That is some seriously creepy "artwork"! What, exactly, is it claimed that is supposed to BE? I agree, the thing most resembles a demonic face to
me, as well.

This sculpture is very disturbing, especially its placement in the Vatican.
Consider the sculptor's description of what this is intended to be:
The Vatican commissioned Mr. Fazzini to provide a work for its modern auditorium. The result was ''The Resurrection,'' a statue depicting Jesus
rising from a nuclear bomb crater.
''Suddenly there came to me the idea of Christ preaching peace for 2,000 years, and the place where He prayed for the last time: the olive grove of
Gethsemane,'' said Mr. Fazzini in a book about the work. ''I had the idea of depicting Christ as if He were rising again from the explosion of this
large olive grove, peaceful site of His last prayers. Christ rises from this crater torn open by a nuclear bomb; an atrocious explosion, a vortex of
violence and energy.''
Ah, I see.....well, appreciate the explanation, anyway. No matter what the artist states, that is very creepy! Not at all Biblical, either, as
Christ doesn't rise from a pile of death and destruction in such a fashion. I honestly can't understand why an organization that is supposedly
following Jesus, according to the Bible, would have such "artwork" around. That thing gives me the creeps.
