Another Pantheon

AJ Fosik does brilliant things with paint and wood.

My first reaction to his work was:

“Hey, these look like idols from some kind of belief system!”

Which, if we’re to go by the review on his website, is his goal: to dethrone belief in gods or God by creating his own personal iconography.  Fascinating, as Spock would put it.

Beautiful stuff, too!  His craft is flawless.
