When I finished "Crucifixion" which depicts Jesus nude on the cross in outer space- hovering over the world- I entered it in an art show in Beaufort SC, not a particularly open-minded environment.

I went to the show in the afternoon and when I got to my
"Crucifixion" painting was still hung but turned around backwards so no one could view it. I complained but apparently they weren't ready for a "nude" Jesus.

Then I figured I'd give the painting to my brother, who was and still is a minister. He hung it up in the living room. When I was visiting a few month later I found that my painting was now in my brother's closet- another instance of Jesus being nude- which was too much for my brother as well.

I guess that's what happened to the Sistine Chapel when they painted doilies over Michelangelo's work.
