French Artist Soasig Chamaillard Remixes Virgin Mary Statues Into Superman and Mario, May Be Struck By Lightning Soon

Here at ComicsAlliance, we’ve seen enough statues of pop culture icons that we’ve started to take it for granted. French artist Soasig Chamaillard, however, has discovered a pretty eye-catching new twist: Taking found and damaged statues of the Virgin Mary and restoring them into pop culture icons like Superman, the Jedi Knights and more.

As you might expect, not everyone is thrilled with seeing the Mother of Christ palling around with Astro Boy or transformed into a bizarre My Little Pony centaur — as reported by our colleagues over at the Huffington Post, a gallery exhibit last year prompted responses like d”May this ‘artist’ burn in hell and may flames devour this gallery,” which is a pretty high level of criticism. Still, there’s no denying that Chamaillard has put a lot of work into modernizing these discarded icons. Check out a few of them after the cut!
