When modern art rocks my world.

I usually limit my artistic raptures to early icons (Russian or Slavic) and gothic masterpieces. I simply don't trust a lot of my artistic impulses. But once in a while, I come across something post-modern (like that John Collier I posted) that astonishes me. Here's another one. This sculpture stands in Koln, Germany, as a memoriam to Edith Stein (whom I quoted at length yesterday).

Very cool! I'll have to send this one to my dad, he's a secular Carmelite and his community is named after St. Teresa Benedicta. I went to her canonization Mass with him. Awesome quote from her yesterday too, by the way.

That's so neat. I'd love to meet your dad someday.
