While I am not religious, I have often found some of the most interesting art is generally religious in nature. They speak of belief, legends, lore, history, and faith. All powerful stuff. While on my journies around the world I have acquired some religious art from different cultures. But I never display them. It feels like I would be disrespecting other peoples faiths by using them for petty wall decorations.

What are your views on using religious icons for purely decorative reasons?

Like the rabbit I drew a few days ago and posted here. I felt kind of odd doing that, as it is copying a culture and possibly religion that I know relatively little of. And while I meant no disrespect to Native American culture by making that drawing, I could infact anger and upset many Native Americans if they knew I was subjigating thier cullture. Then again, they may not care. But I don't know.
