Psychedelic Jesus

made in Australia 1960s

Jesus as you’ve never seen him before – with a totally hippy vibe- just look at that crazy psychedelic background!

Jesus is in plain dress [tick] got a beard and long hair [tick] –kinda coiffured for a carpenter, but let’s not quibble – but there’s no halo- and no sentimental inscription.  Just hippy Jesus on a totally rad background sort of looking up.

Like many icons of the 60s this is made of metal, with the picture sort of puffed out, and a metal stand behind to hold it up.

But unlike any other icon I’ve collected this picture shows Jesus embracing the totally happening 60s – I wonder if it was made by a progressive Catholic group or if the image was produced accidentally. We may never know- but – what an image!

The psychedelic Jesus is for sale: $AUD35
