Barcelona, a photo a day

St Piggy?


Our Lady of Bethlehem parish church… Sounds serious, catholic, etc. But… What is this strange window on the church??? OK, I can imagine who’s the guy with the beard on top, and who’s the one with the halo, underneath. But what of the thing in blue on the photo, wearing trendy shades? Can someone explain??? Don’t want to shock anyone with christian sensibilities, but any way I look at it, any way I turn or twist it, I only see a piglet! This is bizarre!

  1. Ha ha! Imagine that design draft: We also want a pig in it. With cool shades, a hoody and a smirk. A fly pig, you dig?

    It looks like it was meant to be a dove, with its tail artistically (not really) blending into the father’s beard and its head is piggy´s snout bit.

  2. I think the designer pulled a fast one. Looks like a pig to me! What is it? 'You can't make a silk purse out of a sows ear!'
    Well- you can't make that stained glass not look quite…
    piggy!

  5. That is a genuinely bizarre window. “Weird” also fits. I wonder if the chuch paid the bill from the artist . . .

  8. After sitting here stumped for awhile, I'm going to make a serious guess and assume that it's supposed to be the Holy Ghost. After all, they have the father and the son, and this… thing… has a halo such as theirs. So, using my excellent deductive reasoning, I think it must be the holy spirit. A very piggy holy spirit!
