Mesh, I think you're usually ... er ... unique in your viewpoints.
Okay let me explain.
So I used to see prints of Raphael's churbs, or prints based on them at least, all the time. Super common on posters. I mean, at least during the Bush years and a little after. Talking Bush Sr. btw. (also I like Sr. u wanna fite about it m8?)
Thing is, when I saw this, I'm not thinking, "Aww, cute angel babies!" or "Aww, soothing imagery of heaven!"
No, there are a few things going through my mind:
1. They look bored. Deeply and existentially bored. And that kind of set my entire concept of the afterlife during the period of time during which I subscribed to a more traditional view of Christianty. It's like the Talking Heads song -- heaven is a place where nothing ever happens. You float around in this nebulous cloud place doing /nothing/.
2. They're naked. So I got the impression that heaven had this forced nudity clause which I was /deeply/ uncomfortable with when I was five or so for various reasons.
3. Color scheme. It's like, sickly yellow, light from a bomb going off, cigarette-stained teeth, funereal sepia tone creepiness.
4. I didn't notice this when I was younger cause I think on posters they usually change the background out with something a lot sunnier/blue, but seriously they're in a hazy void that... looks like it's on fire? Like an a-bomb test?
It's seriously just a painting of spending eternity naked in a sickly-looking void with nothing to do.
