Saint Franklin

Published 7 years ago

The cult of St. Franklin is widespread in different manifestations and forms around the world. “Saint Franklin” may take different semblances and change depending on time and location. It embodies the current visual form for a specific period and space.

Among the large number of religions and faiths of the world, “Saint Franklin” and his other forms takes the first place in the number of followers.

People worship “Saint Franklin” sometimes without noticing and realising that.

For the post-Soviet space, especially the manifest in the likeness of “Saint Franklin” is the main object of worship.

The portrait of a hundred-dollar bill, a well-recognizable and desirable for everybody, is a symbol and a unit of the material world.

The portrait of Benjamin Franklin on the $100 bill has been placed on a sacred icon which is an object of worship for the Catholics and Orthodox.

This is not an attempt to blame church for obvious things. And this is not an allegation against Benjamin Franklin for his materialism and attitude toward the religion and church. This is just another instance of visualization of materialism.

Franklin said that “Serving God is doing good to man, but praying is thought an easier service and therefore more generally chosen”.

And some people do “pray” and “honor” Franklin depicted on the $ 100 bill.

(Works (collages 15X18cm and 39X59cm) are hand made from the portrait of Benjamin Franklin on the $100 bill has been placed on a sacred icon).
