Twenty Eight Days of February # 15

Austin’s Blanton Museum of Art is worth its weight in gold… or by the standards of this work of art by Cildo Meireles (Brazilian artist) copper pennies and bones; 600,000 pennies, 2,000 cattle bones, 800 communion wafers, 80 paving stones and a black clothe. Entitled Missao/Misseos (Mission/Missions or Cathedral), Meireles has created an intriguing masterpiece. An expression of what happens when the heart of the church  collides with its dark side.
