Cuidado com o Deus / Beware of the God


A igreja Anglicana da Nova Zelândia para comunicar um dia em que iria haver um baptismo de animais de estimação, colocou este sinal em diversos gradeamentos nomeadamente o da própria igreja, no sinal diz: "Cuidado com o Deus" aqui faz-se um trocadilho em inglês de Dog=cão, God=Deus.

In order to comunicate a ‘pet blessing’ the Anglican church in New Zealand,placed this sign in several wire fences.

Bizar if you ask me. This message is displayed all over Sydney. Even with skylights.

Claudio is confused, they are two entirely separate projects.

Two years before the New Zealand church sign, a big public art project with the same name began in Australia.

It comprises a 30 second movie, shown in the subway stations:

It was originally commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, but has continued to
grow. The website is now getting over 12,000 individual visitors a month. It examines in depth the intersections of religion and politics.
