Portfolio: The Anti-Religious Alphabet

From a portfolio of 27 prints.

As in many other images from the alphabet, the Roman Catholic pope is shown as a dangerous figure; a large knife attached to his rosary substitutes for the traditional Christian cross. Here, however, the pope is unsuccessful in his mission: the large boot of the young anti-religious protagonist from The Anti-Religious Alphabet forcefully removes him from the premises.
