St John the Baptist's head

"Regarding John's death, Josephus states that Herod had John killed to preempt a possible uprising. Matthew links John's death as well with Herodias, as he related that her daughter Salome so much delighted Antipas with a dance that he vowed to grant her any wish to which, after being prompted by her mother (Herodias), she demanded the head of John the Baptist. (Matthew 14:6-8)"

With slighty art-nouveau symmetry, I decided upon a cyberpunk/steampunk, post-apocalyptic theme whereupon the Head of John the Baptist, connected and alive artificially, still prophetizes and probably speaks in Glossolalia.

Dear God, you´re the FIRST person to actually realize my little inside joke! It *IS* a Flux Capacitor! And I'll make it into a print just because you mentioned it ;) . I'm so glad SOMEBODY figured it out :D

It's wonderful how its a serious subject but the imagery is almost comical. Nice approch.
