For Somewhere under the rainbow. by ~sickmundfraud the suggester writes, "When browsing the front page, I noticed a photograph appropriately titled "Somewhere under the rainbow" that caused me to start feeling angry and defensive from looking at it and reading the artist's description. But a good piece of art is supposed to stir the emotions, isn't it?" ( Suggested by seapuppy and Featured by arbitrarynamechange )

This set me off to thinking along lines that are not compatible with artistic commentary here. I tend to relate that rainbow flag shoved down our throats much differently than most, seeing it as symbolic of the seven Noahide Laws being enforced upon humanity aka The New World Order, etc. ... Truly a good piece ...

On first sight its kinda sweet, but then you see all the bitterness and sorrow beneath it. At least I do. I makes me wanna cry, seriously. A strong and powerful artwork! Lets spread the message :)

I find it really meaningful... both sad and poetic. The contrast highlights the cruelty of the living conditions of some. The association of these bottles with the rainbow"s striking. Great work !

Two sides to this. 1) Humor side. 2) Serious side.
I liked them both.
Although, I doubt you aimed for the humor side of it.
o.O
But, yeah... It's rather cleaver.

This is absolutely incredible.

I don't exactly enjoy the stereotype of alcohol and how it's link to the homeless man, but I've seen it happen, and not always with alcohol, so it's not like I can judge. Nevertheless, I love the contrast of the rainbow, all brilliant and bright, as it contrasts with the presumed doom and gloom of the scene. It adds a certain sense of.....hope. Hope and belief.

Amazing! :heart:
