Artist's Description

Inspired by the eleventh day of the Lent study “Atheism for Lent” – http://www.atheismforlent.net/social-control/

Todays study was looking at Marx’s idea that religion was simply a tool for controlling the masses, here I wanted to show this idea with the blinkered, gagged, and chained figures walking past the chained Christ, who was trying to free himself from the confines of oppressive religious ideology.

Created in PS CS6, total time around 90min
