Modern Migration of the Spirit

This painting was created by Jose Clemente Orozco in 1933.  It is called "Modern Migration of the Spirit" and it is a fresco.  This painting shows many vibrant colors.  I like this painting because it is different and very powerful.  I thought that this related prayer because it is Christ off the cross when we usually see him on it.  I chose this painting because I have never seen anything like it.  It portrays Christ taking an ax to his own cross in the ruins of a self-destroyed Machine Age.
