Tantric Jesus?

Pin It

Tantric Jesus?  Please explain:

"In 1974, home appliance retailer Yamagiwa Corporation printed 1,974 copies of a promotional poster featuring a Jesus portrait by noted pop artist Tadanori Yokoo. The poster depicts Christ in front of a colorful mandala-like pattern centered around an inverted triangle, which Yokoo described as being a Tantric symbol of Shakti, the feminine creative energy of the universe, though it could just as well represent the Holy Trinity."

A home appliance retailer?!  What were they promoting?!!  Mmmm Tantric Jesus!
