    Aliens Praying to Jesus on Cross: Help Me Find this Artwork Views: 871
     Friday, November 17 2006 @ 08:22 PM EST
    Okay, I need some help. Back when I was about 15 years old, someone in my family gave me a science fiction book that displayed all the various types of science fiction artwork over the years. I received the book in the mid '80s. The book was hard cover, coffee table size (it was rather large) and it had plenty of colorful images.

    One image in particular sticks in my mind:

    An artist had drawn a picture of Jesus on the cross. Surrounding him, were green lizard-like aliens that were praying to him in anguish. I had always thought the image disturbing as it challenged my Catholic beliefs: Man was made in God's image. Yet the artist had created a hypothetical situation: If aliens did exist in the universe, would they pray to Jesus too?

    I've been, off and on, trying to find this picture for many years. Since I don't know the name of the book, the name of the picture, or the artist, I feel like my search is hopeless.

    However, I thought I'd try to post this on the forums here in the off chance that someone has a clue as to what I'm talking about.

    I'd appreciate any help.

    Thank you.

    I have not seen it, but it does sound interesting. If I come across anything, I will let you know.

    Louis, thank you. I know that it was in a book like this one:

    Infinite Worlds : The Fantastic Visions of Science Fiction Art (Hardcover

    I remember that there was a history of science fiction art all through the early years up until the present (maybe late '70s).

    Another picture I remember was of a humanoid alien with a big head trying (with his hands) to block out the noise pollution from space ships flying overheard.
