An Andy Warhol Christmas

The American artist and pop icon Andy Warhol was one of the first artists I admired as a middle-school kid in the early seventies.  But I only discovered his sweeter side when I looked at a package of Christmas cards about ten years ago. 

The following is an excerpt from a Washington Post article entitled A Look at Andy Warhol's Spiritual Side:

The man often called the Pope of Pop attended Mass several times a
week, worked in a soup kitchen, kept a crucifix and devotional book on
his bedside table and prayed daily with his mother, a devout Byzantine
Catholic who lived with him until her death in 1972.

(For a more complete post on the life and work of Andy Warhold, please see my post here)

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
