  1. As a religious person and also SW fan, I must say I’m not offended,
    on the contrary I find these art pieces quite funny, intriguing and full of imagination. Added bonus that the author took close observation of icon drawing, and included small elements, like position and gesture of hands, position of held objects, etc.
