The First Sefportrait of Jesus

Cepp Selgas / Mixed media / 5X3in. / 1986.

This image is from the original artwork of a Christmas postcard. It's got on its back the "Brielgas" logo designed by Ernesto Briel. Brielgas was the playful way Reinaldo Arenas use to call us, combining both our last names. This postcard came about in those early years when Madonna (the singer), was rising and rising to heaven above until the end of time. And of course, I did what any other-red blooded-Jesus would do on such an occasion, because at the end...we are still only human.
