"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55
These are two paintings by Giuseppe Arcrimboldo, who was a native of Milan and lived in the 1500's. I snapped them from the newspaper. He was a court painter for several of the Hapsburg rulers, and has been rediscovered in the past century as the artist who virtually invented the still life and may have been the first surrealist. He loved to paint fruit, flowers, vegetables, and fish. And had some fun with them, too. Look at these two pictures when turned upside down. Actually, which painting did he view as the right side up one? This reminded me of a book Phil has called "The Upside Down Kingdom". It is about how God's kingdom is pretty much upside down from the world's. In the world, power is everything. To God, being a servant is everything. So maybe upside down is the right way to look at things, after all.
