I think it’s true what they say about not buying art to match your furniture but damn this baby would look bitchin with my light blue couch and my Babe the Blue Ox!

But that’s not why I covet it.  I love the tongue-in-cheek goofiness, the meeting of minds between the trickster Krishna and the glamorous Hello Kitty.  Between spirituality and pop culture, the humorous & the holy.  It’s groovy.  I dig it.  Beat.  Plus that crown is FABULOUS!  Vickie Berndt has an amazing vision.  Clever and weird, cutsie yet penetrating.  Last week I dreamt that Berndt’s  “Divine Goddess” (Drag Queen Divine as an Indian Goddess) was stolen!  In the dream I realized that Berndt’s Divine was the new Mona Lisa.
