Why is it so hard to find any info on this stained glass art? Judas Iscariot, hanging from a tree, his soul 'as a baby being pulled out of his belly by satan.
It is in the Chicago Art Museaum in the medieval hall- on the opposite side of the room from where the armor and spears etc are displayed. I think it was made in the 1500's? give or take.
I have tried googling everything I can think of ("judas iscariot" + "art institute chicago", "judas iscariot" + hanging + stained glass) and so on. Tried google links and google images. Can't find a damn thing!

Posted this in previous years, but still applicable for this year's autism awareness week.  It features a page torn from a book by Uta Frith (2003), justifying the use of "it" as a pronoun to refer to autistics.  Would the same justification be so casually made if the book instead dealt with children of a specific ethnic or religious group, deaf or blind children, etc?

Title: Notes on Style

Artist Notes: This is mixed media on canvas board, involving paint, torn book pages, paper cut outs, and zip-tone press type; with some additional editing done on the computer. The text is from a page torn out of the book: Autism: Explaining the Enigma by Uta Frith ( http://books.google.com/books/about/Autism.html?id=1sIxN1qNNDMC )

I've had this multimedia piece hanging around for a couple years now so i figured I'd finish it finally for Autism Awareness Month. I'm not that happy with how it turned out, but it's one less thing sitting here unfinished at least.

Mini snarry digital sketch

Untitled because I *know* something is going on here, but I can't quite figure it out.  They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so please  tell me the story here (though not exactly in a thousand)
