  1. It is worth noting that the rays protruding from the head as well as the sphere behind the head was a classical art way to represent diety. Normally you see this on Jesus or Mary. As for being crowned Jesus, don’t think for a second any poloticain wants to die for you sins. They just want others to die for you vote.
