Remaking pop culture icons as religious idols

Cross pop culture with religion, and you’ll get Soasig Chamaillard’s Apparitions series, which includes the Virgin Mary restored as pop culture icons like My Little Pony (unsurprisingly dubbed My Little Mary) as well as Super Mario (that ‘stache!). We also love how Chamaillard also turns the table on these pop culture characters, and remakes them as religious idols. We’ve never see Hello Kitty looking so stoic as she does in prayer position.
