Heroically Religious Art Sacrilege

Found these images from an artist's FB Profile, I'm pretty sure this guy will get some attention from the religious types specially here on our side of the world. The artist Igor Scalisi Palminteri's work adds a coat of paint to religious statues and somewhat rebrands them in a heroic way. I can kind of say I get what he's trying to portray as Saints usually have some sort of super power while super heroes are called upon when people are in need much like the saints. I'm sure not everybody will feel the same way so if you're up to it just go ahead and check out all the interesting repainted figures after the break and do share your thoughts on the comments.
