Behold, The Madonnas of Science

Currently on display at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art: the work of artist Chris Shaw, who re-imagines historical depictions of the Virgin Mary swaddling not wee baby Jesus, but an atom inspired by the discovery of the Higgs Boson, an armillary sphere, and a red, writhing squid. Bonus: admission is free. » 5/08/13 1:20pm 5/08/13 1:20pm
