    ‘Madonna of Dark Matter’ and ‘Madonna of the Suicide Vest’ are the only brown ones.

    OK, I recognize Madonna of House Greyjoy there, but I’m unfamiliar with the other house sigils…

    That one with the squid made me wish fervently for a Madonna with FSM.  Please, please, please tell me there is one.

    “For Shaw, the Madonna is just another propaganda icon, a vessel to be filled up with whatever one is trying to sell. ”

    well its a good thing he used christian imagery, and imagery of what is generally regarded as a European religion. Because, say, he’d used native american imagery, or made pics of Muhammad, he’d be in a heap of trouble with people who micro-whine about microaggressions.
