Italian Elvis Series Shows Surrealistic Elvis Art

The surrealistic work from artist Frank D. Mayes III is on exhibition in Georgia, USA. The controversial pieces are made from well known religious pieces that are modified to modern scenes. The 4-panel 'Birth, Life and Crucifixion' is painted on a wooden panel, 7x7 feet, and has a link to paintings of Jesus Christ. In the top panel, Elvis is looking down on his life, on the right his birthouse in Tupelo, on the left Las Vegas (where he still lives further in the way of impersonators), it seems to be that the 3 crucified men can be compared to the authors of the book 'Elvis: What Happened'.

Iam sure if Elvis was alive he would found that insane i mean..... Elvis was a man and Jesus was the son of God. Elvis din't like the idea to be called the King imagine if he knew people compare him to Jesus Christ! he totally desagree that's for sure! Elvis was the greatest signer of all time ... he was not Divine just a wonderful man

Horrible to look at, blasphemy, kitsch. I love Elvis, but wouldn't want to get this for a present.
