|tiffer23||I'm highly doubting that the artist had any idea about Maddox's penis. Nor would that be where most people's eye would take them. I don't think there's any idea whether he is or isn't intact.|

|Lula's Mom||If a person were to google Angeline Jolie Painting Kate, a person might find that the artist's blog comes up first on the list! And then the person might ask the artist directly, and she might clear this up herself. That would be cool, theoretically!|

Only if he were aware of it and was thinking about it. It just might not occure to him that he might want to change the penis from the painting he was using as a model to look more modern american and less italian renaisance. Also such a change might make it harder to see the connection to iconic religious art.

|Past_VNE||The artist states that she painted Maddox after this painting, whose child is intact. Not that it matters, the art has little to do with the status of the actual child.|

well considering the actual painting is about 7feet tall, im sure you could see alot more detail in person than zooming in on a comparitivley low resolution JPEG image. As for the children being painted in a style similar to cherubs who would normally be intact, as an amature artist i can atest to the fact that artists take liberties in making changes in their works that are not accurate to their source images all the time. Its part of being an artist. If anything i think the artist would have painted the boy as circumcised as a further statement about american culture. I think the website image is just to low of resolution to make a call either way. I guess someone could always try to email the artist at her website to find out.
what did the covers say i could only read one of them?

Ilaria: Your kids are so beautiful! the photos are wonderful and ALL the kids are so cute. That trip must have been a fantastic experience for the whole family.
But you see, the thing is, sometimes I guess there's the feeling in America that things in USA are more sophisticated = better. Many have simply lost touch with nature and don't trust it - or their own bodies for that matter - anymore. In other words, many people live under the impression that other cultures are only intact because they don't have the resources/education to know 'better'. How sad and how wrong.
Having said that, an interesting comparison is with Western European countries where the differences in culture, education and the state of medicine are much less significant. Here, as you know, we're "medically sophisticated" (whatever that may mean) AND happily intact! (oh, and kids also run around naked when it's warm enough)

I think he looks cut, that little mushroom glans sticking out with no 'point', you know.
Cambodians are of course not cut, I have seen hundreds as most kids under age 4 run around naked there. Here is a cute picture of mydaughter with some local kids(they had neverseen a little girl with that hair!)

Since I dought Angelina took them in to pose nude he probably used old italian masters paintings of cherubs as a model for the bodies, and of course they were intact.

Tis a statement about American Culture idolizing celebrities in a deity type way.

|Ambrose||What I don't understand is why is she depicted over a WALMART??? It makes the image of her and her children less beautiful to me.|
|01-10-2007 10:38 PM|
And I'm sure she's lovin' the publicity - this photo is EVERYWHERE right now.

|Irishmommy||Awesome likeness of her face.|

I mostly noticed the people in "Walmart"- who they chose to represent in there and what they wrote on the magazine covers!

|AXEius||i think he looks cut, you can see what appears to be the meatus (slit) and there is no cone shape or any thing to the end which would imply an infant foreskin. I think the artist just didnt pain't his glans dark or his scar line to give a more homoginized skin tone to the area so as not to be a focal point. I could be wrong though. I saw this painting online a couple days ago and thought it was hilarious. I'm sure Angelina doesnt like it but its not really about her, but a statement the artist was giving about american society.|

|Nathan1097||Anybody consider the fact that maybe they painted him that way because ALL cherubs are painted that way and its supposed to mimic an old painting? Probably has nothing to do with if he's intact or not.|
|01-10-2007 09:41 PM|
I'd be FURIOUS if someone painted a nude portrait of my child(ren)!!!!

|minkajane||Is the picture available to view online somewhere?|

|Cherries10700||I can't stand her, but when she was on the news yesterday talking her normal blah blah blah, I wondered about her son's penis. If she's all about what she says she's is, then I would assume he's intact. So I guess I like her 1%.|

This was in Monday's Globe & Mail (Review; R3); Monday, January 8, 2006:
Blessed Art Thou by Kate Kretz features Angelina Jolie and her children depicted as the Virgin Mary hovering over a Wal-Mart checkout line is a painting and is sale for $50,000 (U.S.)
It features an in-the-clouds naked Angelina standing there covered in the front (barely) w/ long flowing silk as her son Maddox and daughter Zahara standing naked on each side of her and holding baby Shiloh in her arms covered in slik. The artist is trying to make a social statement and stuff, but what I found fascinating is the fact that Maddox appears to be INTACT, just like Cambodian males are!!!
