Messiah Obama

There are inter-religious expectations that Obama will save the world as the Messiah. Tradition has it that the Messiah would come on a white donkey.

In this Photoshop photomontage I added gold embroidery of a six-pointed star since this symbol is:

  1. Connected to the Messiah (and to the House of King David)
  2. An inter-religious symbol adored by Muslims Christians Hindis and Jews for generations.

Printers’ Mark

This printer mark is copied from Project Gutenberg, Printers' Marks - A Chapter in the History of Typography, by William Roberts, 1893. Printer William Faques designed this between 1499 and 1508. It has scriptural quotations on a white and black hexagram.

I thank Zeev Bonovitzky for referring me to this interesting appearance of the hexagram.
