WORDS FOR LIVING/ PALABRAS QUE DAN VIDA: EASTER AND RELATED TRADITIONS WE KNOW BY THE BIBLE THAT FRIDAY WAS NOT THE DAY OF THE CRUCIFIXION AND THAT EASTER SUNDAY MORNING WAS NOT THE TIME OF HIS RESURRECTION, AS IS SO COMMONLY ASSUMED.

Polish illustrator Pawel Kuczynski's grim and sharply satirical works, which we've featured before here, are a perfect example of art that speaks volumes. Kuczynski's images are so powerful because they force us to face some of the worst realities of our times. It's beautiful – not in a flowers-and-sunlight kind of way, but in a brutally truthful way. He addresses war, political manipulation and hypocrisy, environmental damage, economic disparity and many other ills facing mankind today.
