Veil Between

The Grumpy Vegan recommends the Christian Vegetarianism blog as an invaluable resource on things to do with, er, Christian Vegetarianism. It’s a treasure trove of historic goodies. An excellent example is ‘The Veil Between’ by Jack B. Yeats (1871-1957) which appeared in The Vegetarian dated December 7, 1895. It is, apparently, a lower-third portion of a montage composition. I like the contrast between the two children peering through the curtain shocked at the bull’s slaughter with the delight of the delight of the two Christian men tucking into their charred animal corpse.
