Jesus performs miracles with his money

The ideal eyes, from the Roman perspective, were large with long eyelashes. Pliny the Elder wrote that eyelashes fell out from excessive sex and so it was especially important for women to keep their eyelashes long to prove their chastity.

Kohl was the main ingredient in eye makeup, and was composed of ashes or soot and antimony, with saffron usually added to improve the smell. Kohl was applied using a rounded stick, made of ivory, glass, bone, or wood, that would be dipped in either oil or water first, before being used to apply the kohl The use of kohl as makeup came from the east. In addition to kohl, charred rose petals and date stones could be used to darken the eyes.

    Ever notice how feminized and Bambi-like the Caucasian Jesus always looks? If a long lashed, big-eyed model of beauty were the ideal savior portrait, then why aren’t people (aside from Jess of course, 1st apostle of Depp) just putting up photos of Johnny Depp and praying to them?

      Some years back I remember reading a version of “The Book of Mormon” with pictures, they had Jesus with long blonde hair.
