My fashion experiment
In conjunction with my Catholic rock band (seeking bass/drums/keys + ability to sing vocal harmonies), I’m using public domain art to make T-shirts that I think are cool.
I’m using the same printing service I used for Ideamarket’s official T-Shirt, so if you liked those you’ll like these. In my experience, they’re very comfortable and durable — my favorite shirts based on material alone.
Here are the first 3 designs. You can buy them at https://thepearlclutchers.com
St. Benedict of Nursia invented Western monasticism around 500 AD. He was a hermit living alone, but became so holy he kept attracting followers, so he set up monasteries and instituted the first monastic “rule of life” to govern them. Demons hate St. Benedict so much that the circular emblems seen on the sleeves and back of this shirt are often pressed into medals and worn for protection.
Thus, this may be as close to a demon-proof shirt as one can get.
This scene of the Assumption and Coronation of the Virgin Mary (blue) is painted on the ceiling of a German church. Buy it here.
Buonaccorso’s Coronation of the Virgin. The black angels in the back row are seraphim, the “biblically accurate angels” from the meme about how they have a ton of wings and eyes. Buy it here.
