Art history reveals countless adorations of the Christ — ornate pieces, rich with embellishment — that mark a great leap forward in religion and human civilization. This piece marks a similar great leap forward, the moment in history when a child is born with all of human learning literally in the palm of his hand. An initial view of the piece brings a chuckle to see a baby holding an iPhone, yet subsequent views celebrate the arrival of a distinctly new age of instantaneous information, paid for by the encroachment of an occasional cell tower on the horizon.
