The Face of Satan

With his portrayal of Satan in The Isenheim Altarpiece, Matthias Grünewald offers a profound glimpse into the heart of darkness. After reading The New York Times article, The Talented Mr. Madoff, by Julie Creswell and Landon Thomas Jr., I thought it would be amusing to process/animate Grünewald's Satan and offset it against an animation rooted in a photograph of Bernard Madoff, who has come to exemplify the current pop cultural face of Satan.
