A new painting depicting President Barack Obama [click here to read] as Jesus Christ on the cross will be unveiled today at New York City’s Union Square – South Plaza.

Artist Michael D’Antuono’s painting “The Truth” features Obama with his arms outstretched and wearing a crown of thorns upon his head.

According to a statement released about the portrait, “The 30″ x 54″ acrylic painting on canvas depicts President Obama appearing much like Jesus Christ on the Cross: atop his head, a crown of thorns; behind him, the dark veil being lifted (or lowered) on the Presidential Seal. But is he revealing or concealing, and is he being crucified or glorified?”
