I don't know if this is respectful or just plain blasphemous. I didn't mean him to be blasphemous in any case, hehe.

Well, the brief was someone you admire, and I couldn't think of many things more admirable than letting yourself be killed to save the world, so I made a sock monkey Jesus. Grin
He's made with bleached black socks (they didn't bleach as much as I'd expected, so he looks a bit too dark to be Middle Eastern, but ah, well), fake hair and felt for his beard.

Here's what He probably would have looked like in real life (without the tail of course):

And here he is in the more classical image of Him:

Close-up of his sandals (I found a pair of suede trousers in a charity shop and I've been using them for fake leather things on my plushies ever since):

That's exactly who I was going to do because there is no one I admire more Smiley
And I wrestled with the same question as you too. Great job!

I have a gorgeous granddaughter Smiley

Is that a halo in the second picture? Haha, either way, I love this idea, you did a great job!
