Joshua Huver 12 March, 2008 REL 1120 J. Bird Cultural Artifact: The Buddy Christ The object that I decided to choose for my cultural artifact is a semi-well known and humorous image and symbol created from a similar and definitely more serious piece of legit artwork. The object is called the ‘Buddy Christ’ and is a colorful depiction of Jesus pointing and giving a thumbs up while winking. It was created by Kevin Smith, a movie writer/director/actor for his film Dogma . From what I know, Smith was raised Catholic and has a very argumentative and debate oriented personality. His films are always very dialogue driven and include topics from religion, comics, politics, social taboo and Star Wars, all the while incorporating hilarious points and crude jokes. Particularly in Dogma , Smith deals more with religion and tackles religious traditions and beliefs head on, and the Buddy Christ is a key driving component of the campaign.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
