In these drawings the contrast between religion and capitalism is fused together.
Monumental and famous skyscrapers are put in another context, when they have been robbed of their imposing status. They have lost their usual appearance and are now portrayed as humble wooden churches, standing in a desolate area.
The original purpose of these churches was to exercise religion. A gathering place for the spiritual needs of humanity. Now that these churches are abandoned this purpose is left in vain. The original purpose of these skyscrapers was also to exercise a religion. but in another way, they had a commercial value, they were the cathedrals of capitalism.
Now that these two buildings have been fused the skyscraper is all of the sudden surrendered to a humble position. the contrast between capitalism and religion disappears. And capitalism becomes nothing more than an over exercised religion, without solidarity and nothing short of an ideology which will inevitably fail.
