Icons, over framed, are still important in this cybernetic age. Unmarked maps with amulets may help the lost. As men drink and sleep, animals run toward the flames. Portraits of healers and survivors, along with devils and martyrs, may help us understand. According to the Church, end time means the end of evil. Did the talking snake know?
