"For the world we see is like a sack placed over our heads, so that we are blind to the true nature of things; yet there are places where the sack-cloth is threadbare, where the fabric of it is worn thin, and strange sights may sometimes be seen..."

Gold Orphic Prayer Sheet
Greek 
c.350-300 BC
Folded in with the ashes of the deceased in a bronze urn, this lamella provides instructions about the path to be followed in the underworld to ensure salvation. Gold lamellae are quite rare. 
The soul of the dead is thirsty, this guides the soul to the correct spring from which to drink (other springs in the underworld cause memory loss). The soul is often asked about its origin and should reply with the formula provided on the sheet.

Bottles of Gatorade Blue Bolt floating in a bath of Powerade Mountain Blast, 2013

I can’t tell if this is seriously art or if it’s just tongue in cheek sarcastic art or if it’s post-ironic ironic art, or ironic art, or literally just a joke and that is so not okay.
