Many Christians believe Dalí's (a devout Roman Catholic) Corpus Hypercubis is the most accurate rendition of Christ because it depicts Him as a 4-D being only partially perceived in three dimensions (Gala is viewing Christ from a 3-D platform placed on a 2-D checkerboard plane).

Salome receiving the head of John the Baptist, by Carravagio. He did three versions of this event. JtB is a critical player in the Christmas narrative but is often underemphasized or overlooked entirely. A difficult character to understand or identify with.
