Aryan Jesus

You've probably seen depictions of Jesus. We don't really know what he looked like, so it is safe to say that most images are inaccurate. This particular one and others like it I find disturbing for more than its inaccuracy: Jesus, a Jew, depicted as a blond-haired blue-eyed Aryan. I'm not making any implications; I just think it's messed up.

Actually my friend painted it based on the written eye witness description given by Pontius Pilate.
