Artist: Jakob Morgan
Banned/Challenged Book: Lord of the Rings
Reason for Banning: I was surprised when I found out it was banned for “satanic themes” and “witchcraft.”
Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: I chose this book because it is one of my favorite books with its consuming plotline, light and dark themes that pulled me in for hours, and its subtle Christian themes. The ring reflecting in the eye is to show the jealousy. The wizard in the ring is witchcraft and dark backdrop is for the dark themes.
