The painting “The Great Fur,” by Dutchman Hans-Germain Maier (1867-1932), is one of the world’s most famous works of art.
Maier’s artwork depicts a cat on the wall, a dog eating the cat, a bird and an ant in the distance.
But the artist was also an atheist and claimed that God did not exist, according to The Guardian.
In a video posted to his YouTube channel, Maier said, “I believe that God is not a real being, that He does not exist.”
“The Great, the Fur, the God, the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, are not real, they are imaginary,” he said.
Maier also described his painting as an expression of love, but added that “God did not create the world, but man did.”
Maieres response, on his YouTube account, is also interesting, but he has been asked for comment from multiple outlets.
