Belgian model Marisa Papen has faced a barrage of online abuse after she posed naked in front of Jerusalem’s most sacred sites.
Ms Papen posted the controversial image of herself lying naked overlooking the Western Wall in Jerusalem.
In a blog post called ‘The Wall of Shame’, Ms Papen defended the series of photos which were taken on a three-day road trip through Israel, where she travelled from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, The Telegraph reports.
“I know my mailbox is about to fill up with threats and angriness again – to all the people typing down their ferocity right now, save your energy. I don’t even open them,” the post reads.
The purpose of the photoshoot was too “push the boundaries of religion and politics even further”.
How brave of her. I think she could continue doing so by not just doing such a photoshoot at the most scared site in Judaism, but also other most sacred sites.
I suggest next she goes to Mecca, and pushes the boundaries there with a naked photoshoot. Probably no need to book in any more after that.
