A funktified/bizarre caravan sighting in Germany- "The Jesus Wagon"!?

I saw this on one of my favorite bizarre-blogs (heavy on dumpster diving (cool!), and always with some great photos and commentary! I'm talkin' 'bout ClickClackGorilla.com We actually have a Tiny Yellow House video comin' out down the road on the Click-Clack rennovated Caravan/Gypsy Wagon/Vardo as well...the place is incredible- as you'll see, and true to out own tastes, mostly built furnished with free and recycled materials.

As for the photos, they're kinda creepy, honestly (especially the seemingly frightened sheep with the bulging eye), but certainly interesting....and their explanation is further below...

They also remind me of alot of the graffiti art that Lloyd Kahn often photographs....

(from ClickClackGorilla) I meant to share these photos alongside the story about playing in Düsseldorf two weekends ago, but I forgot, so it looks like Jesus wagon gets its very own post.
This Bauwagen lives in Düsseldorf, around the corner from the AZ and the super pretty Wagenplatz. It is apparently used by a church and is open once a week as a sort of coffee, cake, and Jesus mission. The street on which it is parked once was a street full of squats. Now it’s a street full of incredibly diversely, brightly painted buildings. One was done like a crossword puzzle, complete with clues. I wonder how often they get vandals who don’t fill in their answers in pencil.
 And for those who missed out latest video, so as not to bury it- YET....
