Over the years, I must have seen thousands of paintings, sculptures, depictions of God, Jesus, saints, Biblical characters. I don’t ever recall seeing anyone smiling or laughing. Since joy and humor are so integral to being human, I wonder why.

I do, of course, realize gloominess isn’t limited to Xtianity (I love Bodhidharma’s ill-temperedness!), just that it’s the religion in which I’ve seen most works of art.
Love all these answers, but I was blown away by
