"Just saying "Alien nativity" is enough to get some people uncomfortable.
For one Portland artist, that is part of the point.
A former NE Portland church is decked out this holiday season for a 3-D journey that is, intentionally, confusing and provocative.
Instead of three wise men, there are four alien magi. There's also a a shaman Santa clause.
Artist Matt Henderson is the one behind the unusual display.
At the end of an unusual journey like this, you might expect to see an alien baby.
"You wind up seeing a reflection of yourself, and that's the point."
Henderson says the purpose of the exhibit is get people to reflect on the potential they have within themselves.
What does he say about people who might be offended?
"It's not for everyone, in that sense," said Henderson."
But there's no proof... Just peoples' accounts.
In the infamous words of the UFO Guy from the Chicago O'hare local news interview, when questioned by a reporter about the existence of ALieNs:
Reporter: "But there's no proof! Just peoples' accounts."
UFO Guy: "You're right, there's no proof... but... There's no proof of Jesus. That's just kinda the way I see things." ;D
