Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s New York office features an oil painting in which two men are preparing to eat another human.
The image, which was shown during a 2015 exposè on the Clinton campaign headquarters by Politico, was lent to Podesta by his lobbyist brother Tony.
The painting was specifically mentioned 9 months later in an article on Podesta by Time Magazine.
“On the wall in his office at Hillary Clinton’s Brooklyn headquarters, campaign chairman John Podesta has an oil painting on loan from his lobbyist brother, who is an avid art collector,” the Time article states. “The image shows two men hunched over a dining room table, bearing knives and forks. On the table lays a man in a suit, who looks vaguely like Podesta.”
Podesta explained during the interview that he regularly tells colleagues that he would prefer to be the man with the fork.
“It’s better to be the guy with the fork than the guy on the table,” he said.
The image resurfaced on social media Friday after emails published by WikiLeaks revealed both John and his brother Tony’s connection to Marina Abramović, a performance artist known for gory and occultist performances.
Podesta’s painting is incredibly similar to one of Abramović’s art displays in which she and pop star Lady Gaga eat off of a mock bloodied body. …

The WikiLeaks emails specifically surrounded Abramović inviting both the Podesta brothers to attend an event known as “Spirit Cooking.”
“Spirit Cooking is an event and central ritual started by Marina Abramović, who is an artist known for her gory performances and occultist rituals,” the website Everipedia notes.
“The origins of Spirit Cooking can be found in the preludes to production of the Cake of Light material, a sacrament in the religion of Thelema which was founded by Aleister Crowley.” …
Video of Abramović engaging in the ritual, which involves menstrual blood, breast milk, urine and sperm, can be found online….
