iconoclasm
  • noun
    The action of attacking or assertively rejecting cherished beliefs and institutions or established values and practices. (Elite law schools cherish robust debate, iconoclasm, and arguing issues from all sides, right?)
    The rejection or destruction of religious images as heretical; the doctrine of iconoclasts. (The staff stands for Aaron and his power without mimetically representing him, as the painting seems paradoxically to observe the Hebraic ethos of iconoclasm that the Jewish leader first violated.)
