I thought I would try to steer away from “Bare Boobs and Breastfeeding” as a primary theme this week, and instead return to another much-loved theme in art, “Hubris.”
This is Frederick Henry, 17th century Prince of Orange, seen here after a tragic accident involving a pencil sharpener, his face, and severe neck trauma requiring use of a Lace Brace.
And this is the “Triumph of Frederik Henrik,” by Jacob Jordaens.
It was a modest triumph, really.
I should note that this was commissioned by Frederick Henry’s consort after his death, to show how awesome he was. But really it goes to show that he couldn’t triumph over death. I assume that that is why Skeletor here is about to stab that pansy angel in the face before moving on to Freddy.
Elsewhere in the heights the Baby Vine crop is literally dripping with fruit, ripe and ready for plucking. Mmm, plump, juicy babies.
Back down on the ground, a naked Father-Son duo practice for their entry to the Hawkeye Initiative. Curve those spines and pop out those tushies, boys!
The son looks like he’s getting up to some mischief, inciting a stampede in the middle of a crowded plaza. This guy has already been trampled to death by overexcited horses.
This is why you should always adhere to the maximum capacity warnings for public spaces. Here it was 100 people OR 50 horses OR 2 hungry lions.
At least the dead trampled guy’s body won’t go to waste.
A few men apparently have a brilliant scheme to steal this life-sized golden statue while no one is paying attention. HEEEEAVE!
