"Art is a lie that tells the truth" -- Pablo Picasso
"in the cave"??? Which gospel is that??
Which gospel is any of these pictures? Maybe the Gospel of Fred.
St. Agatha is my patron saint --actually, she is the patron saint of survivors of breast cancer....
Wank?? St Agatha has just had her breasts hacked off, for Chr-st's sake!! Stunning painting tho'. Caravaggio's Baptist is seriously naughty.
"Wank?? St Agatha has just had her breasts hacked off, for Chr-st's sake!!"In the painting in the previous post, her breasts are being torn off with iron pincers. Yes, I do think some people, maybe a lot of people, found that to be a turn on; just as much as a lot of people will pay $12 a head to see nubile teenagers torn apart in a slasher pic. Nothing sells movie tickets like sex and death together.
Unusual late medieval miniature of a priest of Cybele noticed a couple of days back when I was checking into Caravaggio's John the Baptist, of which there are two versions.
Good God, that Lefevre is gorgeous! :-D..[Religious, not so much...]
Love the Priest of Cybele! Thanks Lapin. Caravaggio painted a lot of young Baptists in varying degrees of lasciviousness.
JCF,I thought you might like it. I'm glad I found it.
Sure it's a Priest of Cybele Lapin, not Origenes?
It's from the Delftboys gay art site, Göran. It's a detail from this miniature. I'd say that the Cybele description is correct. There's another, related miniature here.
