I really enjoy a lot of Renaissance artwork

Its very hard to interpret, and... like... leaves a lot of creativity on your part to figure out what it means

Plus it has penises. A lot of penises

I like how historians & **** will see something like this & try to make it all meaningful.

They'll say **** like: "The bunny signifies government and the man being ridden is the oppressed society we all live in."

That's when I'm sitting there going: "Bitch, it's a rabbit, riding a naked man!"

It's back when Art meant much more than a pretty picture. It's your fault for thinking there's nothing more to art than how funny it looks. Especially from a period where art was incredibly influential and held pride for countries and governments.

It's easy to look at it that way, but you fail to see from their perspective. In their time, the world was run by monarchy (usually). They couldn't actively draw the royalty being fat pigs and beating their slaves, they would be brutally murdered for treason and **** . So they used symbolism like this. Everyone knew what they meant, but it wasn't something they could really be charged with. Plus, most people couldn't read or write until the late 17th century (something such), which means that the only way they could record history or communicate is through images like this.

It's a different paradigm than you are used to. You aren't used to absolute oppression and the inability to communicate ideas. You aren't used to an illiterate society where pictures must be used to communicate. That's why you think it's just a bunny, but to them this is exactly what profarnsworth explained.

Actually the rabbit represents Royalty or the upper class. Royalty were always announced with trumpets and in many cases would go out and hunt rabbits and other animals for sport. The man signifies the peasant class, they own nothing not even the clothes on their backs and yet royalty still uses them to make their lives easier. But the symbolism behind the image is that without the peasants the Royalty or upper class would not be able to stand.

My best take without any background information as a senior history major. Now if you told me the time period, maybe showed me the rest of the picture, or even the place it was created i could probably give you a more accurate and better theory.

If I'm not mistaken, Opium was really popular as a recreational drug during the Renaissance.   
   
But I'm not sure Opium was a hallucinogen, so that might not be the reason.   
   
Also, Spiderman thread.

Sorry for being 'that guy'. That's not Renaissance at all. That's medieval but renaissance supposedly shows the perfect human form with perspective. Science and geometry was also important.

Oh, you want a true artistic master piece?
Stick this historical baby through a Latin translator- and yes, this is legit Roman poetry.

"Pedicabo ego vos et irrumabo,
Aureli pathice et cinaede Furi,
qui me ex versiculis meis putastis,
quod sunt molliculi, parum pudicum.
Nam castum esse decet pium poetam
ipsum, versiculos nihil necessest;
qui tum denique habent salem ac leporem,
si sunt molliculi ac parum pudici
et quod pruriat incitare possunt,
non dico pueris, sed his pilosis
qui duros nequeunt movere lumbos.
Vos, quod milia multa basiorum
legistis, male me marem putatis?
Pedicabo ego vos et irrumabo."

Well, the content is about paintings not poetry but nevertheless, why did OP take the ********* painting from the Rennaissance era?

Art is found in all forms of things that have no use other than being itself.
So basically entertainment that doesn't teach or do anything except entertain.
User avatar #79 to #72 - schneidend ONLINE (12/05/2012) [-]
Art can do much more than entertain. It can make a statement like a political cartoon, or intrigue people for centuries like the Mona Lisa, or piss off a nation's "moral majority" so much that they try to get it declared obscene such as Allen Ginsberg's Howl.

For the Lazy souls out there.

I will sodomize you and ********* you,
pussy Aurelius and catamite Furius,
you who think, because my poems
are sensitive, that I have no shame.
For it's proper for a devoted poet to be moral
himself, [but] in no way is it necessary for his poems.
In point of fact, these have wit and charm
if they are sensitive and a little shameless,
and can arouse an itch,
and I don't mean in boys, but in those hairy old men
who can't get it up.[24]
Because you've read my countless kisses
you think less of me as a man?
I will sodomize you and ********* you.

I have this book of compilation of weird **** renaissance drawing

I still figured why there's a creature with fish body, chicken head and human legs, wears apron and boots like a butcher

or a fish with human legs fishing a fish
