Spoofing Bacchus

Bacchus showed signs of alcohol abuse at a very young age. 

Note from me" I needed to lighten up so I'm posting this send-up for you.  This is an actual painting by Guido Reni; not an art parody.  I had to do a search on it to make sure!  :-D
I wish I had photoshop; it would be fun to caption it right on the image.

Bosh is best known for his tryptichs, depicting fantastic imagery to illustrate the religious and moral preoccupations of his time.

Perhaps his most famous tryptich is The Garden Earthly Delights. I'll show you the whole piece, followed by several of my favorite details from the panels. The details contained within these three panels are amazing to behold, whether you're a fan of Bosh's style and subject matter, or not.

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
