Not wow - OW, as in that hurts!

Neanderthal Jesus?

tubbs said...

not neanderthal, but not 19th century wussy-WASP either.
And certainly not the northern euro-type from the Turin shroud hoax.
Iconographically, it may be very off, because the Baptist is never seen taller/higher than Jesus.

Looks like the Geico cavemen!

"Pow!" came to my mind. Baptism by egg.

The only thing that would make me paint anything like this would be the choice between doing that and taking part in a liturgical prance.

What's with the closed eyes?

This is beyond words...I can't think of a single cuss word that could match the deprivation of this painting.

(sorry...)

I need a Pepto Bismal...wait..give it to Jesus..he looks like he needs it more. Give St. John the Baptist a few phenobarbitals...

For the good art, the best art, for The Baptism of the Lord, go to the Web Gallery of Art, search for Giovanni Bellini, and find his Baptism, the one in Vicenza.
