That's a good policy, I think.

Found this on Failblog. Is this a real Madonna and Child from the Middle Ages? It's hilariously bad :D

I wonder if it ever looked any better before some of the paint wore off. Because it is really quite expressive, now. The dude pointing a finger behind her back only adds to the overall theme of wtf.

I mean, quite honestly, if you were Mary, wouldn't you be having a lot of WTF moments? I'm pretty certain I would have. I can't speak for Jesus, though, but I could see it. God of the universe, Creator of all things, condensed into human form. Yeah, that's a pretty big WTF feeling, I'd say.

Anyway, it's hilarious. :D

I'd really like to know if it's a Medieval painting and have a look at the rest of it (are the other faces in the painting as bad?). We tend to put antiquities on a pedestal, but I guess it's important to remember that every era had its bad artists.

Unless the artist was actually a brilliant satirist and really meant the facial expressions to be what they are.

Or a real painting but subtly altered. All you'd have to do is change the mouths slightly. To me, the uniform red of their mouths looks a little suspicious.

It's a funny image, all the same.

I actually thought of that, and covered the mouths with my finger. They're still giving each other weird looks.

And what's that hand behing the baby that looks like it's going to grab it?

I don't know - apart from the mouths, the weird looks don't seem too unusual for a medieval painting - especially one from a not-so-talented painter trying to portray adoration. The figures from that era are so stylized and unrealistic. To me, Mary looks like she has some bizarre skeletal malformation in this one.

I'll bet that hand is supposed to be something symbolic and spiritual.

Has anyone tried a reverse image search on it? Can't do it from the phone.
