It's the most wonderful time of the year!



Merry Herodmas!

Comments

When these paintings were first exhibited, I wonder if they were labeled "disturbing" and the artist posthumously psychoanalyzed for possibly being a deranged child killer. Likewise whoever put this in the Bible & Apocrypha.

Sorry, pet peeve of mine.

Shouldn't this be included with all the other paintings on the Massacre of the Innocents article?

I think it's better than some of the ones that are there now.

I looked at that picture and thought, "What a sappily conventional Christmas card it would make. Look at all the red and gold and green, and the old guy with a long white beard." Not only is one soldier in pink tights running through a baby, but both Herod and Sir Richard Pryor are pointing at the action, in case you miss the point.
