And it was originally nothing but an excuse to make a dirty joke about clams.
Given the status of this painting and how his name rolls off the tongue, it seems a downright injustice that the artist, Sandro Botticelli, never had a Ninja Turtle counterpart. But then you scan down past the overall beauty of the piece and notice what lurks at the bottom. Seriously, every single foot in this painting is really messed up.
Tarantino still masturbates to this, but it doesn't feel right.
Every character in this scene is standing on a pair of grotesque, arthritic sausage feet with a bone structure that gives podiatrists priapism. You might think that Botticelli was simply out of practice here and presumably spent some time later on perfecting his foot game, but the weird foot thing is evident throughout much of his work. In Lamentation Over The Dead Christ, Jesus himself is suffering the same bizarre bone deformity and elongated sausage toes, with some weird backward-bending dog legs for good measure.
