Mien Girls

There’s more to add to this when there’s more time to type, but I just wanted to share a painting that’s been cracking me up this week.

“Judith Victorious” (1530) by Lucas Cranach the Elder

1530?? Is it me, or does Judith look like a sassy lass from a trashy teen movie? Like, “yeah, I cut off that fugly dude’s head. NBD.”

Like some Renaissance Amanda Seyfried. (<–it took 11 google minutes to find her name—apparently “that wide-eyed evil-looking teen actress” isn’t how she’s known in the industry.)
