No crushing thighs for our Mother of Jesus, nor any muffin top for Mary Magdalene. During the middle ages these two women were taken most seriously, and were portrayed as lovely. The huge fat women were some kind of joke. [/quote] I dunno man, I looked up MAry Magdalene and this is what I get: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d2/Mary_Magdalene_01.jpg I'd say she looks not exactly stick thin, except in comparison to the cherubs around her. Also she seems to be covered in fur except for her boobs? ????? Was body hair just the bee's knees or, wtf is that about? [/quote]
Every single time I go to an art museum I see these well-done paintings by the masters and some do portray very obese women in nature settings.
Then I have to endure some docent who raps on forever about how in the old days men loved fat women, and being fat was the sign of beauty.
I believe that these paintings are actually the world's first cartoons, and are meant to bring humor and irony into the dreadful medieval existence.
Who's with me?
