Message Subject Renaissance masters did not paint fat women as art, they were the world's first cartoons

And the masters of the same time period painted the Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalene as shapely, normal-sized women.

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.

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?
