No, the Renaissance is not over. It was reborn.
He-Gassen, or "the fart war” from Japan’s Edo Period (1603-1868) depicts an epic battle of gas between booty-baring men and women on horseback and on foot. Even a cat gets caught up in the fray at one point, but the meaning of all the images is the same: this scroll and similar drawings were created in response to increasing intrusion...
An amazing detailed look at some great weirdness from the past.
These paintings are objective. Really.
