The Entombment of Mike

Art is a wonderful thing, ain’t it? It’s a great word too, art. Say it out loud a few times: art, art, art, art, art.

Great! Now that everybody else in the room thinks you’re imitating a sea lion, we can get down to the business at hand:

Entombment of Mike

Judith Slaying Roblofernes

While I was working on my Caravaggio individual study on a Wednesday night, the good folks at Stagnant Water and I tried our hands at imitating Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio’s Entombment of Christ and Judith Slaying Holofernes.

Note the stunning accuracy of Michael “The Art Chameleon” Mosely’s gender-flexible portrayals of both Judith and the body of Christ, as well as Molly “Sheldó” Sheldon’s uncanny old maidservant.
