Come Hither and Bring me a Cookie

I can't decide whether he's more Venus of Urbino or Carravagio's Bacchus.







Image hosted by Photobucket.comNotice how Bacchus is posed in that peculiar Roman patrician reclining posture to eat. To me, that does not seem like a body position that would lend itself to ease of digestion, and seems much more awkwardly uncomfortable than luxurious. Perhaps lounging about like that made it easier to transition into post prandial orgy time. Sadly, it seems like the existence of vomitoriums was greatly exaggerated, so perhaps such other "Fall of Rome" depravities like orgies were as well. Interestingly enough, during Roman banquets one's seating and posture indicated rank - only the those of the highest rank got to recline. Humans, it seems, are as obsessed as chickens with hierarchy.

Comments:
Definitely Venus
 
at least Venus is covering her coochie --fof
 
And speaking of the coochie-covering...that's not really something to be doing while eating with your hands, is it?
