I give you today your daily visual bread

At first you may think (like I did)  "damn, that guy in the back needs to trim his pubic hair". But then you think through symbols in art and wonder if this is perhaps St John with his old camel skin wrestling some bad ass (actually, that ass is not that bad?) Roman? But did you ever hear a story about that? No. So who could it be? Hercules and his golden fleece battling Anteus in a tight embrace. I love their facial expressions. Like they're pausing mid-fight to pose for the painter.

Or like my kids when they go "he started it".
