This is what happens when the Internet collides head on with masterpieces of the western artistic tradition. Here, the graceful, lithe forms from classical works of art have been replaced with an fat orange cat. Because why not?
Now, some will say that this is a horrible, destructive thing to do to art. That it is mockery without heart, or reason, and a debasement all of humanity. Be that as it may, this is also a chance for millions who have no interest in “high art” to at least become familiar with it. Also, if a dozen-odd funny cat images isn’t enough to make you click through, I should point out that this post has the most nudity of any Geekosystem post ever. So, there’s that.
We’ve done our best to chase down a provenience for these images, but if we’re wrong we’d love to give credit where it’s due!
