muscle bear

This gentle portrait of the North American Muscle Bear is by Whistler's mother. Note the bear-stained sheets and pillowcases. Observe the heart shape formed by the thighs. Take in the armpit action, reminiscent of Picasso's maid's armpits. Absorb the social commentary implied by the foreshortened view which makes the kneecaps as big as the head. Be somewhat disappointed by the penis but simultaneously gratified by the plump sack. Cream all over the tempting tootsies. That's Latin for feet.

Isn't art wonderful?
