Paris is well-known for its richness in arts, such as paintings and sculptures. Being able to witness such artistic collections made me understand them a little better, in an amusing way though. You’ll know why as you read on.
During my visit to Paris, I’ve visited 2 museums – Rodin Museum and the famous Lourve Museum.
To be honest, I’m not an art lover and I find it very hard to appreciate the value and significance of the artworks. So to all art lovers reading this, no offense ya? =)
For your information, most of the museums in Paris require an entrance fee. Nothing is free – see old paintings and stones also need to pay. However, museums in London are free!
Anyway, the Lourve Museum houses one of the world’s best art collections of European paintings, sculptures and antiques. There is always a crowd of people around the star attraction, the Mona Lisa.
Like what I’ve said in my earlier entry, Mona Lisa is not a nude hot babe painting so I don’t think it’s intriguing. My friend, Michael, somehow agreed by saying “Mona Lisa is famous because her eyes will be looking at you no matter where you stand from the painting. But I’ve decided to stand behind of the painting and it seems like she’s not looking at me anymore!”.
Another famous sculpture is Michelangelo’s The Dying Slave.
The slave doesn’t look like he’s dying to me. More of a horny slave!
The Borghese Gladiator is a poser without clothes.
Canova’s Psyche and Cupid looks nice, but the cupid is a pervert. Just look at his hand!
Venus de Milo is half-nude probably because she has no hands to wear a shirt.
And here’s a human pervert taking picture of that nude babe. I actually waited for him to leave so that I can take a picture, but he was too engrossed with the sculpture!
There are even paintings of tortured nude men.
And a painting of a lady with her sexy back!
Besides the sculptures and the paintings, the ceilings are well-decorated too.
It’s really fascinating to realize how much effort the people back then put into arts. Buildings and architectures these days are pretty simple, and plain.
As you walk along the corridors in Lourve Museum, you’ll encounter painters painting imitations of the available paintings. They are really good – their replication is almost like the original.
Oh yeah, there are weird stuffs as well. Just like this…
Looks like the lady is forcing the man to suck her boobies? Crazy huh?
Anyway, Rodin Museum is rather interesting as well. Everyone probably knows about The Thinker and how it looks like, so I’m just gonna show you his ass.
Nicely-shaped I must say.
The Rodin Museum consists of the house and the garden. The house has a collection of sculptures and paintings while the garden has sculptures scattered around.
Rodin’s The Kiss is also another prominent sculpture. Rodin must be pretty horny when he was creating it. All his sculptures are usually nude.
Out in the garden there are more amusing sculptures.
The stone and the flesh collaborating together to form a distinguished artwork.
This sculpture probably wants to have a snowball fight.
Besides the paintings and all, even the souvenirs contain nudity.
I think buying this plate and cup for your mum is a very wrong idea. You might get “Son, you naughty boy!”
Okay, I know I may sound non-appreciative but honestly – the more I see, the more bored I get. That’s why of all the available museums, I’ve only been to two. However, if you’re a hardcore art lover and you’re gonna visit every single museum in Paris, do consider getting the Paris Museum Pass. With it, you gain entry to over 60 museums. =)
Anyway, it’s interesting to know that there are individuals who appreciate and look highly on such artwork collections done centuries ago. Even though these paintings and sculptures may not be suitable for certain audience, they are proudly deemed artistic, inventive and valuable.
But if anyone in this current generation wants to emulate the legacy of such famous artists, I’d think it’s a crazy idea. Many will assume it as nonsense.
Here’s a sample scenario: Ken Picasso loves drawing and he draws every day.
And then one day, his friend, Jonathan de Vinci, visits him in his room.
Jonathan said “Hi” and sees what Ken is doing, and he saw this…
Drawings of naked ladies with huge round boobs! Feeling shocked, Jonathan loudly cried…
After listening to Jonathan de Vinci’s truthful comment, Ken Picasso must be really disappointed. And because of that incident, Ken has decided to give up drawing and therefore, his talent is totally wasted.
So in this unfortunate 21st century, when it’s about naked ladies and boobs – the next word that comes next will obviously be “pervert”. I know that, because I get that a lot. But frankly, I’m really an innocent boy!
Furthermore, it’d be even worse if anyone were to produce weird, or some may say imaginative, artworks.
Take a close look at the picture above. Can you find anything weird/crazy about it?
Look carefully, and you’ll realize that…
The snake is biting her nipple!
Artists back then are definitely imaginative, and weird at times. Don’t you agree?
