Tumblr Hilariously Documents Ugly Babies In Renaissance Paintings Is The Funniest Thing Ever

I need to cleanse my eyes with Holy water.

The Renaissance era means various things to different people. To some, it is a source of rich traditional memories, and to some, it is a form of memes. Most of these renaissance paintings depict the birth of baby Jesus, which is a very important event in religious history. However, painters and artists really didn’t do justice to him. Not to mean any disrespect, but some of these paintings are hilarious. Did the artists even know what a baby looks like? Had they ever even seen one?

The Internet is a glorious place. With some browsing, we found out that there is a whole Tumble account named “Ugly Renaissance Babies” and you can probably tell what it’s about, judging by the name. This content is just what we needed. If you need a laugh or two, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. Scroll  down below and enjoy these ugly, unrealistic babies:
