Cat image: http://www.dsa.unipr.it/giavelli/GATTI_arte/david.jpg
Okay, so this doesn't really fit into my interest in spreading the awesomeness and wonder of art, but in a way it does. If the original painting interested someone enough, now we have this wonderfully silly and kind of awesome cat version. Pure fun on the left (not to shabbily rendered either), art on the right. Of course the original subject is not funny, rather incredibly serious. The cat painting is rather rude in a way, absurd, yet out of a page of cat paintings, I giggled the most.
