Stupid Whale Ruins 17th Century Painting

Posted: June 5th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Beached, Whale | No Comments »

What WAS a lovely, calm 17th-century Dutch painting became a goddamn nightmare after art conservators were cleaning the image and ‘unearthed’ a hidden beached whale.

Apparently dumbass whales were all the rage when the painting was created, but about one to two centuries later, people came to their wits and realized a nasty ass whale carcass doesn’t exactly make for great art. So they painted over the jerk whale. The conservation group even admitted that the whale was probably considered offensive and/or reduced value of the painting. HAH.

Check out the painting below – it looked a heckuva lot better before that goddamn whale carcass resurfaced.
