Drawing (537) from THE BASIS OF MAKE-UP

"Another traffic accident: two resurrected humans from Luca Signorelli's The Resurrection of the Flesh in the Cathedral Santa Maria in Orvieto next to a burning car wreck. One still wears the mask of a skull, while the other already looks to the ground, which he has already become. At the same time, he saucily raises his behind. Signorelli knew what flesh is good for, as a model for an individual rebuff, too. On the bars protruding from the small architectural flower rosettes, three pornographic sculptures made of stone, found in Romanic cathedrals in France from the 11th and 12th centuries. Genitals in hardcore format are the stars of this depiction. If one redeemed the church from its good intentions, it always had something to offer. In contrast, the ordinary person is obvious nothingness, whose commodity character gets stuck in his throat. In the background, the sketch of a column base in the Maulbronn abbey-nothing but grotesque faces and harmless stylizations, just softcore and not very edifying."
