Nothing creepy about this, now is there?
You are looking at an image of the official portrait of the Danish Royal Family by Thomas Kluges. And it’s really, really weird.
GAWKER described the painting the best, and I will not even try to match it. Caity Weaver wrote:
The painting depicts three generations of royals, all eerily aglow as if they have just feasted on a village of Thomas Kinkade’s flaming houses, dressed in various articles of clothing proportionate to their size. Its members engage in their various favorite pastimes: holding onto a baby’s leg; constructing a tower to heaven as an affront to God; using black magic to animate a toy horse, causing it to prance and lurch with queer, jerky motions. In the foreground, an 8-year-old bores into the souls of those Beyond The Fourth Wall. Behind the group: the ruins of the city they have destroyed.
The ghastly image is terrifying. Though the official description of the painting says the Royals are featured ‘their own universe’ in plain clothing, it looks more like the cover of a bad horror flick.
The only thing missing on the girl in the left hand corner is blood dripping from her mouth. The boy directly in the middle appears to be a harbinger to an OMEN sequel, and faces on the grown men appear to be hiding a undesirable scowl of evil.
Can anyone really disagree with those hypotheses on the art?
And here is a must read for a chuckle: Check out the comments section on official Kluge painting website. They are formulating a hypothesis that it appears the Danish royals are feasting on the blood of innocent peasants.
