Yes, there is an actual Tumblr page dedicated to ugly Renaissance babies and its the best thing you’ll see all day.

Ugly Renaissance Babies is skimming art history so we don’t have to, providing the internet with constant amusement in the form of creepy looking infants in renowned Renaissance paintings.

The weirdness of the kids depicted almost makes you question whether some of the artists had ever seen a baby at all! There is a baby Jesus that has so many neck wrinkles, you will question if he isn’t Benjamin Button come a few centuries early.

Actually, muscles are a common theme on the page, which also features rock hard abs on a newborn because clearly, as we’ve always suspected, six-packs are something you are blessed with at birth.

It’s probably also worth noting that the original Christmas baby is reaching down his mom’s top so that’s not weird at all…

Then there are the classic contortionist babies that blow the mind with their impossible body positions.

What is happening?!

This page is awesome because it takes quite serious paintings from the art historical canon and puts their fun side on display. We can’t get enough.
