The Renaissance is regarded as the rebirth of an era: art, philosophy and humanism prevailed and people were like "hell yeah fuck the Middle Ages it's time to get intellectual up in here."
It seemed like society was beginning to blossom into the Modern Age, with innovators like Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo becoming the first of the "Renaissance Man", and people started thinking maybe shitting in the middle of the street is kind of unsanitary.
But out of all the advances during this cultural movement, they couldn't seem to figure out how the hell babies look. It's like some sort of sacred pact was made that all babes painted during the renaissance would be horrible flesh monsters that look like they're fed up with all this goddamn bullshit.
"Get the fuck outta my face, mom."
To this day, we can only assume that all the babies from that era were shriveled old men begging for the sweet release of death, and we're really glad uglyrenaissancebabies is here to remind us all of what a weird fucking time it was.
