The Biting Pear of Salamanca by ursulav The Biting Pear of Salamanca by ursulav
A popular tourist attraction of the region, the biting pear lives off low-flying birds, hand-outs, and the occasional unwary sightseer.

----
Don't look at me. I was reading up on pop surrealism before bed, and this is the sort of thing that happens. Even for me, that's a little disturbing.

Also, I may have an unhealthy obsession with pears. This is particularly odd because I haven't eaten a pear in years.

NOTE FOR 4CHAN AND ALL THE REST:

Yes. I know. LOL WUT. Yes, yes. I'm aware. Really, I don't mind that y'all are havin' fun with the image*, the internet is a very silly place and all, but if you could make an effort to include a link to the original when you're posting it, I'd be really grateful.

You can buy prints of the Pear at Topatoco!

Thanks!


*As long as it's noncommercial and nobody's making money on lolwut merchandise, of course.

So this is the legendary Biting Pear of Salamanca. At first I didn't know what was the praise about, so I browsed it...
Now I understand all of the praise.

Nice work btw, i really like the fact that from drawing things like Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, art can now be gigantic pears and cats in famous paintings lol (and thus, classical art memes were born). :F2U: The biting pear
