I just found this painting for sale on Etsy.com for $220. Yep, for 220 big ones, this "art" can be yours. But don't just take it from me, let's find out what the painter has to say:
"This great illustration for a tragic play is colorfully disturbing. From beautiful Helen to the piercing swastica and angry serpent, it is truly a feast for the eyes and mind. This is a large piece and is great for any collector."
I wonder, though, "any collector" of what? Swastica paraphernalia? Because I really can't see anyone else wanting this travesty hanging above their dining room table, even if it is "truly a feast for the eyes and mind". And since when was nazi Germany written into the plot-line for the story of the Trojan Horse? Did I just miss that day in 7th grade history class that explained the intrinsic connection between charming ancient Greek mythology and the most savage and extensively bloody mass-genocide of 11 million peoples in known history? And, it seems, snakes? And badly-drawn trees floating mid-air?
Color me befuddled and slightly horrified.
