Earrings for Guitar-playing Art Historians
The art history student in me has to geek-out for just a minute:
It looks like El Greco painted the hands on these awesome guitar pic earrings!
I've always had a soft spot for the Greek painter, beloved and adopoted by the Spanish of the Baroque period, whose elongated style of portraying anatomy was, and still is, completely unique and eerily moving.
Obviously these earring hands aren't swiped from a painting by the master himself- the fingers look too rigid and the palette is all wrong (blah, blah, more pretentious art history ramblings...), but they are close enough for me!
What do you guys think? Creepy, or a fond reminder of these intense dudes below?
P.S. I got these earrings from Duck's Cosmic Kitchen in Decatur. They sell delicious doughnuts and delightful art earrings- my heaven in a nutshell.
