Considering how homophobic the Judeo-Christian tradition can be, I always find it interesting to observe how homoerotic its iconography often is. Check out this piece by French artist William Bouguereau. At first I thought it was a weird pietà, but questions arose. Who is the big guy? Why is the Madonna figure so tertiary? And why is the Christso uncharacteristically boyish? Turns out that this is a depiction of Adam and Eve mourning the death of Abel. Bouguereau is well known for his depictions of the nude female, but he was no slouch with the boys either.
