wtf_1
14th – 15th century. Heh, I love how the title of this is ‘Allegory of the Five Obstinate Monsters’ and it is some sort of warning about mental disturbances… but when I went to save the file from the website selling it, it was titled ‘WTF.’

allegory-2
From 1480, ‘Allegory of the Transendence of Life.’

    It really is pure concentrated horror.
