Today We, Zarathustra the Cat, reveal to the world the true version of the famous fresco by Giulio Romano in the Chamber of the Sun and the Moon in Palazzo Te, Mantova, Italy:
Palazzo Te, built and decorated between 1525 and 1535, is the masterpiece of Giulio Romano, who conceived it as a place for idleness of the prince, Federico II Gonzaga. On the fresco in the Chamber of the Sun and the Moon, the chariot of the Moon is rising and the chariot of the Ginger Sun is driving away, so the Sun, represented by the shining cat, could take a noble nap. The perspective shows the course of the stars and the eternal alternation of darkness and light, of nap and consumption of shrimps and tuna. Seen from beneath with all his toe beans, the sun-cat watches attentively if there is any more food to munch on the evening earth:
Please have look at the commonly known version of the masterpiece in Palazzo Te:
If you look straight up the human Sun’s tunic, you’ll see his bottom-crack and genitals exposed. Please ask yourself: what would you prefer to see over your head, Apollo’s balls, or the cat’s pink toe beans?
We hope you would make the right choice!
Our humble assistant did, and now the true version of the fresco can be found over the heads in Our place:
And the closer look:
Come and see it live!
Thus speaks Zarathustra the Cat
