Caravaggio's Bacchus

The Orange Furball Stalking Great Art

Suddenly fat cats are everywhere. They're hissing at the have-nots, kneading dubious trade deals, and clawing democratic governments to their will.

A much cuter fat cat, however, is causing pandemonium of another kind. His name is Zarathustra and he features prominently — or rather, he steals the show! — in the 'fat cat' art of Russian artist Svetlana Petrova, who lovingly integrates the orange furball into old masterworks through extensive digital manipulation.

Just look at the results. Zarathustra gets a big wet one in Klimt's The Kiss; leads the people in Delacroix's 1830 depiction of the French Revolution; melts alongside clocks in Dalís The Persistence of Memory; and, oh look, Caravaggio's Bacchus has a fellow reveler.

If there is a better application of the Digital Age, we can't think of it.
