Ugly Renaissance Babies

The title says it all. Pages 3 and 5 are the best IMHO.

However when I was in the Uffizi many years ago, about six months after I started doing daycare in fact, I too thought 'God, these painters, didn't they ever *look* at a baby? They're all shrunken adults.' Then I went out into the street and looked at the Florentine babies. They looked like shrunken adults. Drop-dead beautiful adults start as really weird babies; and really cute babies wind up looking (and acting) like our mayor.
