BOTANIC MIND FERTILIZER:
»Figure with meat« (1954) by Irish-born artist Francis Bacon. The figure in Bacon’s painting is based on the Pope Innocent X portrait by Diego Velázquez. In the Bacon painting the Pope is shown as a gruesome figure and placed between two bisected halves of a cow. Bacon weds the imagery of worldly decadence, power and carnal sensuality, and he contrasts those things with his own far more palpable and existential view of damnation.

Beat your mind!
