Artwork of the month: Temptation.

I am not the kind of man to fall for religious oil paintings, albeit this painting is a masterwork.  In fact almost everything Bouguereau painted was a masterwork.  The subject, well just make up your own mind.  I like to think mom is giving her "knowledge" not temptation.  
Go to my temple and see this painting anytime you want.

William-Adolphe Bouguereau
French, 1825-1905
"Temptation"
1880, oil on canvas


A religion that takes no account of practical affairs and does not help to solve them is no religion.
-Mahatma Gandhi
