As regular readers will know, we are very serious about #art here at Flavorwire. And being as we’re a serious #art blog, there’s no way we’d dream of posting a series of photos of a fat ginger cat superimposed on a series of famous paintings, because that would be — what? Oh. OK, yes, fair enough, it’d be hilarious. These images are the work of Russian artist Svetlana Petrova, and there’s actually a rather lovely story behind them — as per Rocket News 24, where we found them, Petrova started taking the pictures after the death of her mother left her in a depression that rendered her unable to create her own art. AND the cat’s name is Zarathustra. Huzzah.
