      For a moment my Art History Brain failed me and I thought Orestes was actually Daniel Radcliffe (in his nude, stage role)!

      F**king brilliant. I love it. (And I speak as a furry!)

      @Twylo, hah, that's cool. There is no furry-hatin' going on here, for the record. I think the whole thing happened because I mis-read a reference to the original painting's title as "furries," and someone shopped it up as a joke.
