BERNINI



DID SOMEONE SAY BERNINI? HERE’S BERNINI SCULPTING A FAT CARDINAL.

HERE’S A SELF-PORTRAIT. HE’S A DAMNED SOUL IN HELL, HE BURNED HIS HAND AND SCREAMED IN FRONT OF A MIRROR FOR REFERENCE BECAUSE FUCK EVERYTHING.

OH AND LET’S TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT THOSE GRASPING ORGASM-HANDS

SPEAKING OF ORGASMS HERE’S A NUN MASTURBATING. HE PUT THAT MOTHERFUCKER IN A FUCKING CHAPEL.
