Today, we once more visit the Oils, Lithographs, & Drawings section of the Bugosi Art Gallery
(O.L.D.B.A.G.), this time to view a magnificent masterpiece (from 1530) entitled 'The Four Bugosis Of The Apocalypse'.....
It was originally painted on the ceiling of the Our Lady Of The Tadpole Convent in Bonga-Bonga, but
was cut away in 1959 due to its deterioration from the pernicious effects of nicotine........that same
year, the nuns were prohibited from smoking, with the result that there are now a lot more of them.......
I believe there is little room to doubt that the handsome horsemen are true-blooded Bugosis, but the identity of the laughing figure with the huge belly is shrouded in mystery.......
The reason I am standing in front of this behemoth of the art world, is to give some idea of its proportions...We have little fear of this one being stolen......

Dancing-pecan, is it so that you make him a MAN????? Indeed it must take some time!!!

juneshone

I will live in hopes for the regainment of our lost young one

lelabugosi

Monsewer-beaucoup-numbers........in reply to your inquisitive inquiry/enquiry. I can say this much......It was laboriously chiseled from the ceiling in little pieces, which were carefully numbered and placed in little wooden boxes lined with cotton wool.......said pieces were then put together in their corresponding places inside a special wooden frame, which our artisans called "the special wooden frame"........the whole was then smeared with essence of tadpole oil, in order to adhere the pieces......and that gave the final appearance that we see today......
I hope you have learned something new and useful......
As for Kalidoboy, it would seem that the witch we know as 'dancing-pecan' put a spell on him, which she is now trying to undo......without a lot of success, it would seem......

You never told us Lelabugs,
How did this painting make the transition
Between the ceiling and the wall?
Inquiring minds wish to know (vous sceavez, connaistre, as we say in 16th-century Franche).

Elfie

Is this the new thrilling question? - where did Kboy disappear to and how does he look now???? Any clues??

juneshone

I don't think I want him back, he doesn't look anything like KBoy I don't want a substitute I just want the real thing or to know what happened to him and where he is and whodunnit

jignut

The potion seems to be wearing off. He is beginning to look more like his old self. However,I will be returning to the store or more disposable diapers as I am running out. When I get him housebroken I will send him to you.

juneshone

poor squirty, what would he know about discriminating? Is my KBoy ready yet?

jignut

Mr.Squirty might want to look up 'connoisseur' and find the correct way to pronounce it.

www.thefreedictionary.com/connoisseur
con·nois·seur (k n-sûr, -s r) n. 1. A person with expert knowledge or training, especially in the fine arts. 2. A person of informed and discriminating taste.

lelabugosi

Oui, monsieur le-Squirt is once more disseminating misinformation, encore.........
And, Mr.Squirt........that long word is 'DIS-seminating'..........it does not begin with 'IN'.........(just so's ya know)......

Elfie

Connoisseur??? It IS a French word, at least my French teacher told me so for three years!! - and he wouldn't teach us anything wrong!!!

juneshone

thought it was a French word, since when was learning French a classical education.

patsquire

Yes, yes, octomom is back, too, like a fly that follows my scent, poor thing.

patsquire

lelabug has said to gerdje17, "...you are obviously a connoisseur of old art...."

For those of you without a classical education it is my pleasure and duty and pleasure to point out that this is some kind of a foreign word, and its pronunciation is "cone-WA-see-ay." You're welcome.

lelabugosi

Hanne-with-pipe.....'tis I, wearing my bugosigan and giving away chickens.........(I am standing there to show how large the painting is).....
Yes, double-batter.........maybe we should advertise E-Boy on E-Bay?........

Elfie

Who is it outside the picture in the right down corner???

twoclubs

Oh my. this is not good. Poor pecan. I hope you have a nappy bin. Lela ya think the E Boy? Oh No!

jignut

I had to use the cape for a diaper. Evidently he is NOT potty trained!

lelabugosi

Good idea....he could be 'Elephant Boy'........."I am a boy, not a Monthterrrr!"..............

twoclubs

EEEEEEK! I have returned from dancing-pecan's place! I am horrified. I suggested KBoy's cape be found and placed on him. I could not watch so I came back here.

lelabugosi

dancing-pecan......you must keep trying!....Kaleidoboy is (was) a shining example to the youth of today.....

jignut

I thought the liver spots on his head added a nice touch.......makes him look mature.

juneshone

thank you jignut, he looks er..........interesting. Do keep trying, the nose isn't qite right

jignut

K-Boy restored.....sort of. http://www.jigidi.com/created.php?id=UOJ41NR6

juneshone

no there isn't another one, I need this one. Are you saying he went down the plughole? Somebody has questions to answer, where did my KBoy, now there is nay boy, where did my KBoy go?

gemstone

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Another KBoy??? Where are my pills???

lelabugosi

gerdje-with-a-number.....I am glad you like this beautiful painting - you are obviously a connoisseur of old art.......Yes, that face is similar to Robbiel's........
was-shining.......Maybe there is another Kaleidoboy in the world.........then again.......

juneshone

seems to me there is only War and Death left, Woe, woe, misery and woe. Aw c'mon woman lighten up. Maybe he is off cavorting with ChurchLady (she ain't no lady, just his type) worse than that where is KBoy, did he fade away to a minus age in the end? I want compensation, I know my rights. I furnished that room especially for him with, him being Batman on the walls and duvet covers. who am I going to get to rent that out to?

the painting is sooooo phantastic that it does not matter that I understand nothing
of the comments. just this : I am sure that " Robbiel " is the corner person or at least her
grand-grand 6 times grandmother.

lelabugosi

I'm not really sure, Hanne-piping........they just have the characteristic Bugosi shiny head, and elegant features.......
Juneee......one of the horses is called pestilence.......I wonder where the Squirt is?..........

Elfie

Actually, Lela, whom do you think they resemble especially???? They might be playing something - perhaps the kind of game that Harry Potter took up a lot of years later.....!! The sympathetic "corner person" might have come to watch it!!!

juneshone

one of the horses is called famine, that reminds me I am very hungry must be brunch time

octomom

Love was blind.

juneshone

But Octy we need a villain that we love to hate, and even you found him attractive once, well a few times actually

octomom

Yes, rotten apples abound...

lelabugosi

"Mr"Le-Squirty-Pee........I am astounded, amazed, and amused by the fact that your 493-year-old granddaughter drew this masterpiece with crayons and stuck it on your refrigerator.........I know some people have very large refrigerators, but please tell me......HOW BIG IS YOURS?.........(the refrigirator).....
octo-sexto-momma and pretty-vixen........The bad apple allows us to fully appreciate the goodness found on the rest of the tree........

belaminx

With suckers dipped in acid Octo ;)

octomom

Word's been going around that you have all welcomed back the Pee-Squirt with open arms. I do hope those "arms" include at least one AR-15....

patsquire

I stand by my assessment that if a microscopic examination were done of the *original* work of art (not this photoshopped photographic bastardization thereof) it would be revealed that the artist chose, as her medium to work in, the vivid colors and greasy texture of . . . . crayon!

lelabugosi

It would appear to be some sort of a game - maybe with a ball that we cannot see - because the patron/clown/cherub resembles the goalkeeper, gleefully waiting to catch the ball.........

Robbiel

Well I really like this painting no matter who the artist is. It has such a vibrant feel about it and I think the Cherub in the bottom right hand corner brings a bit of "class" to the scene. Obviously gem mis-laid her glasses!!

lelabugosi

Have a chicken, precious-pebble.......
Yes, Hanne-with-pipe.......Isn't it funny how these 16th. century Bugosis looked vaguely similar to the present-day Bugosis?.....

Elfie

It's a wonderful picture indeed, so expressive and narrative!! I think that "Ghost riders in the sky" was inspired by this!!!

gemstone

These guys always scared me. And I didn't like their horses much either! Perhaps I'll just check out the clown-in-the-corner...but come to think of it I hate clowns. Wonder if I can get a refund on my admission fee...is there a popcorn stand around here?

lelabugosi

Thank you, no.6-at-the-racetrack........I am glad to show it to someone like yourself who knows a true MASTERPIECE when she sees it........

monza006

I am overawed and speechless by the ancienticity of this - thank you for allowing me an opportunity for viewing it. :~)

lelabugosi

Thank you david-many-numbers.........that would explain the great belly of the POOTer!.........Also, as well, what sprang to my mind was the spanish pronunciation of the word, which would mean 'Whore or bitch'..........(just sayin')......
Mr.Still-squirty.........This MASTERPIECE is 483 years old........you say your grand-daughter 'drew' it in 5th grade art class......As I have no idea of the ages of 5th. graders, I have guessed 10 year-olds, which would make her 493 years old..........anyway, whatever the age, it can be added to the age of the GENUINE MASTERPIECE........so there!...........

patsquire

David mile-and-more, one wonders if you have ever been exposed to the Alabama usage of the word in your acronym. I was surprised some years ago to hear my friend's young elementary school student relate a hilarious event from his classroom that day. It seems he did something funny and, "Miss Thompson laughed so hard she pooted!" There was no need for a translation; I knew exactly what he meant.

lelabug, dear heart, I am here only to report the facts, the truth, the actual state of affairs in the face of your outrageous flights of fancy. No my granddaughter is not 493 years old, and neither is this bogus "masterpiece" you're fobbing off on unsuspecting Bugosilanders.

(My goodness, it really does make me wonder how much of this kind of thing you've been getting away with in my absence.)

david06520

Lelabugs dearie, we learned in art history class that those small figures painted in the corners of these Rennnaissssssance paintings represent the people who paid for the painting to be done, or at least provided a steady flow of Tadpole Wine to the artist's studio. Collectively they were known as Patrons Of Oilpainted Triumphs, or POOTers for short.

lelabugosi

And I, sir, have rejoined your rejoinder with a lengthy explanation of the TRUE situation in Bugosiland!......
I suppose now you are going to tell us that your granddaughter is 493 years old!.......HMPH!......

lelabugosi

Yes double-batter, it is indeed Museum Day (MUD), and I was giving out the chickens (99 actually, and one for myself)........
In those days the Bugosis were renowned for their shiny heads....In fact a term was coined for them - "shi-heads"- though with the passage of time the letter 't' was added to the first word (no doubt for ease of pronunciation) and all Bugosis were amicably known as "shi(t)-heads".........Whenever I am called that (often by children) my chest swells and I feel proud to be a member of such a respected family.......

patsquire

My lengthy and stirring rejoinder to lelabug's shocking announcement that there is no longer a Parliament in Bugosiland appears on yesterday's puzzle.

As for this supposed masterpiece, my granddaughter drew this picture in 5th grade art class. Apparently lelabug sneaked into my kitchen where it is taped to the refrigerator and photographed it. The rest, as they say, is Photoshop history.

twoclubs

Oh it must be Museum Day again. I heard they were giving out free chickens to the first 100 people in line. You must have gotten up quite early Lela. Surprised it didn't require 400 pieces of jigidi cuttings to accommodate the size. My those apoplexy horsey riders have illuminated heads. Hope they don't outshine yours' Lela.

lelabugosi

Yes, bookie-person....it featured in our bugosilogue a while back -
