Fine Art: Zombiscape

The horrific nature of zombie has not made them a popular subject for fine art, but they do sometimes appear as symbols of decay and collapse in society. In this painting by Flemish Romantic artist Pils Laroof, we see the citizens of a Classical period co-mingling with the undead. The serenity of the scene is disturbed by the punctuations of the unwelcome undead. Clearly something is rotten.
