It looks a little like it's been chewing on the "evil weed".

Ditto the sheep at rear. Mel Gibson "nutter" eyes.....

Yes Compadre, the 'realism' of Rennaissance painters inspired some weird interpretations of reality.

Kathy m'dear, that hanging behind the sheep's rear legs is its tail. That between its rear legs may be a realistic depiction of teatless udders.

What does it 'say' to you?

Who knew there was goaty art?

Did you know there are 8 species of goat, Jacob?

I do not believe all species have been represented on Goat Friday. Just sayin', is all.
