Have you ever gone to the museum just to chill out and get some knowledge, and then got distracted by some really ugly baby? Well, go no further: Vox answers why these medieval babies look like awkward, tiny men.
What a beautiful day at the museum...wait...
WHAT IS HAPPENING?!
WHO ARE THESE MIDDLE-AGED MEN STUCK IN BABY BODIES?
WHO ARE YOU?!
Everyone remain calm. There's a reason behind these balding babies, and it's called homunculus, or "little man."
At the time, philosophers thought that Christ was born like a "perfectly formed and unchanged" man, aka he came out looking like a grown-ass dude.
But why did these babies stop being ugly? Thank god for the full transition to the Renaissance.
