Truth Coming Out of Her Well to Shame Mankind, 1896 by Jean-Léon Gérôme

I’ve been thinking a lot about it and this is literally the best title of anything

so I guess it was some ancient Greek who said “truth lives at the bottom of a well” and I don’t know what he meant or why it stuck, but I’ve seen a lot of 19th-century references to it (because people always love showing off how much they know about stuff)

but I like this because imagine how fucking pissed off you would be if you lived at the bottom of a well in the first place, but then you had to climb all the way out of it somehow because humans were such unbelievable assholes that you were forced to yell at them in person

“I CAME OUT OF THE WELL BECAUSE YOU NEED TO STOP”
