This comic was drawn by a russian child in the Middle Ages while he was bored during a lesson.
that stylization in the first panel's actually pretty interesting, with a single line and stub hands representing the whole body. He might've turned out to be a pretty good comic artist if the time had been right.
This is the first time I hear of this, and I'm already fascinated.
These four drawings are from separate pieces. Each "panel" is actually a piece of wood with a drawing on it, they are not part of the same "comic".
in old cultures there was probably things people did just for shits and giglles and we probably find these relics and think they were some important shit
i mean what happen if in 700 years people discover some retarded posts about chris chan or ron paul and think that they were gods among men
Why do you have to sexualize everything. All children wished they were some animal somewhen in their life. The difference for internet furries is that they never grew out of it and turned it into a fetish
>the person who made these goofy doodles is fucking dead
>he's been dead for a really long time
I don't know why, but that seems kinda harrowing to me, it hits closer than a skilled artist's craft outliving him. This was just shit some kid made and eventually forgot, but the attitude's preserved perfectly
>you will never hang out with Onfim
Meh he probably thought a stick would be ebough to recognize. Plus do not forget that he was carving his lines on birch peels, which was not the most confortable support to draw.
what if someone from the far future finds my drawings i did during class and makes a wiki about it
>you will never travel back in time and hang out with serfs, peons, and the common folk
>you'll never learn about what their hopes and dreams were
>you'll never see some of the ancient abandoned texts and stories lost to time, you'll never hear forgotten oral tales from people
>you'll never see ancient extinct animals
>you'll never make deep friendships with herofriends from the past
>you will never be the avatar and save britannia
This what I always wonder.
How do archaeologists know that what they found is significant and not just somebody making something to wack off to? Like the statue of Venus, that fat woman rock that is supposedly some sort of "idol" representing fertility in that cultures people thousands of years ago. Yet it was found near some river. What if it was just some chubby chaser with the capacity for stonework and he wanted something good to look at because all the hoes in his village were skinny and ugly?
I understand life was probably nothing but hard work and then you died after like 40 years usually unless you were nobility, but fuck this makes me sad.
Makin me giggle mate.
>be bored onfim
>have just finished alphabetic wood carving schoolwork , but nicolai and vlad are busy doing chores

>they have children, who they love dearly and try to raise them as best as they can
>sees some of his old friends from school now and again around town, and they reminisce about their childhoods
>armies from other lands are suddenly near their region and soldiers are needed
>onfim and most all able bodied non nobles are need, including some of onfim old and new friends
>fight invading german tribes, swedes and balts from the west and mongols from the east, defending novograd over the years
>onfim sees many a brother in arms fall to these barbarians, but novograd is safe, so is his family, so is his life
>his family waits huddled by the fire praying for there daddy, for there husband, to make it back home
>he returns from the battles each time happier to see the smiles of his children, the laughter of his son, a crackling fire and a hot meal, but mos of all his Danil
>we know only of a few drawing he made when he was not even 8 years old
Trust me, archaeologists have thought of that interpretation. There's still debate on that statue and others.
It's been a while since I was in school, but I had an archaeology professor who used to joke/talk shit about the conclusions some academics come to. She noted that if an object's use wasn't obvious, scholars would just chalk it up to religion.
They certainly do know about the possibility. That's why archeological finds that are similiar to others are such a big deal and interesting to them. Of the Venus idols you mentioned exist several examples from all kinds of different places so that we definitely can establish a cultural connection. Now the real question is what these were good for:
Were they just for decoration? Some practical purpose? Or just the Roman version of the pet rock?
"I am a beast"
>One of the drawings features a knight on a horse, stabbing someone on the ground
This is my Dad! He is a warrior. When I grow up, I want to be a warrior just like him!
>look up this image on the wiki page to see what the characters mean
>turns out it's the first 12 characters of the Cyrillic alphabet and his name
>tfw he writes his "s" backwards like preschoolers still do today
like I used to
>Weep, you girls. My penis has given you up. Now it penetrates men’s behinds. Goodbye, wondrous femininity!
>To the one defecating here. Beware of the curse. If you look down on this curse, may you have an angry Jupiter for an enemy.
>Theophilus, don’t perform oral sex on girls against the city wall like a dog
It makes me happy to see that humans never change
Yeah, it really makes you feel as if you could be bros with these people if you just could jump back in time and learn their language
>On April 19th, I made bread
Good for you, man
>VII.12.35 (Vico d’ Eumachia, small room of a possible brothel); 2146: Vibius Restitutus slept here alone and missed his darling Urbana
Checking with google, it tells me this one might be easier to decipher.
>Let everyone one in love come and see. I want to break Venus’ ribs with clubs and cripple the goddess’ loins. If she can strike through my soft chest, then why can’t I smash her head with a club?
I'll assume this is the less froth inducing way to say that for native speakers, so I'll go with it.
Thanks for you help, anon.
One more, tweaked version, because why not?
