Can we have some pre-photography art where the artist had to guess at the things he hadn't seen?
Why limit the thread to pre-photography, though?
Glorious worker's paradise didn't know which color bananas were.
This is described as "medieval taxidermy" but it doesn't explain what happened to the teeth
Semi-related (more likely comedic rather than an inaccurate representation) -- Monkeys at school.
"The boa, an enormous snake that kills cows by sucking out all their milk."
"The peculiar beast attacking the man, with its bear-like body and bird wings and beak, is a crocodile, which will weep once it has eaten the man."
"The beast eats a man wherever it finds one, and then in repentance weeps and cries for the rest of its life. So if after the lady has killed and devoured him by his love, he hopes she will repent that she has let him go"
The most famous example in East Asian art of course.
Though to be fair, there WERE Lions in very Ancient China. Except they died out and this left the Chinese to work from oral history up until trade in the late BC's brought them actual examples.
>glorious anon with unlimited acces to the internet does not know plantains can be green

If you live in Miami or any other state with a pretty alright Hispanic diaspora you know which is which.
Also kek at the almost teal bunch-heads
shiny green or dark natural green is still green. if yout post laughs about a filmmaker using shiny green instead of dark green on plantains then you are a retard.
btw, i live in argentina (if thats hispanic enough for you) and i have eaten green plantains as the ones i posted, so these exist
You'd think someone would get dead babies right...
Depends on the country. Vietnam is completely Chink, but the rest is Pajeet. Ethnically most Southeast Asians originated in what is now southern China (but back then wasn't Han Chinese), but their civilization and culture is almost completely derived from India (plus Islam in Indonesia/Malaysia).
For most of the medieval period I think it's best to think of Southeast Asia as an extension of India, only really becoming distinct in the late medieval/early modern periods, except for Vietnam which should really be thought of as part of East Asia.
>though their and even the indian artistic depiction of lions has its root in persian art.
Which itself was derived from Assyria. I love these kinds of connections between cultures that hadn't even heard of each other.
The Korean man in the middle and the false idols being toppled, mostly guessing i think
In case you dont know, Francis Xavier was a missionary that travelled all over the East
