Perhaps you’ve already seen the new official portrait of Denmark’s royal family, painted by Thomas Kluge. If not, look here. Be warned — it’s strange.
Here are some samples of what people have been saying about the painting:
We’re not saying “All Hail the Satanic overlords,” but we’re also not not saying that. — The new Danish royal family portrait is super creepy
Is the Danish royal family starring in a sequel to The Omen? — Danish royal family portrait looks like a horror movie poster
The sort of painting that would look more at home as the inside front cover of a V.C. Andrews paperback than hanging on a palace wall. — This painting of the Danish royal family will steal your soul
Behind the crowded composition, with its gaggle of creepy toddlers… a floating Romantic cityscape suggests that the Danish royal family holds the key to time travel. — New Danish royal portrait is a disaster
The painting depicts three generations of royals, all eerily aglow… Behind the group: the ruins of the city they have destroyed. — Denmark ruled by demon family.
I know the Danish royals are into modern art, but I’m surprised that they decided to share this menacing family portrait with the public. What do you think?
