This incredible print entitled "The World Upside Down" by Nelli done in Venice sometime in the XVI Century, precedes deconstructionism with almost half a millennium, and it's doing it in a pure visual medium as well! The pig (boar) is here as well, chasing along with 3 fellow rabbits some hunting dogs, but more interesting, I think, is the donkey who is baptizing a man. So what we look at is quite a courageous and politically engaged piece of art work! This image, and the one bellow, argue that the images of Pigs and Donkeys have a long lasting tradition in European critical artistic discourse!
