I came across this strange painting when I was reading Bataille’s book on ‘Eroticism’. This strange painting super-imposes the licentious image with a murderous one. Bataille has heavily borrowed the Philosophy of Sade. For Sade erotica is heavily invested with will to murder. The levels of permissiveness for the Philosophy of attaching the libidinal with that of homicide questions the ethical norm in a democracy but seriously engages a quodlibet for philosophy.
