When Zardoz and Taffy decided to procreate, little did they know just how incompatible their genotypes really were. Descending from completely unrelated haplogroups, the couple discovered the hard way how treacherous DNA can be when it combines in unexpected and unsettling ways. A terrifying painting to anyone who suspects that someone, somewhere, has taken a piss in their gene pool, this portrait of antipodal eugenics is perfect for the discriminating art lover, as well as perhaps a lovely addition to a home solarium.
