25 Strangest Gifts Ever Given

#12 – Rape-Themed Painting

Believe it or not, but giving a rape-themed painting was a completely normal thing in the 17th century. However, these days it’s completely abnormal to give someone a rape-themed painting as a wedding gift. And thank God no bride today received such a painting with a sensitive theme.

But, if you lived in Italy in the 17th century and you were a bride-to-be, you would probably get showered with a couple of rape-themed paintings because that was a tradition back in those crazy times.
