'O Uommibatto': How the Pre-Raphaelites Became Obsessed with the Wombat

quote [ Angus Trumble on Dante Gabriel Rossetti and company's curious but longstanding fixation with the furry oddity that is the wombat โ€” that 'most beautiful of God's creatures' which found its way into their poems, their art, and even, for a brief while, their homes. ]

Like Mortal Kombat, but fuckin these wombats got you dizzy
