Caracalla, the elder son of Septimius Severus, is best known for having his brother Geta murdered, giving Roman citizenship to every free person empire-wide, and building the second-biggest bath in Rome.
Unlike the philosopher-emperors that preceded him, Caracalla’s portraiture depicts a gruff, scowling individual sporting a soldier’s haircut. This aesthetic led us to create “Disapproving Caracalla,” a meme-like rendering that would have been popular - if the Romans had social media anonymity.
It depicts Caracalla’s typical look of condescending disapproval, except here it’s not just a look, he actually disapproves. It doesn’t matter what it is: adorable puppy, cute kitten, or cherubic baby...Disapproving Caracalla is having none of it.
