After engaging in over 20 years of Santa-styled self-portraiture, photographer Ed Wheeler decided to take things one step further with his 'Santa Classics' exhibit. Wheeler takes a trip back in time, stepping into some seriously famous art masterpieces dressed as the jolly gift-giver.
Wheeler was inspired by iconic images such as Sandro Botticelli' 'The Birth of Venus,' Henri Rousseau's 'The Dream' and Caravaggio's 'Supper at Emmaus.' The end result is a hilarious homage to the original works of art that can be enjoyed regardless of whether you've been naughty or nice.
The Philadelphia Museum of Art has published the images in a series of holiday cards, which would make a perfect card for any art enthusiasts with a sense of humor. The exhibit takes place on the first Friday of December at Bahdeebahdu and continues until the 21st.
