The pastoral scenes in toile fabric make for whimsical patterns but this decorative art form has been made funnier with deliberate graffiti.

Historically Inaccurate Decorative Arts have embellished old fashioned patterns depicting farmers harvesting wheat fields, animals in the jungle and even a scene of a man and boy at a campfire. However, there is a UFO hovering in the sky above the harvesters, some of the people are shown with animal ears or insect antennae and that boy becomes Superboy by the campfire. The monkeys also sport ties!

Toile or toile de Jouy originated in France in the 18th century and has seen a revival in our time.
