Has Santa Been on a Bender?

Hohoho! I found this image today while studying for my art history exam. It's really Aeneas, Anchises, and Ascanius Fleeing Troy by Bernini, 1619. I was struck by how much it looked like our beloved Saint Nick getting evicted for imbibing too much eggnog. Put the clock back on the mantlepiece, Kris, there's a good elf.
