Painted Accessories, really?

A hand painted George Condo Hermes Birkin bag is problematic on several levels.  Thanks to Hrag Vartanian's post for Hyperallergic, we can contextualize Condo's work into the traditional composition of The Judgement of Paris with the Kardashin sisters standing in for Hera, Athena and Aphrodite....yikes

Kim Kardashian Instagrammed her Condo-painted Berkin late yesterday with the following hashtag-filled caption: "#HandPaintedGeorgeCondo #HermesBirkin #OneofOne #ChristmasPresentFromYeezy" (via Kim Kardasian's Instagram)
