In the book, which is fascinating BTW, there was a whole section about how the Romans wrote such filthy poems and graffiti. The above phrase was supposed to be the filthiest thing ever written in Latin, so bad that the poem it is from was not translated until the 20th century.
I thought it was be fun to make a small needlework piece with this embroidered on it. I'm sure this is not the first time someone thought of it, but it amused me :D
I like the little blue flowers so far. It makes it look delicate and sweet vs the violent and offensive statement (which I don't even want to translate because it is so bad).
