It’s said that history repeats itself, and these images on Imgur show that. Called “Accidental Renaissance”, the pictures show what a crazy year 2016 was from Hillary’s Heartbreak, to Vladimir Putin looking at the corpse of murdered ambassador, Andrey Karlov.

The “Accidental Renaissance” title comes from an image from New Year 2016, which saw a series of late-night revellers laying on the streets of Manchester in poses resemblant of renaissance-era paintings.

It’s not all images of doom and gloom, though - Redditors have included Accidental Renaissance highlights such as “Pizza Night With The Woofers”, “The Lost Supper”, and “Cricket in Kashmir” amongst many others.

A Game Of Buzkashi

XisanXbeforeitsakiss Report

Ronja Rövardotter 2 years ago

Buzkashi is an old game in which men are riding horses and play with an headless calf or goat carcass instead of a ball. The aim is to place the carcass in a goal. It is traditional Central Asian sport. It is traditional f. ex. in Afganistan but it was banned by Taliban because it was considered immoral. After the Taliban regime was ousted, the game resumed being played. I admit it is an interesting part of culture. But I find it quite cruel and I certainly wouldn´t be comfortable to watch it. Especially it hurts me when I see an animal suffer.
