Okay, we're having a bunch of duplicated tropes here.
Art Imitates Art
is about how certain artistic poses or scenes have become so symbolic that they are used often in popular works as references or parody. Many of these have their own page as subtropes, such as Abbey Road Crossing
, "Last Supper" Steal
, and Pietà Plagiarism
. Basically, the page enumerates a few of the subtropes and then gives a few examples that don't belong in a subtrope (although arguably, any scene iconic enough to have its well-known references should
have a subtrope page for it).
The first problem: numerous examples on Art Imitates Art
actually belong on the subtropes, and are duplicated on the parent.
Second problem: Picture Pastiche
is the exact same thing
, and also enumerates a few known subtropes and gives more examples of the same. Note that a number of these scenes are also on the Stock Poses
index, although they shouldn't be: a stock pose like Death Glare
or Ready for Lovemaking
is not the same as a stock scene
such as The VJ Day Kiss
My suggestion: merge Picture Pastiche
into Art Imitates Art
and use that page as the index for relevant subtropes.
Special trousers. Very heroic.
