Allegory of Wisdom and Strength

I love when in old texts they say things like "fa!" and "la!" and "zo!" Little two-word exclamations of... shock? Dismay? Joy? I'm not really sure.

(Paolo Veronese, Allegory of Wisdom and Strength, c. 1580)

It's inhumane to leave little babies on the floor like that. Why, someone's likely to step on it. And to think...they didn't have Pinesol back then.
