The hidden meaning behind Beyoncé’s Instagram photo of her twins

Beyonce Pregnant

The INSIDER Summary:

  • Beyoncé Knowles and husband Jay-Z recently announced the birth of their twins, Rumi and Sir.
  • Beyoncé posted a photo of herself with the babies on her Instagram.
  • She seems to draw from religious iconography as well as some of the most famous works of art of all time.
  • This isn’t the first time she’s done something similar.

When Beyoncé Knowles gifted the world with a picture of her 1-month-old twins — Rumi and Sir (a girl and a boy, respectively) — people were entranced by her look.

How could you not be? Beyoncé, 35, had turned her gorgeous face to the sun, made holding two infants look effortless, and wore a multicolored robe designed by a genderless designer as well as a blue veil. At the time of this post, around 10 million people had liked the photo.

But the picture was not just about introducing us all to her new children. Some people couldn’t help but notice that the superstar’s pose and the photograph’s composition draws directly from religious iconography as well as some of the most famous works of art of the past millennia.
