Nothing says fun like defacing one of your country’s beloved historical figures.

Even Du Fu, often called the greatest Chinese poet of all time, isn’t immune to the idle hands of creative doodlers. Let’s take a look at 18 different Du Fu makeovers by Chinese artists.

For reference, here’s the original photo of Du Fu:
