John Bull has a bag hanging from his shoulder labeled "Turkish Revenues" containing "Turkish Bonds" and "Turkish Loans", and in his pocket is a paper labeled "Suez Canal Stock", at his feet is a cashbox labeled "£.s.d."; he is worried that if he interfers with Turkish affairs, it might jeoparize their financial relations.

Considering these are very old, I’m surprised there are paintings of women kissing, embracing and brandishing swords. Quite epic to be honest.

I think the difference is that Hetalia is more about the characters who are more just a bag of stereotypes based on their name sake country
National personification are a lot more political, pretty much every post here has something to do with politics and were made during eras where concepts of nation states were far more popular and taken seriously

Late WWI propaganda posters, judging by the fact that Italy joined the Entente by this point, kek.
There were ones with France and Britain too, but I downloaded only Italy and Russia since I liked them the most. That was a long time ago, I may go look for the rest.

Very nice thread idea OP. Picrel is Northern, Central and Southern Italies.>>171077
I'm so sad Ne Ne Papa pretty much killed the country-tan concept on the internet for the time being. I'd really like to see more varied, modern takes on national personifications that aren't boomer political cartoons.
Say what you want but nee nee papa is just silly and cute and I welcome it. It's not accurate sure, but it's still cute.>>171560

Forgot to ask if 21th century art is actually ok to post, so here's a more traditional-looking Britannia>>171567
Oh sure, stuff like countryhumans, scandinavia and the world etc. still exist, but that doesn't stop people from going "have people learned nothing from Hetalia???", perpetuating the idea that making original humanized county art is inherently cringe and evil.
