History of Contortion

All NSFW content is hidden. Click here if you want to unhide it. Contortionism is an extremely remarkable art form but has it always been as extreme as the examples we can find today on the Internet?

Here I tried to answer the question "How far people could bend backwards throughout the mankind's history?"

I chose backbends for the simple reason that frontbends and splits seem to be even more obscure, I literally couldn't find a single depiction of splits or frontbends in the ancient art anywhere... It almost seems like people learned how to sit in the split only after photography was invented XD

Anyway, I tried to use the most flexible examples I could find for each time period, but of course many achievements in the world have never been documented, so...
