Legend has it that the champagne glass is a mold of a French aristocrat’s breasts. The shape of the champagne glass (not the champagne flute) may be from the breasts of Marie Antoinette (wife of Louis XVI), Josephine de Beauharnais (wife of Napoleon Bonaparte), or Madame de Pompadour (mistress of King Louis XV).
The word “galaxy” comes from the Greek word “gala” which means “milk”. In Greek mythology, the Milky Way was created when a spray of milk came out of Hera’s breast (wife of Zeus) as she was breastfeeding Hercules (one of Zeus’ many illegitimate sons).
During ancient Roman times, it is said that a daughter (Pero) secretly breastfed her elderly father (Cimon) while he was in jail. He was imprisoned and sentenced to die by starvation but Pero's breast milk sustained him. Later, Cimon was released because of Pero's unconditional love & devotion towards her father. This act of "Roman Charity" has been represented in 16th and 17th century paintings, sculptures, and engravings.
Probably the most often depicted breastfeeding-mother is the Virgin Mary breastfeeding baby Jesus. In fact, the oldest known image of the Virgin Mary is found in the Catacomb of Priscilla in Rome.
In addition to breastfeeding baby Jesus, the Virgin Mary has been depicted in other paintings where she is squirting milk out of her breasts.
In modern times, breast milk is used to sooth/cure sore and cracked nipples. However, in days of old, breast milk was used to cure various ailments including ear infections, eye infections, and minor cuts and scrapes. (Those cures also apply to modern times, as well. I, myself, used it on my son when he had a plugged tear duct as an infant, and it worked.)
Breast milk has antibodies so it is very possible that the antibodies cure illnesses by preventing the growth of germs & bacteria. Some doctors are switching from antibiotic eye drops to Mother's Milk drops to treat infections.
If breast milk can soothe/cure a cracked nipple, it is highly possible that it can facilitate the healing of minor cuts and scrapes too.
There are a few references of the Virgin Mary squirting breast milk into people’s eyes to cure them of conjunctivitis (an eye infection commonly called "pink eye"). In some rural regions of Africa, breast milk is used to treat snake bites.
