COLLECTION OF YORUBA ORISHAS

Not to diss on Northern European mythologies but can we seriously have some fuckin’ recognition that there are religions and mythologies that are not Greek? Why the fuck did I learn about the Greeks 6 times but we never fucking talked about Africa or Central America or South America or Asia or even really the mythologies and beliefs of Native peoples of North America? 

We know why.

The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…

YES.

Girls don’t let anyone tell you loving yourself is vanity.

“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.” ― John Berger, Ways of Seeing

"well why is it even important to mention aromantic and asexual people all the time not everyone gets mention-"

because our entire culture is so deeply steeped in sex and romance and there’s millions of people who want none of one or the other or both and they need to be recognized and mentioned instead of made to feel like they don’t fit and they’re broken

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

This month I made patterns from Youtube videos of flying animals! I marked specific points on the wing throughout one wingbeat, and drew in curves that fit all 15 points in the wingbeat loop.
