caligula had anime eyes

wait romans painted their marble sculptures

it looks like a cheap theme park ride mascot


here’s a statue of Augustus

and here’s a reproduction of the statue with the colors restored 

i honestly think that what we consider the height of sculpture in all of Western civilization being essentially the leftover templates of gaudy pieces of theme park shit to be evidence of the potential merit of found art

"I tried coloring it and then I ruined it"

And you know what the funniest part is? The paint didn’t just wear off over time. A bunch of asshole British historians back in the Victorian era actually went around scrubbing the remaining paint off of Greek and Roman statues - often destroying the fine details of the carving in the process - because the bright colours didn’t fit the dignified image they wished to present of the the cultures they claimed to be heirs to. This process also removed visible evidence of the fact that at least some of the statues thus stripped of paint had originally depicted non-white individuals.

Whenever you look at a Roman statue with a bare marble face, you’re looking at the face of imperialist historical revisionism.

(The missing noses on a lot of Egyptian statues are a similar deal. It’s not that the ancient Egyptians made statues with strangely fragile noses. Many Victorian archaeologists had a habit of chipping the noses off of the statues they brought back, then claiming that they’d found them that way - because with the noses intact, it was too obvious that the statues were meant to depict individuals of black African descent.)

There’s a lot of good academic discussion about chromophobia in modern Western aesthetics and how it links to colonialism.


#ChooseKindness #BeInspired I wrote something on Twitter/ tumblr the other day about our choose kindness episode, and it kind of goes with the theme:

I am currently writing this today not only because of the theme of our episode today (bullying/ accepting yourself) but also because it is a theme and lesson that is very important to me.

We all have flaws, whether we choose to accept them or not. It is so upsetting that people still choose to tear someone apart because of their flaws, when really that’s what makes that person most human. Even the most popular/ seemingly perfect person has flaws. You do not know what someone has been through, what may have affected them, and what they write in their diary about. “Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me” is a saying that has always made me annoyed. Calling someone stupid when they can’t understand something will stick with them. And calling yourself stupid or bringing yourself down is not good either. Literally everyone has flaws, even Beyonce.

I don’t expect you to embrace all of your flaws in this second, but slowing learning to love yourself and all your flaws can help. I know I’m still working on that. :)

The huge amount of pressure on young girls to let their boyfriends get away with everything and not to stand up for themselves, lest they stop being a ‘chill girlfriend’ and instead become a horrible, controlling harpy is such bullshit.

Stop teaching young girls that demanding to be treated with respect and courtesy makes them shrill, over-emotional, or unworthy of listening to.
