On the way to a Fleetwood Mac concert!!
Those of us not going are gonna have to stay home, cry, and live vicariously through you. :)
YOU LIVE IN PHILLY TOO?? YAY
Not in Philly! Just not going!
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.
Here is the original proposal scene of Little Shop of Horrors, and one of the only Little Shop workprint clips I’m releasing on The Little Shop Archive, since they were starting to get taken down and I don’t want to get The Archive or my entire account (and every channel but the main DisneyAshmanDemos channel) taken down.
RELATED: On Monday, at The Demo Archive, I’ll begin releasing the demos to A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, starting with the 2004 Kind Hearts and Cornets demos.
