Featuring ‘This is it”

 

‘This is it,’ she

whispers. ‘This is where I

shed my fears.’ Spreading her

arms out, she closes her eyes.

‘This is where I disappear.’

A história de Artemisia Gentileschi, a pintora violentada que se vingou fazendo arte feminista no século 17 | VIVIMETALIUN

Artemisia Gentileschi foi uma artista de talento excepcional

Allen Phillips/Wadsworth Atheneum

“Trancou o quarto a chave e depois me jogou sobre a cama, imobilizando-me com uma mão sobre meu peito e colocando um dos joelhos entre minhas coxas para que não pudesse fechá-las. E levantou minhas roupas, algo que lhe deu muito trabalho. Pôs um pano em minha boca para que não gritasse. Eu arranhei seu rosto e arranquei seus cabelos.”

Not translation of above but continuation of part of the post

This is the account of a rape four centuries ago, more specifically in the year 1611. The victim was the Italian Artemisia Gentileschi, an artist whose talent can be proved by the fact that she was the first woman accepted in the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, Italy, the same one where Michelangelo studied.

Elephant Seal milk is the richest milk in the mammalian world, which it needs to be since elephant seals grow so rapidly. This cheeky seagull pecked this little pup causing him to unlatch during nursing, releasing milk, which the seagull tried to drink!
