the Met @NYC, big exhibit on Michelangelos work
& Nunchucks master!
Michelangelo’s original sketches
Kleopatra of Egypt, check out the snake wrapped around her just as she used it for suicide after Mark Antony’s death.
baby Arnold Shwarzeneger
amazing details, this parchment is over 500 y. old!!
sausage party. Michelangelo’s female figures are very weird, very manly. Almost like he used male models and added boobs to them.
Gaius Julius fucking Caesar. The Original Gangster. This bust is amazing. You can feel the calculating intellect of JC flowing from his eyes.
Caesar’s cuirass has a Medusa and a Roman eagle. How badass is that!!
“All Gaul is divided into 3 parts…”
Caracalla, the douchebag son of Septimius Severus
Caracalla giving JC a douche face.
Thetis bringing weapons to her son Akilles, dragged on a seashell by a sea nymph.This is after Patroklus steals Akilles armor and goes to fight the Trojans. Hektor kills Patroklus thinking it was Akilles. Thetis is sad as she knows Akilles will be killed in Troy.
Amazing details of greaves, sword, hoplon, Korinthian helmet. All made by Hefaestos or as the Romans called him, Vulcan.
Korinthian hoplite helmet
Michelangelo’s treatment of female form is really weird, and has been bugging me since Ive seen the exhibit. His many works show women as basically men with boobs attached on top of male chest muscles. Really creepy stuff..
“Venus”.. yeah right! Thats a man baby!
This blog has an interesting take on all this.
Working hard to finish the illustrations and coloring for this new kids book. Its aimed at 3-7 year olds who want to learn the English alphabet. Should be ready in 2-3 months (I hope!). Currently looking for a publishing company that would publish this. I can publish it via Blurb, but Blurb is a bit too expensive. If anyone has any publishing ideas, shoot me an email.
