Mad-scientist wannabe

Blog of Monstrous-hourglass, mad-scientist in training. I like many things, but mostly Transformers and cats. :3
I draw sometimes.

caligula had anime eyes

wait romans painted their marble sculptures
it looks like a cheap theme park ride mascot

yep
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.

Commission?

monstrous-hourglass:

Is anyone playing LoL on EUNE here? I’ve been playing for some time with a few friends maining Hecarim and I would love to buy him the arcade skin. Thing is, I’m in a situation where I can’T buy RP.

I’m offering a full-color, full-body commission in exchange for an Arcade Hecarim skin (roughly 10 $). It’s quite a bit under my usual price range, but I don’t care, I want my shiny pony skin that much. If you don’t play LoL or not on EUNE, I can make a proxy acc and pull it up to lvl 10 for you to gift from, but I want to see first if anyone would be interested. This exchange involves a huge chunk of trust on my part, so I don’t want to walk into it blind.

I draw mostly robots, but I can draw any humanoid if you give me reference.

If interested, drop me an ask or a fanmail.

I sort of figured not that many people check their tumblr in the mid-afternoon, so reblogging for the night people.
