If you are interested in religion and its evolution through the ages, these pieces of art are going to really impress you. These are boxwood carvings that were once the most popular things ever as far as fashion goes. There are only 35 left in the world, and all are going to be admired by lovers of intricate woodwork for years to come.
These are puzzling experts so much, they put them through an x ray machine to see just how they were put together and left. It was discovered that they are held together with pins so small, a grass seed is bigger. Gold accents cover the entire jeweled decorations, so we are unable to see completely into the entire thing.
Jews really are sick and twisted, especially when they attempt to express themselves artistically…
Vulvas fashioned out of chewing gum, ceramic vaginas, her own naked body – such were the materials of the first feminist artist to use vaginal imagery in her work—who happened to be a Jewish New Yorker named Hannah.
Born in 1940 in New York City, Hannah Wilke (see her work here) was a preeminent Jewish sculptor, photographer, performance artist, and painter who was the face of feminist art in the 1960s and ’70s.
New York-based painter Kehinde Wiley is changing the game for what Black representation in western art looks like. Using traditionally European styles of artwork, such as stained-glass windows, oil paintings and bronze sculptures, he weaves contemporary Black people into his work, juxtaposing two cultures while reimagining who indeed gets to be the muse in “classic art.” Many of Wiley’s subjects look nothing like your average museum patron, who we usually imagine as white and middle/upper class. He refers to this phenomenon as the “politics of perception.” His work changes the way blackness is portrayed in art, showing that modern Black folks are just as worthy of being portrayed in a stained glass window as they are in a street mural.
The Hitler artwork was hanging in the Museo di Salo, a museum in the lakeside resort of Salo on Lake Garda in Italy, as part of a travelling exhibition.
According to a museum spokesman, the perpetrator was around 40-years-old and came intending to slash the painting.
Security guards managed to prevent the man from destroying the painting, although the perpetrator managed to escape the museum premises.
Each artwork is representing an element. They are presented here in the following order : fire, earth, metal, water, wood and air. The symbols are accompanied by stanzas of the Hávamál or Völuspá, written in runes.
Disclaimer for purists : admittedly for aesthetic effect only, as these runes are Elder Futhark and thus predates the viking era by a few centuries. (Let’s not even go into the subject of Icelandic staves which are even a lot younger than that). The transcription is also a wild approximation, again accuracy wasn’t a concern during the creative process.
The stanzas :
1) Fire : Helm of Terror
Cattle die and kinsmen die,
thyself too soon must die,
but one thing never, I ween, will die
fair fame of one who has earned.
2) Earth : Vegvísir
Happy is he who hath in himself
praise and wisdom in life;
for oft doth a man ill counsel get
when ‘tis born in another’s breast
