Lost Dolls

graff1980:

Baby girl
You put your dolls away
Cause in the modern age
You are just dust and decay
Waiting to wither away
Voice limited by our digital way
PC problems
Facebook issues
And all of your Teddy bears
Still miss you
Furry friends that stood by you
Till your nightmares ended
Softness against a cold…

I wished upon
the stars for you every night.
But you never came true.
I guess, not even the night sky
believes in you.
And that’s why I don’t
love you anymore.
They Shine But Not For You Baby by Royla Asghar (via poems-of-madness)

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.)

Wow Caligula looks like he should be followed around by a bunch of cartoon mythical creatures voiced by distinctive B-list actors.
