Radha and Krishna
Krishna is God, the all-powerful, all-perfect creator, maintainer and destroyer of everything, and Radha is his eternal consort.
The Radha and Krishna amour is a love legend of all times.

Remember when those paparazzi shot photos up Anne Hathaway’s skirt? And everyone said “well, she should have been wearing underwear,” as if it was their business? As if what we wear *under* our clothes or put on our private cell phones or computers is anyone’s right to know about or see?
These are sex crimes, people. Wake up.
I got a couple asks and I realized that I should’ve clarified that I am not tabling at AX this year!
I will just be attending Friday as a drifter, but I will be hanging out at the lovely sayonararolling's table at D54 for some part of the day! Please come find me if you’d like to trade a mini print, these are the ones I’ll be bringing with me!
Also, as I stated in my previous post, all of these prints are available full size on my storenvy as a preorder!oh! And if you can’t find me, another way to contact me if you want to trade is tweeting me!!
Etruscan strainers at the MET.
All the shown examples date to the 6th-5th centuries BCE and are made of bronze. Strainers were were used at symposiums (drinking parties) to strain the wine or additives mixed into it.
The strainer shown in the first image is one of the most elaborate, and best-preserved, Etruscan strainer handles found to date. The MET provides the following description of this artefact:
The artist has skillfully presented a complex subject on a very small scale in the openwork square just below the handle’s attachment point. Two nude boxers appear to have just finished a bout in which one man has been knocked to his knees. Their trainer or referee holds his arms up to indicate the end of the round. On the underside of the attachment point is a delicately modeled doe lying on a wave-crest border. The handle’s base depicts a bearded male figure with fish-like legs that terminate in bearded snake heads. The strange legs form a perfect circular opening that allowed the patera to be hung when not in use. The sea monster, almost like a merman, may have been intended to ward off evil.
Also known as Radha Jayanti, on this day we celebrate the birth of Sri Krishna’s divine counterpart, Goddess Radha. Radha Rani is the complete embodiment of love, devotion and bhakti. May we all attain some morsel of Her loyalty so that we too can reach the realm of bliss and divinity. Many devotees take vrat (fast) on this day.
Wishing you all a joyous and pious Radha Ashtami!

"no homo" says the boy cuddling next to you. You figure he means he isn’t homosexual. It never grazed your mind he may be stating he isn’t a homosapien. That was a very big mistake on your part.
I know I said I was done with commissions.. but flatlinedreams contacted me when I’d opened my last batch and wanted to wait until after I was done all my commissions and of course I forgot, so I went ahead and did it. It was really fun in the end though. (-: Lysaia is their Brienne of Tarth inspired character.
