No, they didn’t. The hairstyle they wore were not dreadlocks. They matted, plaited and braided their hair but they were not dreadlocks. Appropriating another culture’s tradition and attempting to justify it with false historical references just makes you look like an idiot.
People are allowed to do whatever they want - but being allowed to do something and having your actions not offend anyone or cross boundaries are two different things.
Meet the Mona Lisa of the Prado, the earliest known copy of Da Vinci’s best portrait. Similarity in the undersketch of the painting indicates that this was very likely painted concurrently with the original Mona Lisa, by a student of Da Vinci.
There is much controversy in the art world over the question of whether or not to clean the fragile Mona Lisa, but her sister has been restored and some fairly odd later alterations removed to show the original vibrant colors and lighting. Some details, such as the sheerness of her shawl and the pattern on the neckline of her dress, have become utterly obscured in the original, but in the restored copy they’re perfectly clear.
It blows my mind a little bit to look at these two sisters side-by-side and imagine how much vivid detail could be hiding in the Mona Lisa under 500 years of rotten varnish.
THE COPY HAS EYEBROWS
Your response to a beautiful piece of artwork done by Leonardo Da Vinci himself is “SHES GOT EYEBROWS”. Alright. All intelligent life has been lost.
Yo Snooty McSnotwhine, the Mona Lisa’s vanished eyebrows have been the subject of debate and analysis in the art expert community for hundreds of years, long before your parents squirted water at each other from across the clown car and then honked their bicycle horns to indicate they really wanted to make a smug, insufferable little clown baby together.
i had weird dreams last night, of which i was:
- a bounty hunter of scary mutants
- forced to stay at a clearly haunted hotel that resembles the bath house from spirited away.
- a bartender who was secretly planning on killing everyone in the bar just because.
what the fuck?
