    Alessandro Turchi

    The Virgin and Child with the Young John the Baptist

    c. 1625

    Oil on slate

    The Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College, Winter Park, Florida

    From ARTstor;

        Alessandro Turchi painted this moving work in oil on slate, rather than canvas; the varnished slate increases the chiaroscuro (light and dark) effect, giving the figures a greater sculptural sense. Mary, Jesus, John, and Francis are composed within an isosceles triangle, a composition that dates back to the Renaissance. Francis of Assisi (1182-1226) has had a vision of the Virgin Mary, and we are here witnesses to it. Turchi was influenced by Caravaggio, Guido Reni, and Annibale Caracci, to whom our painting was once ascribed.

    Here are the women with ancient
    anger in their veins and the cruelty
    of a goddess in their hearts.

    You will beg before her, you
    will scream; but Hera never flinched
    from the words of a mortal,

    so why should she?

    Do not stand in her way.

    She will burn down your kingdoms,
    herself with it, if it meant
    your ruin.



    - Medea /// (d.s)

    David Lowery Set to Direct TV Show About a Sex Occultist Who Helped Invent Rocket Science:

    theheadlesshashasheen:

    The series, created by “Black Swan” writer Mark Heyman, will chart the life of Parsons, who helped to pioneer rocket engineering in America. As chronicled in George Pendle’s 2006 book, Parsons was “a mysterious and brilliant man in 1940s Los Angeles, who by day helps birth the entirely unknown discipline of American rocketry, and by night is a performer of sex magick rituals and a disciple to occultist Aleister Crowley,” per a CBS All Access release.

    Evidence that ancient farms had very different origins than previously thought:

    coldalbion:

    “It all started about 45,000 years ago. At that point, people began burned down vegetation to make room for plant resources and homes. Over the next 35,000 years, the simple practice of burning back forest evolved. People mixed specialized soils for growing plants; they drained swamps for agriculture; they domesticated animals like chickens; and they farmed yam, taro, sweet potato, chili pepper, black pepper, mango, and bananas

    .École française d'Extrême-Orient archaeologist Damian Evans, a co-author on the Nature paper, said that it wasn’t until a recent conference brought international researchers together that they realized they’d discovered a global pattern. Very similar evidence for ancient farming could be seen in equatorial Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. Much later, people began building “garden cities” in these same regions, where they lived in low-density neighborhoods surrounded by cultivated land.”
