#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…

I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.

The shade is real

i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.

The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.

Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.
    I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.

what if this movie took place in, like, modern times? They’d be like, european backpackers who commit petty crimes to stay afloat and then one day they stow away on a cruise but then get thrown overboard when they realize that Cortez is smuggling drugs on board. Then they wash up in Puerto Rico, and meet Chel, who is the daughter of the really rich tycoon known as the Chief who owns the El Dorado line of holiday resorts, and after she figures out that they aren’t rich yuppies on their gap year, in exchange for not telling the police she lets them stay on her dad’s property until he can fly them back home. Then it turns out the chief’s financial attourney Mr. Khan is in league with Cortez and is planning to team up with him to embezzle loads of money and then ditch them all, and then eventually they realize Cortez has somehow followed them there and there’s a bunch of shit that gets thrown down and there’s a standoff with guns and they have to crash a giant lorry filled with cocaine into a police station to get the police to find them red handed and in the end Chel goes with them to Europe and stuff??
d…did I just write a fan fiction? :I holy shit I’ve really been working too hard.

This is brilliant ;__;

I have quite a few promo postcards lying around, and most of them are old and not much use anymore. So I’m giving away three packs of 4 postcards each. The purple ones have a little white doodle in the front (like so), but otherwise, all the postcards are untouched. So you can either keep them to yourself as mini-prints, or actually use them.

All you have to do is reblog this post* and you’ll be included in the random selection! This will be running from now, throughout the weekend, until Monday 29th, morning (GMT). I’ll announce the 3 winners shortly after. I’ll send these anywhere in the world.

*Reblogs only! Likes are sweet, but won’t count.

If there’s a lot of interest I might dig into my stuff and add a few more goodies so a few more people will get something.

Ready?

Very last reblog for all those who haven’t seen this yet!
