art history meme | 5/9 paintingsTitian’s Venus of UrbinoThe painting represents the allegory of marriage and had to serve as a “teaching” model to Giulia Varano, the young wife of the Duke: the evident eroticism of the painting, in fact, had to remind the woman of the marital obligations she would have to fulfill to her husband. The erotic allegory was even more evident in the representation of Venus, goddess of love, depicted as a sensual and delectable woman staring at the viewer who cannot ignore her beauty. The light and warm color of the body of Venus is in contrast to the dark background and brings out her eroticism even more. The dog at the feet of the woman is the symbol of the marital fidelity while, in the background, the house maid looking at the young girl as she rummages in a chest of drawers symbolizes motherhood.
In 1983 a man was tested to see if he could sense god if all his senses were taken away. Every sense nerve in his brain was disconnected. He could not feel, hear, see or smell. He began reporting he could hear the voices of the dead and gave precise details that he could have not known. He then said he could see them and began clawing at his eyes, it turned to screaming and biting chunks of his flesh off. His last words were “I have spoken with God, and he has abandoned us” and died.
this is terrifying

Australian scientists have developed a pair of anti-shark wetsuits that make divers appear invisible by camouflaging their bodies in the sea and trick sharks into thinking surfers are poisonous. A team of researchers from the University of Western Australia joined forces with designers from Shark Attack Mitigation Systems (SAMS) to create the suits. The blue pattern of the Elude suit can’t be seen by the shark because the fish are colour blind. While the stripes on the Diverter suit mimic the colours of poisonous fish to warn the sharks off.
YOU SEE THIS IS FANTASTIC. THIS IS WHAT WE NEED TO DO. NOT KILL SHARKS BECAUSE THEY’RE CURIOUS AND ATTACK US. WE’RE IN THEIR WATERS. WE’RE MAKING THEIR HUNTING GROUNDS SMALLER.
