Inanna Pendant in Brass “When Inanna enters the holy shrine  Give her butter cake to eat.  Pour cold water to refresh her heart.  Offer her beer before the statue of the lion.  Treat her like an equal.” — from "Inanna, queen of heaven and earth : her stories and hymns from Sumer" - Diane Wolkstein & Samuel Noah Kramer, 1983

The Empedocles I - - Black Obsidian - Rose Quartz - Empedocles (494BC-434BC) was a pre-socratic ancient greek philosopher known for originating the “Cosmogonic Theory” of the universe. His theory states that the universe is comprised of the four classical elements (fire, earth, wind, and water) and that two divine forces are responsible for holding these elements together and tearing them apart. Empedocles believed that the Greek God of love, Eros, was responsible for holding the Universe together in opposition of the strife that was trying to pull the four elements of the universe apart. - The combination of the black obsidian arrowhead and the rose quartz perfectly symbolizes Empedocles’ Cosmogonic Theory. The rose quartz, also known as the heart stone, opens the heart up to all types of love. It also helps lower stress and tension by clearing out anger, jealousy and resentment. The black obsidian arrowhead acts as the emotional vacuum cleaner, clearing out all strife you may be dealing with. The obsidian is very protective and shields against negativity. - - - #art #artist #jewelry #archaicarrow #arrow #arrowhead #obsidian #style #wire #wirewrap #wirewrapping #wirewrappedjewelry #wirewrapped #thearchaicarrowcompany #philosophy #empedocles #handcraftedjewelry #handmadejewelry #instaart #artistsoninstagram #arts #jewelrydesign #archaic #love #awesome #follow #necklace #pendant #rose #quartz

What palette are you wearing today? - Did you know that the earliest cosmetic palettes were discovered in ancient Egyptian tombs dating back to 5,000 BC? They were typically made out of mudstone and would act as a surface on which to grind minerals such as galena or green malachite and to create cosmetic paint, eyeshadow, eyeliner and even mascara. - Cosmetics were embraced by everyone in ancient Egypt, male and female alike. Not only did cosmetics help the user stay current on fashion trends and create a refined appearance, they also provided medical benefits to the wearer. Ancient Egyptian eye makeup in particular has been shown to have anti-microbial properties, protecting Egyptian eyes not just from the sun but also from infection. - As the originators of cosmetic and makeup trends, the modern cosmetic product market should be grateful for ancient Egyptian tastes. Without their obsession with beauty who knows where the market (valued at $532 billion dollars in 2017) would be today. - 📷: Leeds Museum - #washlikeanegyptian

The Grimalkin. Ofteen seen scampering through an alley, or lurking in a damp corner, the Grimalkin is considered a pest by many. They will cry outside your doorstep, begging for food. Many children like to play with the creatures— Grimalkins are very gentle and like to rub against your legs, in hopes of getting food— but their horns and spikes may cause some trouble if they play too roughly. Younger Grimalkins, called Grimalkinnies, have small dark spots to camoflauge themselves under rotting things and mold. The grimalkin has leathery skin, yet during the night their skin becomes slimy due to the dew on the night’s grass. They like to sleep in small groups, usually in the high branches of trees. At night you may hear their chirping song, which has many meanings not known to us, but is still very annoying nonetheless... ~ Grimalkin is an archaic word for cat. I originally designed these little dudes to be Imps, but Grimalkins seemed to suit them better. Im using them as a minor species in my webcomic, Blue Plague (which isnt up yet). ~ #grimalkin #cat #medieval #monster #creature #archaic #dungeonsanddragons #originalspecies #furry #art #digital art #creepy #cute #meow #blueplague #animal #mythology

🎭Si svegliano presto i paesi, i ragazzi trasportano la legna nelle piazze e nel primo pomeriggio i falò vengono accesi per poi celebrare la santa messa. Più tardi, dopo la benedizione del fuoco, le arcaiche radici però riemergono dall'ombra e ci rammentano della terra dalla quale veniamo. I Boes e i Merdules escono nelle strade, i volti torvi e rappresi incisi nel legno nero. Cominciano a saltare, il tetro suono dei campanacci risuona nell'aria fredda mentre i fuochi continueranno a crepitare nella lunga notte. E sarà una notte di danze e condivisione, di memorie lontane, dimenticate.🎭 --- Con "Sa Prima Essia" la Barbagia spalanca le porte per il Carnevale che in seguito invaderà l'intera isola! --- 🖋️ Testo a cura di @archaicsardinia --- 📷 Foto di @gianluca.carta_photography --- . . . ________ #archaicsardinia #sardegna #sardinia #sardinian #sardinien #cerdeña #ottana #mamuthones #carnevale #maschere #mascheresarde #folklore #folktale #folclore #tradizioni #tradizioni #tradition #traditions #cultura #culture #pagan #paganism #fuoco #fire #dark #archaic #ancient #ancestral #sardiniaexperience #sardiniamylove

THE SMILING FAIR: - a detail from Simon Lewty’s enthralling work from 1994 in crayon and pencil on paper, 68 x 156 cm. Swipe left to see more of it on our stand @londonartfair (ends Sunday 20 th). Look closely and you will find two rabbits on the right, drressed in evening garb and flanked by marvellous coded words - hollux, hecany, pottopesh - all part of a world long gone yet fully present in this lively magical surface of Anglo-Saxon sensibility, saturated with wit and human curiosity. Masterful and unique, there is nothing like him, or his special kind of poetry. * #simonlewty #drawing #pencil #crayon #surrealism #poetry #code #notation #writing #archaic #postmodern #timeless #mustsee #arthistory #london

The Epicurus I - Epicurus - Ancient Greek Philosopher Epicurus believed that the purpose of philosophy was to live a happy, peaceful life, based on tranquility and freedom from fear and pain. Epicurus believed that life should be self sufficient and lived surrounded by friends. - “The Epicurus I” is designed to reflect that philosophy. The Obsidian, or Warrior Stone, arrowhead is “the spiritual vacuum cleaner.” This stone will help clear any emotional distress from the past and present as if it were a bodyguard for your spirit; protecting against addiction, fear, anxiety and anger. These properties help to single out the negativity and creates a path toward positivity and love. - The stone located central to this dagger is “the Light Maker,” Citrine. Everything about this stone radiates positive energy and happiness. Citrine is also called the “Success Stone” as its positive features can help lead an individual to find their meaning of success in life; often through creativity. - When the Obsidian and Citrine are paired they align to help the wearer realize Epicurus’ philosophical beliefs, making this Dagger a weapon in finding their desired life. - #art #artist #jewelry #archaicarrow #arrow #arrowhead #obsidian #citrine #wire #wirewrap #wirewrapping #wirewrappedjewelry #wirewrapped #thearchaicarrowcompany #philosophy #epicurus #handcraftedjewelry #handmadejewelry #instaart #artistsoninstagram #arts #jewelrydesign #archaic #love #awesome #follow #necklace #pendant

Unleashing the animal body within and connecting deeply to the warrior essence that we all have present among us is a type of rebirthing, as it reignites the power of the human spirit. - - Connecting us back to our cave man ancestral roots. A lot of the time, most of us, we don’t even know it exists or that we have access to such infinite power as the behaviour that society programs into us is to keep the warrior at bay, to tame us, to condition us into being typical suite wearing, rule abiding gentlemen - - There is nothing wrong with breaking down, activating your warrior and screaming your fucking lungs out in a field to surpass any trauma, anger, fear or stress, this is an everyday ritual of archaic behaviour as it releases the tension and trauma from the body - - We’ve been conditioned to think that that type of behaviour is crazy and thus replace it with fake drugs and medication to temporarily blanket the stress and pain or trauma - - This is what I call a sick society, and Such falsified actions such as taking a pill to relieve stress is the biggest name in the game for actually creating the disease as we’ve been taken away from traditional human character traits and flows of behaviour that we once had in place - - It’s time we return back to the ways of the ancients 🔥 🔥 - - #beastmode #warrior #lostparadise #spirituality #instapic #intuitive #stressrelief #warriors #scream #activate #energy #boss #body #inspire #wisdom #yogicurt #fire #firepower #warriors #god #archaic #traditional #culture #oldschool #ancient #ancientpractice #wild #euphoria
