The African Renaissance Monument in Senegal, larger that the Eiffel tower and the statue of liberty .. Things you don’t see in mainstream media.
This is beautiful.
I think this picture better illustrates the size of that monument.
I never even knew this existed this makes me so happy to find out about it
Argh, I seriously wish there was more on African Art movements in Art/Art History books. This monument was made back in 2006 for crying out loud! There’s so much that the art-historian in me is burning to say about this…But short story shorter, the movement known as African Renaissance is a relatively modern and multi-faceted concept, starting around the mid-20th century, even though more often than not it takes up such a small section of the so-called “Non-Western” classes at uni. Just the fact that we still treat the name of the class with such an Otherness mentality is so absurd and more than maddening, but there you have it folks. Sigh.
Once upon a December. Anastasia in Russian. This would be the language that she would have sang in. Everything just seems more genuine and real.
This is amazing!
I will never get over the fact that Rajah was replaced with Simba it’s so cute
I love them all
These are all adorable, but I think Megara made me squeal. Then so did just about everything after her.
i’m not even mad
- 2010 tumblr: don't be racist or homophobic or sexist. Be kind and accepting
- 2014 tumblr: I'm more oppressed than you. Don't listen to white rappers. Sushi is cultural appropriation. Kill straight people.
My older cat got sick of my kitten trying to play with him so he pinned him down and licked him until he fell asleep
