The Chauvet cave, France, the art of prehistory.
In 1994, three friends discovered in the south of France a cave with magnificent cave paintings, more than 30,000 years old.
Under the ground of the Ardèche region, an invaluable treasure is hidden for its antiquity, its conservation and the pictorial quality of the representations; one of the oldest and most splendid examples of Arieñaciense parietal art, dating approx. between 40,000 and 30,000 B.C.
chop was a bastion of safety and freedom. we cannot let them take this silently.
i dont normally post about this shit mainly because tumblr was supposed to be a place for me to go to escape, but at this point i dont think i can keep that up.
stream to donate for yemen
i havent seen anything on tumblr yet so, for all my followers, sista akos on youtube created a stream to donate video for yemen, where 100% of the ad revenue will be donated to various charities to provide relief.
search up “stream to donate for yemen” on youtube or click the link here
I’m adding to this because y’all gonna learn some shit about housing your pets.
Someone make more I love this new meme.
I know that huge homes are great for pets but also did it fucking occur to you that some people don’t have the room or money for those?
hey, guess what. those are all minimum requirements. actually, the person who added onto my post even made the bird cage still TOO small for those birds.
and if you dont have the money or the space for those pets, don’t fucking get the pet.
If you don’t have money or space for those pets get a cactus
DANGER OF EVICTION & DEPORTATION
I am Jah (blackbaberevolution or blackboyrevolution), I am an bi nb Jamaican immigrant on a student permit living in the Bahamas (once was undocument in America) because of my status, I am unable to work legally, or have a bank account, and must stay in school to stay in the country. My controlling abusive mother cut me off recently because she’s a ultra christian bigot and found out I was having sex with a guy behind her back (i’m 23). She’s not paying for my school (despite me maintaining a 3.50+ Gpa), and threatened to kick me out. Though I have places to stay I need money for food, transportation and to pay for the minimum amount of classes to stay in the country. I tried to handle this on my own for a month now but I have no choice now. Please give any help you can, whether it’s a reblog or a dollar. Help me survive during and after quarantine.
my friends’ paypal account: firstname.lastname@example.org
PS: please send a message on paypal saying, “for Jah” so my friend knows the donation is for me. Message me privately on tumblr if you want proof of my unstable immigration status or grades. Last day for school payments is Aug 5. 2020 and my permit expires in september.
I am a writer and I can write ficlet with an edit if you want one. <3 Thank you.
Thank you everyone who donated. I know it’s a whole lotta broke people being generous. I’m 1/3 of the way there. But I’m still in deep and reblogs have stalled. Please continue to reblog.
She finally kicked me out. I have to leave the country before I get deported. Is anyone willing to help me migrate? I’ll come with as much money as possible - and a great work ethic. I’ll marry you, do housework, get a job, whatever. I’m beyond desperate.
please, please help my friend if you can!!!!!!!!
So (according to the concept art book) as the Fellowship travels deeper into Middle Earth, the places they pass through become inspired by progressively older periods of history. The farther along you are in the story, the more ancient the design influences
We begin in The Shire: which feels so familiar because, with its tea-kettles and cozy fireplaces, it’s inspired by the relatively recent era of rural England in the 1800s
But when we leave Hobbiton, we also leave that familiar 1800s-England aesthetic behind and start going farther back in time.
Bree is based on late 1600s English architecture
Rohan is even farther back, based on old anglo-saxon era architecture (400s-700s? ce)
Gondor is way back, and no longer the familiar English or Anglo-Saxon: its design comes from classical Greek and Roman architecture
And far far FAR back is Mordor. It’s a land of tents and huts: prehistoric, primitive, primeval. Cavemen times
And the heart of Mordor is a barren lifeless hellscape of volcanic rock…like a relic from the ages when the world was still being formed, and life didn’t yet exist
And then they finally reach Mount Doom, which one artist described as
“where the ring was made, which represents, in a sense, the moment of creation itself”
