Arch of Constantine, 315 CE

This enormous edifice was built along Rome’s triumphal route by the senate and people soon after Emperor Constantine’s victory over Maxentius in 312CE. It represents the beginning of a trend toward the strategic reuse of earlier material (sometimes called spolia) in new monuments in late antiquity. For example, the bearded statues above the columns were taken from Trajan’s Forum, and the round reliefs over the side-arches are from a monument of Hadrian’s time. The narrow, horizontal reliefs running below the roundels, by contrast, were commissioned under Constantine and represent his battles with Maxentius and his triumphal entry into Rome. (x)

  · 15-Year-Old African Kid Tells Madonna To Go ‘Have Sex’ with Herself

Dakarai Molokomme, a 15-year-old starving child from a small village in Zimbabwe, has just told , one of the most famous pop stars in the world, to  and f*** , the local media are reporting exclusively.

“Yes, it’s true, I told Madonna to go f*** herself. Do you want to know why?” Dakarai asked. “It’s the same thing every time with these snobby rich Americans. Every once in a while they come to show us their support for the so-called eradication of poverty by adopting a child from a starving family, but they actually do more harm than good. Transracial international adoptions are part of the white savior industrial complex,” Dakarai explained.

In further discussions with journalists from the media, the  stated that “none of the children here actually want to be taken away from their family and friends so they can be displayed as some kind of trophy in the homes of self-righteous singers or actors who want to score some points with the media and Oprah.”

“If they really want to help us, they should get Big Pharma to ship us some anti-retroviral drugs for the AIDS epidemic, or build schools and hospitals. If they don’t want to do that, then they can all go f** themselves!” the child told reporters.

The 15-year-old also stated that he would say the same thing to any one of those American or European “faux humanitarian posers”, except for Bono, whom he said he would also kick in the groin.

“Bono’s efforts to save the African savage from itself prove that the colonial imperative is alive and well,” Dakarai said as he walked with other village children collecting sticks to build a tree fort.

Gebrauchsgraphik, published 1924 - 44. Germany. Via designers-books.

The monthly publication was one of the first-generation graphic design magazines in Europe. Following the poster movement and typographic reforms associated with German Jugendstil, it developed them in new directions. Soon the magazine was in german and english. 1950 the title was revitalised under the same name and later relaunched as Novum.

Marble statue of a wounded Amazon

Roman, 1st–2nd century A.D.

Marble, H. 203.84 cm (80 1/4 in.) 

Copy of a Greek bronze statue of ca. 450–425 B.C.

In Greek art, the Amazons, a mythical race of warrior women from Asia Minor, were often depicted battling such heroes as Herakles, Achilles, and Theseus. This statue represents a refugee from battle who has lost her weapons and bleeds from a wound under her right breast. Her chiton is unfastened at one shoulder and belted at the waist with a makeshift bit of bridle from her horse. Despite her plight, her face shows no sign of pain or fatigue. She leans lightly on a pillar at her left and rests her right arm gracefully on her head in a gesture often used to denote sleep or death. Such emotional restraint was characteristic of classical art of the second half of the fifth century B.C. 

The original statue probably stood in the precinct of the great temple of Artemis at Ephesos, on the coast of Asia Minor, where the Amazons has legendary and cultic connections with the goddess. The Roman writer Pliny the Elder described a competition held in the mid-fifth century B.C. between five famous sculptors, including Phidias, Polykleitos, and Kresilas, who were to make a statue of a wounded Amazon for the temple. This statue type is generally associated with that contest. [x]
