Ancient Greek Dog Rhyton, c. 340-325 BC
Molded into the shape of a Laconian dog, the rhyton comes from the ancient Greek colony of Apulia, in what is now southern Italy. The vessel was designed with a wide mouth at one end, with the other pierced with a small hole.
It is believed that the cup would have been used to scoop wine from a larger carrier, blocking the hole with a thumb, before releasing again to let the fluid drain out. The stunning item bears the trademark style of ancient Greece, painted in black over terracotta.
A fascinating and beautiful hydrozoa.
The Portuguese man-of-war is infamous for its painful sting, but one photographer finds the beauty inside this animal’s dangerous embrace.

I’m getting bored of the tits on wings harpy motif, so I decided to make my own (these are far from accurate though I apologize)
first: southern cassowary
second: fancy rooster
third: marabou stork
((I’m gonna have to make more these were so dang fun))

Whoa. The first one is mega deep in the uncanny valley (and that’s not a bad thing in this case…)
do you think impressionists ever imitate people they find sexually attractive when they masturbate and essentially sweet talk/ dirty talk to themselves?
Okay, so for like a full minute I thought you meant like the Impressionist movement. So I’m picturing Manet pretending to be Monet and that gets his rocks off. I hate being an artist.
