This will be my last second to last post on Glass so I can pick up some other blog subjects again. But Glass will certainly pop up now and then. I show mainly modern glass art, but this one is incredibly timeless. It's a Roman goblet from around the 4th century. My goodness, it had seventeen turbulent centuries to break...
When I was a house painter I saw this table in the house of a young well-to-do couple. No kids yet. Which meant Shoes Off and Do Not Eat Your Lunch At The table. On the tabel. We house painters got it.
Door knobs. Best known are the faceted ones in the crammed house of Aunt Jemima or the trailer of the Rabble family. They're usually of perspex. The specimen here is simple, massive and of green glass. This is what I would chose for my house. If I had doors that need to be knobby.
The title and the category 'gaysex' are misnomers. In these series I, pizza dell'arte delivery boy, post not only gay/homosexual/ gender-equal illustrations. Some of the figures are not even 'clad in air'. But for the pick 'n mix art series I decided to maintain the title, I always wanted to use it.
Women suffer from penis envy, men from vagina dentata and penile xenophobia. In the beginning there was God who said: 'Adam, your penis is strictly for urinating. For your, um, versatile creativity I will burden the hell out of you.'
But Adam didn't listen, so some time later the Lord added handpalm rope burning and venereal diseases in a variety of colors and smells.
Nudity and Sex in a comic! Joseph McCarthy and Fredric Wertham and forever financee Lois Lane turn in their graves! Till this day, the worlds of Marvel and DC try to cope with the graphic facts of life. They are still more at ease with graphic violence... There is a male subject that has little to do with Alpha Machismo. I think. It is in all regards difficult to categorize. I saw it only once, in a comic book. A real one. So I prefer to call it a graphic novel. It appeared in the historical series The Seven Lives of the Sparrow Hawk, a theme around a masked man who fights against the injustice of serfdom and poverty, and the era is the 17th century France during the reign of Henry IV.

This is a difficult one. A few odds and ends, actually. One can wonder if cannibalism is a product of testosteron and machismo. And is it erotic? A variety in crazy serial killers seem to think so. Since the entertainment boom in zombies, cannibalism has become hot.
Orlando, Charlemagne's most famous paladin from Legends of Charlemagne, has been tempted to forget his duty to protect the emperor through his love for the pagan princess Angelica. At the beginning of The Song of Roland (a poem) Angelica escapes from the castle of the Bavarian Duke Namo, and Roland aka Orlando sets off in pursuit. The two meet with various adventures until Angelica saves a wounded Saracen knight, Medoro, falls in love, and elopes with him to Cathay. When Orlando learns the truth, he rampages in total despair through Europe and Africa, destroying everything in his path.
The Alpha Male In Art series was left unfinished because I grew tired with it. But here's the - I think - indispensable bonus chapter on war machismo. Loaded with alpha boys brimming with tribal testosteron, as we know from history books and movies. The real men who don't dance and are always out on killing sprees.
