Human-headed winged bull and winged lion (lamassu). Neo-Assyrian, ca. 883–859 B.C. Nimrud (ancient Kalhu).

The so-called Standard Inscription that ran across the surface of most of the reliefs described Ashurnasirpal’s palace:
"I built thereon [a palace with] halls of cedar, cypress, juniper, boxwood, teak, terebinth, and tamarisk [?] as my royal dwelling and for the enduring leisure life of my lordship." 
The inscription continues: “Beasts of the mountains and the seas, which I had fashioned out of white limestone and alabaster, I had set up in its gates. I made it [the palace] fittingly imposing.” 
Such limestone beasts are the human-headed, winged bull and lion pictured here. The horned cap attests to their divinity, and the belt signifies their power. The sculptor gave these guardian figures five legs so that they appear to be standing firmly when viewed from the front but striding forward when seen from the side. These lamassu protected and supported important doorways in Assyrian palaces. (met)

Dear Republicans: probably almost no one would even care…except that it’s always some pious GOP Family Values hypocrite who’s constantly preaching to everyone else about their alleged superior morals and the “sanctity of marriage”

ASOS - Copying / Using my logo

In December of last year I was shown a link to ASOS’s online shop where a vest top they had been selling for £32 had been using a logo I had created for a friend in 2010. You can see the top on ASOS’s website HERE

The original logo can be seen here:

image

You can see from this screenshot that the original file was created on the 19th of August in 2010 and later modified on the 24th of March 2011.

image

The modified version from 2011 see’s the logo the same, but modified to be bolder:

image

It is clear if you compare the logo on the vest and the logo I have created that they are the exact same design and it has simply been lifted and added to a vest. You can see that the verticals of the A and Y line up perfectly as well as T and U and also the T in Youth has been replaced with an inverted cross.

I initially messaged ASOS via Twitter stating the case and they were very forthcoming with an apology and to message them, however I then never heard back, last night I messaged them via Twitter again with no response, and now I am writing this blog post by suggestions of other creatives in the hope I will get a response and this mess sorted out.

For most people in Europe, female genital cutting is an unimaginable act that happens far away. But for many FGM survivors in Britain, the cultural practice doesn’t just affect women in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. The increased diversity that has come with immigration means that more European countries have to not only acknowledge the problem but also find ways to stop it.
Activists say most cases occur when immigrant families take their daughters to their country of origin for “the cutting season” and then return to Britain. Leyla Hussein was only seven when she experienced FGM in Somalia. She’s one of the many women who are speaking out against the practice and forcing politicians to confront the issue.

Titled Portraits of People, a Private Party
I paid 25 bucks for this today to a guy named Armando  who sweeps storefronts in the Tenderloin. He didn’t know how long he has had it but was grateful to get a new one.
