this statue is known as Woman of Willendorf. she is just 11 cm high. It was found in 1908 by a workman named Johann Veran during excavations near Willendorf, a village in Lower Austria. what i love about her is a combination of 3 things: that people think she was made to be held - she cannot stand up -; that this is one oldest statuettes ever found and that it representes a curvy woman. i mean, was she important, or of significance, so that someone thought it was important to carve her into stone, forever? was she different from other women? was her shape and generous body something grotesque or something to be admired? whenever i see her, all these questions flood my brain and me realize how the perception of beauty has changed over thousands of years. i love her.
Dan has a one night stand with a woman and wakes up the next day to a Lock-down Boston! He can’t leave her house! it’s fantastic.
read this article - 10 minutes, tops - and you laugh out loud.

i took this photo in the Cathedral of Salamanca and, once again, I had to follow my subject around. by follow i mean stalk. yes. i spotted her when i went in and immediatly noticed that she was walking very slowly and with difficulty. the day before i had noticed that there was set of candle shedding very little light over a corner of the cathedral and thought “Hum… I wonder what she would look like near the candles.” originaly, I wanted the picture to be in colours, but after a miute or two after walking in, I got distracted and lost her. so I had to track her down and my the time she was near the candles it was too late to set the camera back to colours (I had set the camera for black and white). So this is her.This is also one of my all-time favourites because the woman sees tiny. © Sara Rodrigues Pereira
