✨Swipe for more detail and a shimmery video 😍✨ I'm so glad you guys are liking this 🦀Cancer #mermay !♋️ I'll be doing limited pearlescent hand painted prints for all the merms too! The color choices are based on a zodiac color site I'm following. They say Cancer is smokey grey, silvery blue, sea green and violet/lavender. Very fun palette! Next up is Libra! (I'm going in the order that was voted on in my IG stories). These will go into June as I want to spent time on them and make a nice calender or zine plus prints. I may release it all at once, or do half and half :) thanks for all the love guys!!

Day 23! How's your Mermay going? I'm still one behind, but I hope to catch up! I miss doing pencil sketches though!

For the next few days @dovecot_gallery, the studio behind the tapestry 'The Caged Bird's Song' at the heart of our free exhibition 'Chris Ofili: Weaving Magic', will be taking over our Instagram to share a behind the scenes look at the making of this extraordinary work of art. This detail shows the moment the weavers reached the horizon on the left panel. The sky is ominous grey where a storm is brewing.
The tapestry is a triptych, with the three panels interpreted from a watercolour design by artist Chris Ofili, and woven at Dovecot Tapestry Studio in Edinburgh. Ofili was approached to create a work for The Clothworkers' Company in late 2013 for their Dining Hall. The brief though was open. The imagery in the final tapestry reflects Ofili's ongoing interest in classical mythology and contemporary 'demigods', together with the stories, magic, and colour of the Trinidadian landscape. © Dovecot Tapestry Studio

Over and over and over again, we play the same old game
Cards kept close to our chest, that's where your secret's kept

Lord Shiva is often called as Pashupatinath. The name Pashupati means 'the lord of beasts' or the 'lord of animals' and derives from the Sanskrit words 'pashu' meaning animals, and 'pati' meaning the protector. Pashupati as the incarnation was one among the eight Rudras, the one who holds the place of fire. In the Rig Veda, pashupa was related as the protector of cattle deriving from the name Pushan. The name Pashupati also stands for a figure that has been suggested as an earlier form of Rudra and shown as sitting among animals in the Indus Civilization. One of the biggest and most important Pashupatinath temples is Shri Pashupatinath Temple in Nepal and the other in Mandsaur, Madhya Pradesh.

According to scriptures Lord Shiva was named Pashupati by Lord Vishnu and other gods during the time of Tripura Samhar, when Shiva became the lord of all demons (pashu) and destroyed Tripura, the three cities of illusion, which were being ruled by the asuras Kamlaaksha, Taarakaaksha, and Vidyunmaali who were wreaking havoc by attacking gods and sages. It is also believed in Shiva Purana that any living being, including humans, that is in the clutches of his own ego, desires and ignorance, is considered an animal (pashu) and only Pashupati can relieve liberate them.! ✨🌿💀🔱👁🐍🌙🐂🌲🔔🐒🕉🐚🌳🌀🎨 #artist Unknown

This one is a portrait inspired by Ekwensu, an igbo deity of chaos, change, and negotiations. And boy oh boy isn't it a time of chaos and change and pathways merging and moving to and from each other. Hopefully these difficult roads and journeys have snacks along the way.

La, the word for sun in the eastern Pomo dialect. Coyote steals the sun and has the crows return it to the sky.

✨Sail over my bones/ In the sea of my skin/ Drink deep your last breaths, love /As I draw you in✨ 💀 ----------------------------------------------------------- Siren themed photoshoot with @forest_faun from 2 years ago, and siren song poem I wrote about 5 years ago. I always liked the dangerous quality of mythical sirens - they have agency, power, and control of their situation. They're so much more badass than the Little Mermaid style "I'll give up my voice and abandon my home for a man I don't know"  mermaids.

Not really any lgbt thing but I love Greek mythology. #lgbt #lgbtpride #lesbian #gay #bi #bisexual #trans #transgender #gender #ftm #mft #pan #pansexual #queer #mythology
