"The wonderful thing about Egyptian art is its immense dignity and restraint. Only the ancient Egyptians could have produced it. A sense of the sacred was in their everyday lives and in their art. It was made with eternity in mind."  
—  Stuart Graham as Howard Carter, The Search for Tutankhamun (2005)
Every time I look at a piece of ancient Egyptian art I can’t help wondering about the artists who created it and the people who were surrounded by it. Who were they? What were their lives like? It is this curiosity that often inspires me and influences my work and it is this curiosity that is one of the main reasons to why I wish to study egyptology … :-)

Today’s Classic: Alchemists

1. By Adriaen van Ostade (1661)

2. By David Teniers (c. 1640)

3. By Mattheus van Hellemont (c. 1650)

4. By Cornelis Vega (1663)

5. By Dutch School (17th. Century)

Why is it that people are willing to spend $20 on a bowl of pasta with sauce that they might actually be able to replicate pretty faithfully at home, yet they balk at the notion of a white-table cloth Thai restaurant, or a tacos that cost more than $3 each? Even in a city as “cosmopolitan” as New York, restaurant openings like Tamarind Tribeca (Indian) and Lotus of Siam (Thai) always seem to elicit this knee-jerk reaction from some diners who have decided that certain countries produce food that belongs in the “cheap eats” category—and it’s not allowed out. (Side note: How often do magazine lists of “cheap eats” double as rundowns of outer-borough ethnic foods?)

Yelp, Chowhound, and other restaurant sites are littered with comments like, “$5 for dumplings?? I’ll go to Flushing, thanks!” or “When I was backpacking in India this dish cost like five cents, only an idiot would pay that much!” Yet you never see complaints about the prices at Western restaurants framed in these terms, because it’s ingrained in people’s heads that these foods are somehow “worth” more. If we’re talking foie gras or chateaubriand, fair enough. But be real: You know damn well that rigatoni sorrentino is no more expensive to produce than a plate of duck laab, so to decry a pricey version as a ripoff is disingenuous. This question of perceived value is becoming increasingly troublesome as more non-native (read: white) chefs take on “ethnic” cuisines, and suddenly it’s okay to charge $14 for shu mai because hey, the chef is ELEVATING the cuisine.

this makes me sooo sick. 

and that second headline reads as if michael shot the officer

Take notes. There’s a reason they use the language they do when talking about a black person being shot versus a white person.It is worded to evoke certain imagery in our minds. Why do you think these headlines say “black man shot by police after struggle” versus “unarmed teenager shot multiple times by officers”. Notice the choice of language. What do you think of when you hear a black man struggled with police before he was shot? You assume he was being aggressive and initiated the conflict. But that is far from what happened with Michael Brown. He was walking down the street with his friend, another unarmed teenager. Think about this. Think about what you read/hear from the media before you think you know the story.
