Women Dancing (Dance of the Forest Nymphs)
Warren B. Davis
Bio from 1st Dibs “Warren B. Davis (1865–1928) is an American painter and illustrator known for his dry-point etchings and tempera paintings of idealized young women. Davis studied at the Art Students League in New York and is often compared to similar artists of his time, N.C. Wyeth and Maxfield Parrish.
His commercial work include illustrations for Vanity Fair, Life Magazine, and The Ladies World.
Now his work can be seen at The Richter Gallery in Bellows Falls, Vermont and at the Cleveland Museum of Art”
There’s a womanly offense—greater than body odor or bad breath!— Zonite douche was a competitor to Lysol, which marketed its product towards a similar usage. There was an unspoken subtext that it could also be used as a contraceptive, although it didn’t really work. This ad is from 1950. (via Vintage Ad Browser)
You mean her pussy smelled like your dick had been in it?
The African bullfrog is the biggest frog in Africa and very aggressive. But in spite of that, it’s a devoted father. Bullfrogs spawn in little pools around the margins of larger ponds and after mating is over one male stays to keep watch over the newly hatched tadpoles. If the pool begins to dry up the dutiful dad digs a channel to a new water source.
Callanish Standing Stones, Isle of Lewis, Scotland
Local tradition says that giants who lived on the island refused to be converted to Christianity by Saint Kieran and were turned into stone as a punishment. Another belief says that at sunrise on midsummer morning, the “shining one” walked along the stone avenue, “his arrival heralded by the cuckoo’s call.” This legend could be a folk memory recalling the astronomical significance of the stones.
Construction took place between 2900 and 2600 BC, though there were possibly buildings before 3000 BC. A tomb was later built into the site. Debris from the destruction of the tomb suggests the site was out of use between 2000 BC and 1700 BC. The layout of the stones resembles a distorted Celtic cross.
The stones are near the village of Callanish on the west coast of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides.
