ancientart:

A brief cross-cultural look at necklaces from the ancient world.

The first is made of green jadeite, from Chiapas in Mexico, and likely of the Maya culture. AD 200-900.

Second is an Egyptian necklace from the Late-Ptolemaic Period (711-30 BC), made of gold, mother of pearl, and yellow, green, and tan faience.

The next is Greco-Roman, and made of gold with the profile head of an emperor, dating to the 3rd-4th century AD.

Returning to Mexico, this next example is made of shell, and from Colima. 200 BC-AD 500.

The fifth necklace shown in Egyptian, dates to 664-525 BC, and is made of carnelian and faience.

The next example is likely Etruscan, dates to the Hellenistic period (325-50 BC), and made of gold.

Our final example is from ancient Bactria (located in modern Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan), made of agate, and dates to the Namazga V period, circa 2200-1800 BC.

Introduction to the Body in Fairy Tales By Jeannine Hall Gailey

The body is a place of violence. Wolf teeth, amputated hands. Cover yourself with a cloak of leaves, a coat of a thousand furs, a paper dress. The dark forest has a code. The witch sometimes dispenses advice, sometimes eats you for dinner, sometimes turns your brother to stone.

You will become a canary in a castle, but you’ll learn plenty of songs. Little girl, watch out for old women and young men. If you don’t stay in your tower you’re bound for trouble. This too is code. Your body is the tower you long to escape,

and all the rotted fruit your babies. The bones in the forest your memories. The little birds bring you berries. The pebbles on the trail glow ghostly white.

Sacrifice - 1x08.
