  • Trying to use an electric sewing machine :L I like the old, hand powered machines better. They aren’t complicated and you aren’t as scared of sewing your fingers together.

    Casual reminder that in one of Leonardo da Vinci’s many notebooks containing innumerable artistic and scientific sketches and notes of incomprehensible importance, there is a sketch of two penises with legs and tails walking towards a crudely drawn anus.

    The sketch was most likely done by Leonardo’s apprentice Salai, who was not only very likely one of Leonardo’s lovers, but who was also infamously mischievous. Better yet, the anus is literally labeled “Salai.”

    So either Salai drew these while Leonardo wasn’t looking just to annoy his boyfriend, or Leonardo himself put actual time and energy into drawing these. Either way, the human race is truly blessed to have made such a discovery.

    There are dick drawings like the ones you see on desks in school in Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks. Please cherish this information.

    In the midst of exploring Renaissance Italy history for reasons, I have found a wonder.

    Elaborate golden bracelet 

    This golden bracelet was meant as a fertility talisman, or amulet, and many powerful goddesses have been woven into the bracelet. The snakes are woven as a herculian knot. The snake on the left is Agathodaimon and on the right is Terenouthis. The goddess Isis-Fortuna and Aphrodite are standing on the knot.
