#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…
I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.
The shade is real
i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.
The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.
Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.
I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.
most animated movies feature very simplified backgrounds so that the detailed characters stand out more but tekkonkinkreet does the exact opposite of that and i fucking love it i cannot stop thinking about tekkonkinkreet
This is why 4chan raided Tumblr, nobody likes Tumblr feminists, NO ONE.
i can’t believe people eat this shit up like it’s real
people can just type up the wildest fake “SJW” text they can think of and it just travels infinitely around communities desperate enough to get their anti-SJW rocks off that they’ll jump at the chance to attack this fake ass manufactured SJW strawman garbage
you’re thinking “damn i’m the strongest tiger in the zoo, let this be a lesson that i will catch and kill every rabbit that dares to encroach upon my domain” meanwhile everyone else is laughing watching you rip apart a stuffed animal because you can’t tell the difference
