I'm back-ish. Mostly came back  to read things now that I'm out of school and a professional bum again.

Here's some reason thread-jacks from motherfucking Byzantium.  The first is the physical component of my master's thesis, where I went into the inventory of an 11th Century patrician woman and recreated some of her garments based on extant artwork. It took translation from Middle Greek, but fuck you: Orange. That's one of the icons I'm done as well. St. Lucia (Loukia) of Syracuse. The most recent one I've done of the Archangel Gabriel was fucking killer, but anyways, pics.

And this is a 12th Century Byzantine ensemble based on the Eisiterion of Agnes of France from 1179. It's a story of how a 9 year old princess from France came to Constantinople and married the emperor, complete with Byzantine side-eye from the empress. I shit you not, it's fucking glorious. I want to take the image of the side-eyeing empress, transform it into a banner tattoo that says, "Byz, please!"



Oh, and the side-eye, the whole thing is kind of terrifyingly pedo, though, even if it was a standard practice:

Sovereign Episkopos-Princess Kaousuu; Esq., Battle Nun, Bene Gesserit.
Our Lady of Perpetual Confusion; 1st Church of Discordia

Those patterns though!  :fap:
Were Sasanian pearl roundels a common motif in the Medieval West too? I know that they show up in Chinese and Japanese textiles from time to time. Silk Road and all that.

I'm going to refer to this as the first historic use of side-eye to dodgy behaviour.
