This is a personal blog where I post and reblog about me, fandoms, history and anything I find interesting.
Feel free to speak to me if you wish so. Let's be friends!
My Butterfly, My Pelvis
Krisaya Luenganantakul is an artist from Thailand and my art class was fortunate enough to have her as a guest speaker today.
When she spoke about this piece she said that people had a misconception that women are fragile. So she used the pelvic bone, the bone that helps cradle the baby before it’s born, as a sign of strength. This bone combined with the butterflies and flowers helps to convey the message that women are beautiful and strong.
