Unusual Victorian Renaissance revival hexagonal terrarium. English, Circa 1860-70
The six canted glass sides of the top and bottom section all framed with well carved moldings and details including gothic arches. The collection of rare plants from all over the world was a popular pastime as well as a serious pursuit. Easier travel advanced the sciences, especially botany. “Collectors” would show off their field specimens and treasures at home in these specially made, often elaborate, display cases. The terrarium is a direct descendent of the Wardian case (invented 1829 by Dr. Nathaniel Ward) which can closely replicate the Earth’s water cycle, trapping and recycling the available moisture and encouraging growth.

"Fading" Parisian Art Deco Apartment by Ramy Fischler

designed-for-life:

Ramy Fischler of RF Studio has covered the closet doors of this Parisian apartment with Baroque prints, in-laid smoky bronzed mirrors into the molding of the dining room, and the most impressive feature is displayed by the white custom epoxy paint that has been applied, by hand, on the woodwork lining the walls of the living room and dining area in a fading-out effect, creating an overall dramatic effect as if the ceiling is descending into the wall like a mist.

Otomi Art in Querétaro | Mexico (by Boa Mistura)

The setting for Boa Mistura‘s latest project is La Colonia de las Américas on the outskirts of Querétaro, México. It is a humble community of working class people consisting of housing (much of which is self built) and small business: ‘misceláneas’ (grocery stores), taquerías, and cantinas. La Colonia de Las Américas is located across two sides of a hill, and has a ‘boomerang’ form overlooking the two main highways of the state; the ’5 de febrero’ road and ‘Bernardo Quintana’, which converge exactly at the apex of Las Américas — as a result the neighborhood is seen daily seen by thousands of people.

Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision  in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion: 
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!

brown girls rule the world

I’m sorry to say this but if someone said “white girls rule the world” instead of “brown girls rule the world” then we’d have a major shitstorm on our hands.

You’re right! White girls (a) don’t need to say that, and (b) would have no reason to say that because they dorule the world of beauty conventions, standards of attraction, and etc. in reality. Brown women and girls are completely undervalued, dismissed, and quite often have their focuses derailed—as you so ridiculously demonstrate here—simply because they aren’t White.

So when a brown woman says something to encourage herself and others who are generally put down for how they look with something like “we rule the world” accompanying beautiful pictures of a beautiful young brown woman, that’s representation we don’t get elsewhere.If a White girl said it, it’d be doing nothing but reinforcing the idea that White women are the end all and be all to beauty and that everyone must be compared to their standards.

I’m sorry to say but throwing about false equivalences as if everything exists in a vacuum makes you look like a buffoon, and ignoring historical and present social and cultural conditions does not make your point any more solid than shooting it with a full clip would.
