I like large gold jewelry from ancient cultures
mughal india is also interesting to me

Id say yes.
not viking, supposedly from north Africa. Although she is from greek mythology so maybe not real. She later turns into a child eating daemon.
Something with her has to do with snakes (she maybe turned into a snake-like creature) hence the snakeskin/snakes in the post you're replying to and pic related.

very very cool Wikipedia page on this painting (which is 16 feet by 23 feet) that includes multiple drafts/studies and a bunch of history
can't deal with how blue
The Met has tons of closeups to let you see the details.
Im always amazed at how advanced fashion was back then.
People wore miniature carvings on precious metals, intricate bracelets like these. Its really fascinating.
Shame there arent too many well preserved shoes from this time period.
I wonder what the Emperor's equivalent of Rick Owens was.

I remember reading that one of the designers for acne was inspired by Hilma Af Klint. It's pretty easy to see the influence in the palettes.
Yeah. I honestly don't understand all the hype the Mona Lisa gets compared to other great paintings.

Danish interior design in the late 1800 was really something, minimal as fuck.
Just look at that composition
The Sultan's letter to the Cossacks:
>As the Sultan; son of Muhammad; brother of the Sun and Moon; grandson and viceroy of God; ruler of the kingdoms of Macedonia, Babylon, Jerusalem, Upper and Lower Egypt; emperor of emperors; sovereign of sovereigns; extraordinary knight, never defeated; steadfast guardian of the tomb of Jesus Christ; trustee chosen by God himself; the hope and comfort of Muslims; confounder and great defender of Christians—I command you, the Zaporozhian Cossacks, to submit to me voluntarily and without any resistance, and to desist from troubling me with your attacks.
>Thou art a turkish imp, the damned devil's brother and friend, and a secretary to Lucifer himself. What the devil kind of knight art thou that cannot slay a hedgehog with your naked arse? The devil shits, and your army eats. Thou a son of a bitch wilt not ever make subjects of Christian sons; we have no fear of your army, by land and by sea we will battle with thee, go fuck thy mother.
Thou art the Babylonian scullion, Macedonian wheelwright, brewer of Jerusalem, goat-fucker of Alexandria, swineherd of Greater and Lesser Egypt, Armenian pig, Podolian villain, catamite of Tartary, hangman of Kamyanets, and fool of all the world and underworld, a fool before our God, a grandson of the Serpent, and the crick in our dick. Pig's snout, mare's arse, slaughterhouse cur, unchristened brow, screw thine own mother!
So the Zaporozhians declare, you lowlife. Thou wilt not even be herding Christian pigs. Now we shall conclude, for we don't know the date and don't have a calendar; the moon's in the sky, the year in the book, the day's the same over here as it is over there; for this kiss our arse!
