I took this profoundly disturbing picture of a man carrying his cholera-stricken wife during the Bangladesh war in 1971. Ten million people crossed the East Pakistan border to India to escape the horrors of this bloody war.

Johann Samuel Mock

Lord Jonimo with the Moorish Woman Friederica

Poland (before 1739)

Oil on Canvas, 172 x 198 cm.

This painting was catalogue number 462 in the inventory of 1739 of the collection of Augustus II, king of Poland.

Muzeum Narodowe w Warszawie (on loan); Royal Palace (reconstructed after World War II) (on long-term loan), King’s Apartments, antechamber.

I truly wish I had a color photograph of this work to share with you all, but this is all that I have available at the moment. I’m not surprised that this is in the King’s apartments in Poland since it’s obviously a masterwork. I think all of us are just as in awe of Friederica as Lord Jonimo is.

Tura Satana appreciation post. here’s what u need to know:

  • born in 1938 and died in 2011
  • her parents were a silent movie actor and a circus performer
  • she was gang-raped by five men when she was ten. they were never prosecuted and it was rumoured that the judge was paid off.
  • this prompted her to train in various martial arts (such as aikido and karate)
  • over the next 15 years, she hunted down each of her rapists and exacted revenge against them. they never even knew who she was until she told them
  • at the same time, she formed an all-woman gang called “the angeles”
  • "we had leather motorcycle jackets, jeans and boots and we kicked butt."
  • moved to los angeles when she was 15 and supported herself
  • dated elvis presley and turned down a marriage proposal from him
  • her most famous film role was in 1965, as varla, a “very aggressive and sexual female character”, in faster, pussycat! kill! kill! (a film that was “an ode to female violence”)
  • Tura was responsible for her own costume, makeup, use of martial arts, and much of her dialouge. she also performed all her own stunts and fight scenes
  • was known for not taking shit from anyone. russ meyer, the director for faster, pussycat! kill!, said of her “[tura was] extremely capable. she knew how to handle herself. don’t fuck with her! and if you have to fuck her, do it well! she might turn on you!”
