The absolutely vile and shrewd evil lair of the mad artist Dr. KT mcsketchie.

I come from a long line of raptors, raised by the last known raptors in existance... I carry on the legacy of my people even now. I have an obsessive fascination with fat cats and shaved fat cats.

Im bigender and I am 16 years old going on 17. beware! I love survival horror games and will post about them sometimes, if you are sensitive with horror content its best you don't follow me.

SO NOT QUESTION MY TASTE IN DESIGN.

#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…

I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.

The shade is real

i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.

The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.

Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.
    I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.

I hope I don’t get flamed for this, but…This is a statue of Cleopatra right? Well, Cleopatra wasn’t a native Egyptian. She was actually of Greek origin, so she would be white. Although Cleopatra did present herself as the reincarnation of the Egyptian goddess Isis. So it would make sense that she would be represented as a native of Egypt in art pieces. But she was born Greek.
I’m not an expert though, so I don’t expect anyone to really listen to this. I’m just a someone who really likes history.If it were the statue of Queen Nefertiti or Hatchepsut who were, to my understanding, native to Egypt or a country around there than I understand.
Also, as I feel I should mention this as well. From what I can tell from the photo the statue was found underwater, and I’m going to assume that the statue was made out of stone. Well, water will erode stone. And it has been shown that statues found submerged in the ocean, or a large body of water in general, are damaged. Exposure to the elements would do this to pretty much anything. It just takes a lot of time. And it has surely had a lot of that.

honestly i don’t think this is just about cleopatra anymore, more like the origins of egypt. and their origins did indeed come from africa, after so many civilizations like zimbabwee died out they started moving up that way, i can only remember so much from my African Canadian studies class but that’s what i learned, and i don’t doubt that the artifacts were damaged by Europeans and the English during the slavery days. AFRICAN CIVILIZATION WAS THE BEST AT CRAFTSMANSHIP BACK THEN IN ANCIENT TIMES, IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THEIR METAL PERIOD AND HOW AMERICAN ARCHAEOLOGISTS WERE PROVEN WRONG ABOUT THE ORIGINS OF SOME OF THE BIGGEST ECONOMIC CIVILIZATIONS IN AFRICA. they died out, an inevitable thing, but I could never believe they were poor craftsman as they took so much effort into their art at the expense of their lives. Back then during the slave trade days they would do anything to erase their past heritage so they could be able to exploit them, even give them  English or whatever language they were adopted into , a new full name. They were not allowed to recall their past, for it would all be destroyed.  that’s all I know though so don’t shoot me!

I should be drawing

minecraft distracted me big time. I made so much… now I ‘ll take the rest of my time to draw. I’ve been so hyped on the idea of designing a place where tengu can live in the sky that i went overboard with the village, then I was thinking it would give me an excuse to create a small tengu civilization for fun and I got even more excited. I have so far: a village chief, chief of police squad, tengu boy that secretly practices the dark arts, Astronomer tengu. the whole compound took me a fairly long time, over 5 houses, 4 mansions, a nexus compound, an observatory tower, and a police station with multiple rooms and a dungeon. and four wood and grass areas I had to wait to grow.
