Origin: Philippines } SIRENA { Beautiful half-woman and half-fish of the vast sea. • “Mga sirena or mermaids are aquatic mythical creature half-human, half-fish; they are known for attracting sailors crashing their ships in rocks. They sing so beautifully that you cannot ignore this mythical creature, when sailors hear them singing their spellbinding song they are mesmerized and the mermaids abduct them. Having said so, they are said to be found in the Philippines in coastal towns facing the Pacific Ocean. Dugongs are often mistaken as a sirena or mermaid for its tails are somewhat identical. Other folklore asserts that this creature takes the life out of drowning men while trying to save them. Incidents of drowning connected to the sirena may be just isolated cases. Proofs of the Existence of sirena have not yet been proven.” (Philippine Mythical Creatures Blogspot) • In my coastal barangay (similar to village) in the Philippines, the sirena are said to live by the northern part of the coast. There’s this coral or stone-like “circular” natural structure on that part where it is said they live in. When I was a kid, I wondered how could they live in or on that structure because I have yet to see those sirena around it. I guess the structure is a portal to where they actually live. • #sirena #philippines #filipinas #pilipinas #mitolohia #mitolohiya #mythology #arte #sining #art #mumuktubre #inktober
For this year's #inktober I've decided to draw creatures from Philippine Myth and Folklore. Today's creature is the Sarangay The Sarangay is known among the Ibanag as a creature with a head of a carabao or water buffalo and a body of a man. They have precious jewels in their ears that they protect and they maul to death anyone who attempt and fail to steal them. It is said that whoever acquires the jewels will have supernatural abilities and will be able to wrestle the Sarangay to submission.

Selene🌙🌑💫 (Σελήνη) Topic: Moon 》The air, unlit before, glows with the light of her golden crown, and her rays beam clear, whensoever bright Selene having bathed her lovely body in the waters of Ocean, and donned her far-gleaming raiment, and yoked her strong-necked, shining team, drives on her long-maned horses at full speed, at eventime in the mid-month: then her great orbit is full and then her beams shine brightest as she increases. So she is a sure token and a sign to mortal men.《 - Hymn to Selene #inktober #inktober2018 #ink #sketchbook #sketch #study #scribble #farbercastell #painting #drawing #traditionalart #moon #moongoddess #goddess #night #mythology #greek #selene #gold #black #hymn #portrait #woman #inking #arts_help #art #realmofgoddesses

Do you know the difference between mythology and history?’ asked Brahmananda. The lady expressed herself in a shrug. ‘Mythology is a set of lies that people rarely believe,’ Brahmananda said and paused. ‘And history?’ ‘A set of lies that people have agreed to believe • Ashwin Sanghi, Keepers of The Kalachakra QOTD : Which is the last book you got signed from your favourite authors?

The art life seems to be feast or famine in every sense, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. But when my brain glazes over in the busy months I always think of a story I heard about @dollyparton being grateful for even the dullest moments of her career - and it helps me remember that being busy in this way is a blessing. Right now I’m deep in the cello cave composing originals for @theatrexcentrique ’s upcoming play Exit the King, which you’ll have eight chances to see between 8th-17th of November. I’m hoping to have CDs available to sell at our shows before releasing a small collection of these songs online. Before that I’m opening for Divina at @gasolinepony on the 25th Oct, hitting up @thetownie2042 on the 27th October for Hallowe’en, and playing @symposiumsydney on the 28th October. Post-Exit the King, I’m at Fortune of War on the 21st Nov, back at the Townie on the 23rd of Nov and joining @queerasfvcksydney for a variety night at @secretgardenenmore on the 24th. Honestly, bar my time Stateside this has been the richest year for me in terms of performance, art, humans; and I’m grateful for all the amazing people I’ve met so far this year - people who gave me opportunities I didn’t feel ready to seek out for myself.

#inktober2018 day 21. Paris🌿 . Added some color ink.. I'm not sure that I got a good result.. 🤔 but ok, let it be. . Кажется я вся отдалась акварельному цветку папоротника и на графику меня просто не осталось.. Последние несколько инктоберовских картинок дались с трудом и результат меня печалит. Но чёрт с ним, иногда надо и страшненькие работы показывать...наверное..😹 . . . #katevigdis_inktober18 #inktober18 #inktober #ink #loveink #sketchbook #illustration #paris #alchemy #pagan #witchcraft #witchbook #paganism #artblog #artbook #artgallery #botany #botanical #darkart #artwork #mythology #magic #poisonous #sennelier1887 #inkdrawing #graphicart #инктобер2018 #inktober_lamy

Narcissus stares at his reflection, while his rejected suitor, Echo, looks on. The son of the river god Cephissus and the naiad, or nymph, Liriope, it was said that Narcissus would live to old age, if he never looked at himself. He had gained many female admirers, entranced by his beauty, but he rejected them all. One of them, Echo, was so upset by his rejection that she withdrew from the world to waste away. All that was left of her was a whisper. It was heard by the goddess Nemesis, who, in response, made Narcissus fall in love with his own reflection, at which he stared until he died. A narcissus flowered in his absence. #narcissus #echo #myth #mythology #insta #instafamous #instagram #nymph #whisper #walker
