"We need women who are so strong they can be gentle, so educated they can be humble, so fierce they can be compassionate, so passionate they can be rational, and so disciplined they can be free."

Contemporary Art Week!

Tamara Natalie Madden

Madden lists among influences Gustav Klimt and images of Egyptian royalty. You can view many, many more images of her work here at her official website.

I find these breathtaking acrylic and mixed media paintings evocative of both the Fayum Mummy Portraits and early medieval icons featuring the Black Madonna.

Gyan Mudra / Chin Mudra variation - gesture of knowledge
Gyan Mudra / Chin Mudra is a well known mudra in Hatha Yoga and across spiritual traditions. The mudra is formed by joining tips of index finger and thumb. When your fingers point up to Heaven, it is called the Gyan Mudra, however, when your fingers point down to Earth, it is called the Chin Mudra. The connection of index finger and thumb symbolize elated consciousness. The circle formed by joining thumb and index finger portrays the ultimate goal of yoga.  Unify consciousness into zero or infinite. The three extended fingers represent sattva, rajas and tamas gunas.
The variation indicated in the picture is formed by joining the tip of your index finger with the first thumb joint and applying light pressure on the nail of your index finger.
Chin Mudra is a remedy for mental disorders, insomnia, high blood pressure and depression. Chin Mudra enhances memory and improves concentration. Chin Mudra helps in opening up of psychic centers and stimulates Pineal gland.
Chin mudra has a multiplying effect when performed in a meditative pose. The mudra can be practiced from 15 minutes to 45 minutes.

"A young African negro has been in this city for the last few days who claims to be a Hebrew. He is deaf and dumb and as black as the ace of spades. He carries a pad of paper with him and answers all questions by writing them in Hebrew and Loschen Khodish. What…

It makes me sad to see that they wrote that he was “Deaf and Dumb” okay if he was dumb they why was he able to write in Hebrew and this other language Jewish language? He is just Deaf and NOT dumb, and this is something that I hope that people will understand now these days. 

"Dumb" used here means "unable to speak", which is why he was writing out his conversation.

I think it’s odd you took offense at “dumb” and not “black as the ace of spades”, though…??

I mean if we are making a list of things to never, ever say about anyone ever that are in this newspaper article from 1897 I am pretty sure that’s going to be number one?
