Update: Medusa, club membership #NFT rarities.

The reason we are late to release them is technical difficulties due to the way we created our SC. When launching #ClubGorgon back in February, fairness of minting events and #NFTs distribution was a hot topic. ⬇️
Our aim was to launch as transparent as possible. We looked into different ways of making our mint fair. This was the case, especially because the club spared 300 #Medusa #ElrondNFTs for its treasury.

#ClubGorgon #ElrondNetwork ⬇️
We wanted to show that everyone, including our team gets their membership #Medusa generated as provably random as possible. We chose to mix #NFT number sequences for picking images on mint & so, we can’t predict the next # number while minting event is ongoing.

El pasado mes de abril se encontró en las playas del sureste de #Francia este curioso animalito gelatinoso que muchos allí presentes identificaron como parte de una #medusa.
Pues bien, NO se trata de una medusa (ni parte de una).

Lo que vemos en la foto es un heterópodo o elefantito marino perteneciente a la superfamilia Pterotracheoidea.

Básicamente, un caracol de mar.

Sigue el ciclo artístico #QuieroSuCabeza para el #TwitterCultural.

Observad "La aparición", fascinante y terrorífica, pintada por el gran artista Gustave #Moreau, sobre el episodio bíblico del banquete de #Herodes en el que #Salomé consigue la cabeza de #JuanBautista.

Sigue👇🏽 Image
"La Aparición" es una acuarela del artista francés Gustave #Moreau, pintada entre 1874 y 1876 y hoy expuesta en el Musée d'Orsay, donde capta a #Salomé bailando frente a #Herodes Antipas pero teniendo una especie de sueño o visión de la cabeza de #JuanBautista.

Sigue👇🏽 Image
Os habéis dado cuenta que la imagen del primer tweet y del segundo no son iguales, verdad? #Moreau pintó diversas aproximaciones a este episodio bíblico, muy atraído por la figura de #Salomé, mujer fatal y con gran poder de fascinación, como la #Dalila de #Sansón.

Sigue el ciclo #FormatArte sobre la pregunta: ¿Por qué los cuadros tienen la forma que tienen y miden lo que miden?

Mañana seguiremos con el formato circular, el #tondo (redondo en italiano), pero como aperitivo os adelanto "La cabeza de #Medusa" de #Caravaggio.

Sigue👇🏽 Image
Caravaggio pintó este #tondo en 1597, un óleo sobre lienzo que se pegó a una tabla de álamo redonda, convexa: un escudo decorativo. Lo podéis ver en los #Uffizi, #Florencia.

#Medusa, monstruo mitológico cuya mirada petrificaba, incluso ya muerta, es un tema apropiado.

Sigue👇🏽 Image
El formato circular obliga al espectador a centrar su mirada, a llevar a los ojos al centro.

No es la 1ª vez que se usa a #Medusa como figura central de una obra: aquí podéis verla en un círculo de un mosaico romano del siglo II, en la ciudad de #Valencia, #España.

Tod@s conocemos a las #medusas.
Pero... y si te dijéramos que hay un género diferente a los demás porque se encuentra en el #océano DEL REVÉS.

¿Por qué hacen esto las "medusas invertidas"?
👇👇👇

Está claro que a la naturaleza le encanta sorprendernos, y esta es una de esas veces.
📸Prilfish
La #medusa invertida (género Cassiopea), es una criatura única que prefiere estar con los brazos en alto y su campana apoyada (o cuando nada, posicionada) en el fondo del mar.

@opropriolavo @BonySky #Éris vive frustrada, solitária, infeliz, angustiada, esquecida, odiada e desprezada. Ñ à toa: sua estúpida interferência no banquete olímpico (p/o qual ñ havia sido convidada), jogando a maçã de ouro "p/a+bela", gerou só desgraças: o rapto de #Helena (por Páris) e a guerra...
@opropriolavo @BonySky (e destruição) de #Tróia.

Hoje, seus #descendentes vivem em agonia eterna, sem paz, nem amor; seu #karma é o de respirarem, sofregamente, o pouco da #pseudovida que lhes resta, tal qual como foi para #Medusa🐍, uma das 3 #Górgonas:

A #Medusa resources thread!

These are some of the online resources I used in my Medusa lecture. The main idea was on reclamation vs exploitation of the myth.

I started with the Theogony and discussed Gorgons, M's location, and Perseus decapitating her.
Then we looked at Ovid's version from Met. 4. Change in location, role of Minerva, debate about whether Minerva transforms Medusa "for her own protection."
Then we looked at a whole range of visuals starting with this Medusa mosaic from Dion, Greece.

Useful website: Helen Miles has gathered a bunch of these, from which I took my example helenmilesmosaics.org/ancient-mosaic…

I do all my Zoom calls & webinars with a portrait of a topless activist as my background and “The Revolution is My Cunt” is a saying of mine.

BUT what the actual fuck is this statue and whose gaze is it for?

theguardian.com/books/2020/nov…
Again: nudity is not the issue. What is being conveyed and for whose gaze is.

Why, after years of so few statues of women, is the naked female form of statues being erected for & about women?

Whether it’s a statue for #MaryWollstonecraft in #London or #Medusa in #NYC A newly unveiled statue in honour of Mary Wollstonecraft shoA statue of Medusa showing a naked female dorm holding a hea
And: which female form is being celebrated by those statues?

A cisgender woman’s body that is considered attractive to a heterosexual male gaze.

I reject slut shaming. There is nothing wrong with nudity.

But whose terms is it on and whose body does it celebrate is the Q?
