  3. There is yet another and more disastrous consequence arising from this unscriptural notion—women being educated, from earliest childhood, to regard themselves as inferior creatures, have not that self-respect which conscious equality would engender, and hence when their virtue is assailed, they yield to temptation with facility, under the idea that it rather exalts than debases them, to be connected with a superior being.

Elizabeth Catlett, Mother and Child, 1944
From the Metropolitan Museum of Art:

The famous sculptor Elizabeth Catlett has also been a prolific printmaker throughout her long career. This compact image of mother and child embracing looks, in fact, as if it could have been carved from wood or stone. Taking advantage of the various tonal gradations produced by the lithographic process, Catlett articulates the planes of the mother’s head with deep shadows and bright highlights. The subject of maternal love and protection is one that the artist has repeated many times in both sculpture and prints. The pose of mother and child (indeed just the mere subject itself) immediately calls to mind religious representations of Mary and the Christ child. But to Catlett, this imagery had a secular meaning, which she wrote about in 1940: “The implications of motherhood, especially Negro motherhood, are quite important to me, as I am a Negro as well as a woman.”

    I found some of the “notes”/study guides I drew for the Anatomy class I took three or four years ago. Maybe these diagrams can be useful to someone else!

    Most of the drawings are labeled with directionals — A/P for Anterior and Posterior, R/C for Rostral/Caudal, and I/S for Inferior/Superior. Circle with the dot means coming toward you, circle with the x means going away from you.

    The Burning Monk- Thich Quang Duc (1963) sat down in meditation position at Saigon. He then poured gasoline all over his body and set himself alight. He maintained his calm meditative position and did not even make a sound while his body burned and then within a few minutes toppled over. His body was consumed but his heart remained intact. It was placed in the Reserve Bank of Vietnam and is called the Symbol Of The Holy Heart.

    He wanted to show people that we can do incredible things when we practice mindfulness. He also wanted to show the world the injustice that was being perpetrated on the Buddhist religion and community by a repressive regime. Needless to say, it worked pretty well and the government softened up on the Buddhist. He is a remarkable symbol of the incredible power the mind holds.

    It’s important to say that he did this in response to an oppressive regime originally supported by the US. Ngo Dinh Diem (“President” of South Vietnam) was a catholic who was supported for his strong anti-communist stance. His election was rigged. He was later killed in a coup.
