"3 in 1" - Funerary Art
Thank you for this interesting contribution, John! Sculptures need to be looked at from various angles, so this is a good motif for this Friday's theme "3in1". The scan turned out well. Some sections in the image below are overexposed.
Both image and note are very informative. I tend to agree with your opinion re the comparison of attitudes towards death between many indigenous peoples and us.
Have a good weekend!
Not sure how long this will stay here on TL once the moderators get out their magnifying glasses, so I'd better get my critique in quickly!
Obviously the locals decided they were going to have a good old time in Paradise.
Considering the poor quality of the film, these images have come out very well in your scans.
A fine assembly of the various components - their placement on the BG is well thought out.
Ooooh you are awful!
Having not thought much about my own demise, I may set to thinking about something like this. Why not? as I hate the Victorian style funerals. Whenever I see some a-top hatted funeral director , stepping slowing before a coffin I want to cringe. No black plumed funerary horses for me.Stick me in cardboard coffin in some lovely spot with a nice couple statue like these; carved with my own and my husband's features of course.
This is extremely interesting - very well composed and presented for the Theme. Excellent educaitonal note, thanks.
Congratulations, very well done.
looking at the photos alone may be cause a deletion from the theme, but with the supporting and very well noted information - i would guess not. nevertheless, this is well organized and well compose. kudoS. y2koSan
The images by itself are not offensive and in the other hand, your note is very clear, its refer an cultural expression. About the images, the three close ups are good, the composition, the exposure and the POV are ok, and the full tumb let us understand the motive.
It is really interesting contribution to the theme.
Well this image is quite an eye opener, I dont mean froma sexual POV but from the fact that we can learn so much about other cultures and ideals. Thats one of the really great things about this site in my opinion.
4 well shot images from varied POV giving a nice overall compo with neatly balanced framing too.
TFS and for joining in the theme
kindr regards Helen
Risque art, not a bad way to go I would say;)
Reminds me of some well endowed statues we saw in Greece once.
Thankyou for the interesting note too.

A good study of a non western culture. A good presentation style (although I'm not enamoured by the brown backing colour!) and some superb details. If anyone is offended by this then perhaps their horizons need to open up more!
Thanks for sharing
