SANGUINE

[NSFW] Sam, of Toronto. . -------------------------- Focus on the beautiful, the disturbing and the sublime: human form, photography, classic art or art with a return to the classical style, myth, legend, religious icon, and fantasy, historical fashion, the macabre, animal life, and all that may lie outside or between. Guilty of unpopular opinion and the odd gif here or there. You have been warned._____________ _________________________ I'm a 'sometimes artist', when I'm not fighting myself.

“This woodcut of the southern sky is based on maps of the stars drawn by an anonymous artist living in Nuremberg in 1503. Recalculated to reflect the stellar positions of 1515, Dürer’s celestial maps were the first ever published and attest to the role that Nuremberg played as a center for printing, as well as for the manufacture of scientific instruments.”
