I Have more To Offer

An assortment of things

postgraduatepunk:

John Singer Sargent, Pagan Gods, 1895.

Astarte [left], Moloch [right].

In my opinion, the mural ensemble The Triumph of Religion, commissioned by the Boston Public Library, was the only really interesting painting John Singer Sargent ever did. His Pagan Gods, which adorns the north end of the vaulted ceiling, is a great example of a painter from another style accidentally making a Symbolist work.

Mictlantecuhtli, Lord of Mictlan, in Aztec religion, was a god of the dead and the king of Mictlan, the lowest and northernmost section of the Underworld. He was one of the principal gods of the Aztecs and was the most prominent of several gods and goddesses of Death and the Underworld. The worship of Mictlantecuhtli sometimes involved ritual cannibalism, with human flesh being consumed in and around the temple.  The more you know!
