The Eyes at Sanxingdui

Jamelia and Sanxingdui Sculpture

Some time ago I learned about an archaelogical site in China near a town called Sanxingdui which was discovered in the 1920s. Apparently the composition of the metals and some of metallurgical techniques used in some bronze and gold sculptures there linked them to civilizations further west in Egypt and Turkey, unexpected link given how old it was.

The Darshan of Melani

MelaniI have been looking at this blog post of mine on Google and Isabelle. The photos of the women at the end have to be scrolled through one at a time, and a few times on scrolling through them I sense a kind of grace in looking at them. It is as though the beauty of the pictures is some kind of blessing, that it is some divine kindness which has made the images of those women available to be witnessed. In some way I have come to the conclusion that it is the picture of Melani is the one which contributes the most to this feeling.

Gina Macauley


Preface: I think I conceived partly as a response to a video by Youtube vlogger MsArchduchess, on a discussion between Marc Lamont Hill, Yaba Blay, Christelyn Karazin and Gina Macauley and some quips he and Kamau Bell made on Lupita Nyongo's popularity. I extended it into a blog post and it has languished for some years. I was going to through some unpublished articles and decided to publish it. It actually goes back to 2014 and that is why the topic seems and some of the facts may be so dated.
