Oh hey it’s back on my dash perfect!  I was just thinking of this the other day!

OHOHOHO wow the Korean alphabet is awesome. The people who designed it were geniuses and were obviously incredibly schooled in the morphology and phonology of their language. HNNGGG

wow

여러분 모두 한국어 쓰세요 한국어 좋음  

한국어, 한글은 보면 맨날쓰는거지만 볼수록,쓸수록 예뻐요..참으로 곱구나’3’♥

ㅇ어머 (감동

짱 이쁜 한국어 쓰세요 여러분

신기하게 가르치는군요 보고 신기했다 

FUN FACT!

IT WASN’T JUST ANY OLD DUDE WHO DECIDED, “HEY I WANT TO CREATE A KOREAN ALPHABET.”

IT WAS KING SEJONG, WHO ORDERED HIS ROYAL SCHOLARS TO CREATE THIS ALPHABET SO READING AND WRITING COULD BE ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYONE, EVEN THE PEASANTS. IT WAS PURPOSELY DESIGNED TO BE EASY TO LEARN.

SO SHOUT OUT TO KING SEJONG, WHO REALIZED BEFORE MANY OTHERS THE IMPORTANCE OF UNIVERSAL LITERACY.

YOU GO KING SEJONG, FOUR FOR YOU KING SEJONG

SO MUCH WIN!

femme-de-lettres:

This is Henri Regnault’s Salomé, from 1870.
Lovely as she is, intricate and shining and surprisingly close as the scene may be, the piece is surprisingly ordinary.
She’s Salome!
Shouldn’t there be dancing, and severed heads?
There’s a sly allusion in the blade and plate, but nothing approaching violence—or even motion, particularly—in the scene.
It can’t have been from any sense of delicacy on Regnault’s part: he painted a deeply gruesome beheading in full detail the very same year.
There is somewhat of a practical explanation in the Metropolitan Museum's comment that “Regnault initially represented this Italian model as an African woman, but later enlarged the canvas at the bottom and right and transformed it into a representation of Salomé.”
But why change an Orientalist genre scene into a depiction of Salomé?
To me, there’s actually a surprising tension to the work because of it. At some point recently, this somewhat static if mischievous-looking woman danced so beautifully that she found herself in a position to command a king.
At some point soon, we know, she will command that king to bring her a man’s head on the very plate she casually balances on her lap.
But for now, she lounges safely, smiling at the viewer like the subject of one of those ubiquitous 19th century paintings of some imaginary and ambiguously foreign harem.
