Goddess of Silkworm by Greenishio Goddess of Silkworm by Greenishio
Entry for a mythological contest held on Gaia. Yeah I know it has been almost a month since the last time I submitted something. I'm sorry~ I'm such a lazy gal. T-T

Goddess of silkworm from Chinese mythology. She's supposed to be wearing the skin of a white horse. There's a story that goes with her but I'm too lazy to find it.

Painted with watercolour. I kinda cheated with the colligraph but it was written by me nevertheless^^; Tweaked and adjusted with photoshop. Colligraph was written on another piece of paper then pasted on the painting (and no that's not what I mean when I said I "cheated.") Oh and I added a layer of pencil crayons.

In case anyone's wondering, the colligraph read "silkworm" and "god"( there's no single Chinese character for goddess.)

The kanji of "god" can be used for male or female. I think it's because ancient Chinese don't really distinguish between male and female that much in terms of writing. That doesn't mean they weren't sexist though. Ha.

In spanish, the they forum of the words, two forums. ellas, ellos. if the group is all female, ellas. if one male gets into the group of a hundred girls, it's immideitly ellos.
Somehow, that reminded me of that..

If I remember correctly, it's based off of latin. Damn those romans. they considered gay politicans to be great because they wouldn't be influenced by evil women. O..o
Now some politicans are taking rights away from gay people, or trying at least.

Greenishio Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2004
Hey, that actually makes sense...the gay politicians not being influenced by women part I mean. XD This is all so interesting XD...well I could say that since none of it has to do with me *laughs*

foxgod Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2004
Ah, but it sort of does, since the past effects the future. When do you think the whole gay hating came from? (( [link] -- don't know where, but that covers the roman hatred of certain types of homosexuality, combining with preexisting jewish..))
and how does it relate to how sexist react with women right now? Why would men fear women so much that they had to control them.. etc.etc., relating history to present is very important, since it helps us to understand now. I also find it very interesting, but I'd hate to live back there. Well, as a man, i wouldn't mind at all.

History makes me dizzy... :faint: There're so much to learn and it's so complex.

I'm glad I'm not attending high school back in Taiwan 'cause if I did, I had to memorize the whole five thousand years of Chinese history. *twitches* Occasionally I'd get interested but more often than not I'd be totally bored. I probably will regret not learning it eventually. *sighs*

*chuckles* I wouldn't mind living as a man any time. :giggle:
