The Aztec CalendarThe Aztecs had two calendar cycles, one 365 days and based on the sun, and one 260 days and based on ritual. They aligned every 52 years.An engraving of an Aztec calendar can be found in the 1699 world chronicle Giro del mondo (Mirror of the World). Volume 6 is entirely dedicated to Mexico and contains information from pre-Conquest sources.By the way, the famous “Aztec Calendar Stone” isn’t actually a calendar; it’s a sacrificial altar that the Aztecs called a cuauhxicalli, or...

I remembered that for many years my perplexity was complete; an...

Photographer Sinziana Velicescu (@casualtimetravel) constructs a humorous, minimal, formal topography of #LosAngeles in her book ‘On the Periphery’, available via @aintbadmagazine at the link in our bio. “I am mostly inspired by abstract art from the 60s, bold graphic design, unusual architecture, and 'place’ itself,” the artist once told us. “Los Angeles is a prime location for the types of questionable design decisions that I focus my lens on frequently, wit...

The Acropolis 200 years ago, as seen by chroniclers Edward Dodwell and Simone Pomardi. The monument has changed dramatically, as both structure and symbol, since this time.“The event…that most directly accounts for the way the Acropolis looks today was its excavation and destruction by archaeologists during the 19th century. The decision was made to erase essentially all material remains from the present back to the fifth century B.C. The medieval and Ottoman buildings that [artist Edward...

dykebrigade: graciehagen: Illusions of the Body was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays the only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.   Within the series I tried get a range of body typ...

fckyeaharthistory: “I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.” - Frida Kahlo
