Black-veined Moth (Siona lineata)

…a species of geometer moth found throughout Europe and parts of Asia. The black-veined moth is crepuscular (active during twilight/sunrise) and feed on various species of herbs, especially Marjoram. During the day they will rest in grasses and are easily disturbed by passing animals. They typically fly during the summer and are present from May to July. The caterpillars hibernate through the winter and emerge in spring and pupate, repeating the cycle.

Siona got to her feet. “Have you asked the Worm why he confines us this way?”

"Leto’s Peace, the Golden Path to insure our survival. That’s what he says."

"Do you know what he told my father? I spied on them when I was a child. I heard

"What did he say’?"

"He said he denies us most crises, to limit our forming forces. He said: `People
can be sustained by affliction. but I am the affliction now. Gods can become
afflictions.’ Those were his words, Duncan. The Worm is a sickness!”

A documentary on Indian-American artist Siona Benjamin’s journey back to her roots.

Hello, Tumblr! I want to share this amazing project with you.

Blue Like Me is a documentary about the art of painter Siona Benjamin and the compelling thematic elements contained in her work. Born and raised in a Bene Israel Jewish community in the predominantly Hindu and Muslim society of India, and currently living in the US, Siona focuses on the themes of cultural, religious, feminine, and personal identity based on her experiences.

Her work draws inspiration from everything from traditional Indian miniature paintings, to illuminated manuscripts, to modern pop art. The result is vibrant, iconic compositions with powerful narratives about finding a sense of home and self.

Producer Hal Rifken and his team, the creatives behind the making of the documentary, have set up a Kickstarter to help fund the project. Their goal is to reach $20,000 by the end of July, and as of now they’re at about $3,500, so there’s still quite a way to go.

If you could make a pledge, it would be hugely appreciated - but if you can’t, please at least pass this post along to your followers! Please help this great project become a reality!

Siona Atreides- The GodKiller

She shares his blood and is the fruit of all his labor if not his loins. She has walked with him in the desert and shared his visions. But she is a different kind of savior one who will sever mankind from the arms of the divine forever; through her actions and through her descendants.

The morning sun reverberated from the bronze sword. There was no longer even a vestige of blood. “Would you believe it, Ariadne?” said Theseus “The Minotaur scarcely defended himself.”

"And everyone thought he was immortal," Duncan scoffed.
