Fertility Goddess (Yakshi)
At the Museum of Fine Art, Boston.
Northern India, second-third quarter of the 1st century A.D.
Yakshis and their male counterparts, yakshas, are semi-divine nature spirits believed to bring good luck, wealth, and other blessings such as the birth of children. They were worshipped in India prior to the development of Buddhism and were placed on early Buddhist monuments to attract good furtune—and converts—to the new religion. The yakshi’s ripe body and unabashed femininity emphasize her role as a source of fertility.
This figure once formed part of a bracket on one of the four large gateways of the monumental railing surrounding the Great Stupa at Sanchi. Originally she reached one arm upward to grasp the branch of a fruit-bearing tree
This is for all the girls out there who post pictures of skinny ass bitches.
Do you know who this picture is of? That’s Marilyn Monroe. They’ve considered her the most beautiful woman in the world. She’s gorgeous, right? But look at her stomach. Is it completely flat? Does she not have love handles? Does she have perfect long skinny legs? No. She doesn’t. And wanna know something? Her pants size was a size 9. She wasn’t some fucking 00. 1. She had CURVES. You all worry about your pants size and your weight when, in reality, who cares? Why not live your life and be happy instead of counting calories in your head? Trying to “be skinny”? You think losing weight it going to automatically make you feel better? It wont. No magical fairy is gonna come flying out of the fucking wood work declaring, “You’re now officially hot! Boys love you now! You can be accepted by society!” No. Utter, bullshit. You’re fucking beautiful; it’s society thats fucked. Love yourself because if you cant love yourself you cant love anybody or anything else. Be free and be happy. Fuck what the media says, you want that double cheese-burger with bacon? GO FOR IT. Until your weight starts to affect your health, you’re perfectly fine to eat what you please ♥
Except for the fact that a double bacon cheesburger is absolutely TERRIBLE for your health. So while it’s great that you’re preaching for people to love themselves, don’t preach and tell people to eat whatever the hell they want. Just because you want it doesn’t mean it’s healthy. You can be healthy and not worry about your weight.
You can also be healthy while occasionally indulging in something unhealthy. A double bacon cheeseburger ONCE IN A WHILE won’t kill you, and it’s delicious.
