The Midnight Planétarium watch was a collaboration between Van Cleef & Arpels and Christiaan van der Klaauw. The watch is made of 396 separate parts and features the six closest planets orbiting the sun in real time (Uranus and Neptune were left out because you probably won’t live long enough to see either one complete a full orbit).

thebeatmesa said: Do you have information on Caribbean pirates that weren't white dudes? Or slaves brought to the Caribbean who became pirates? Books I'm reading mention that they existed, but don't give me any details.

Pirates

West Indies

I really don’t know who came up with the idea that the Caribbean was somehow devoid of people of color, considering that’s basically the majority of people who lived there. Not that pirates were necessarily from that area, but yeah the ubiquitous whiteness idea is a far cry from the truth. As is the “everyone was men” idea.

Here is an interesting spin on an African figure celebrated throughout much of Africa and the Diaspora, Mami Wata. For those who do not know, Mami Wata (Mother Water) is a water spirit that is the bringer of good fortune, a healer of the sick, a nurturing mother and a complex representation of good versus evil. She inspires a vast array of beliefs and emotions in those who worship her due to the endless possibilities that she represents; her destructive potential and her life-bearing gifts.

Often portrayed as a mermaid, a snake charmer, or a combination of both, Mami Wata is described as a woman of excessive beauty with her most definitive look being long, black hair. It is very common to have people create works of art about her given her physical form and comprehensive history. (more images)
