"A contemporary map we encountered as graffiti on a wall in downtown Beirut representing the Arab World as the hair of a woman. It is the symbol of the group called "The Uprising of Women in the Arab World" or انتفاضة المرأة في العالم العربي in Arabic."

The Paris-based designer Leo Caillard had, as he wrote me, “the idea conception” and took the photographs. Alexis Persani dressed them. (Not actually; it was done on a computer, as you can see here. I know that putting modern clothes on classical sculptures isn’t a new idea. Michelangelo’s David has had “Fridge Fun" modern clothes for years. But the skirts, T-shirts and shorts in these images look so comfortable and fit so well, these ancients torque suddenly into moderns. It’s like these two French artists have developed a new way to time travel. Which has me wondering about the reverse possibility: Beyonce, Halle Berry, Leo DiCaprio given drapes, spears and marbleized — could they pass for "ancient" at the Louvre in France?

"My hair is God’s aura. Everything went up when I got home from the penitentiary. One night I went to lie down next to my wife and my hair started popping and uncurling all on its own — ping, ping, ping, ping! I knew that it was God telling me to stay on the righteous path so he could one day pull me up to be there with him."

Because our hair is never quite complete we have the myth that it grows on after we ourselves are dead. It’s something that defies our own mortality. (via The Secret Language of Curly Hair | VERY ETHNIC)
