me LENTO DOLOROSO

header
I drove past true love,
once
in a dream.

like a house that caught fire
it burned and flamed.

and the magician disappeared
as quickly as he came
and with a sound like white magic caught in a black car's blazing trail.

This is the Ayam Cemani, an Indonesian breed of chicken. 
What makes it awesome? Well, it’s black. Absolutely, utterly, black. Black feathers. Black skin and nails. Well, that’s cool right? Well, it also has black muscles, and black bones, and organs that are so dark they are almost black.
This is literally a chicken that is entirely black inside and out. 
Only their blood isn’t black, but even so it is way darker than the blood of other animals.

indonesianhistory:

Portrait of Raden Saleh donning Western garb by Friedrich Carl Albert Schreuel, c. 1840.
Raden Saleh followed the romanticism genre that was popular in Europe in mid-1800s. This made him considered to be a pioneer of modern Indonesian art by the Western world. Despite the European elements, he still expressed Javanese cultural roots in his paintings (see also: analysis for The Capture of Diponegoro).
He was also commissioned to paint Dutch East Indies governor generals Daendels (1838) and van den Bosch (1836).
Young Raden Saleh was first taught in Bogor by the Belgian artist A.J. Payen. Payen acknowledged the youth’s talent, and persuaded the colonial government of the Netherlands to send Raden Saleh to the Netherlands to study art. He arrived in Europe in 1829 and began to study under Cornelius Kruseman and Andries Schelfhout.
It was from Kruseman that Raden Saleh studied his skills in portraiture, and later was accepted at various European courts where he was assigned to do portraits. While in Europe, in 1836 Saleh became the first indigenous Indonesian to be initiated into Freemasonry. From 1839, he spent five years at the court of Ernst I, Grand Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, who became an important patron.
From Schelfhout, Raden Saleh furthered his skills as a landscape painter. Raden Saleh visited several European cities, as well as Algiers. In The Hague, a lion tamer allowed Raden Saleh to study his lion, and from that his most famous painting of animal fights was created, which subsequently brought fame to the artist. Many of his paintings were exhibited at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Several of his paintings were destroyed when the Colonial Dutch pavilion in Paris was burnt in 1931.

"The only people I would care to be with now are artists and people who have suffered: those who know what beauty is, and those who know what sorrow is: nobody else interests me."
