12 Miniature Models Of Famous Artists’ Studios... | Art for art's sake... | Scoop.it
It’s always fascinating to pore over a photograph of an artist’s studio. The feeling of a space--its architectural style; it’s decor; its general level of tidiness--can help fill in our understanding of an artist and by extension his or her work.

Incredibly Realistic Wood Sculptures Of People Hand-Carved By Peter Demetz... | Art for art's sake... | Scoop.it
Italian artist Peter Demetz has a gift for breathing life into wood, a material that seems hard and lifeless to most of us. His wooden sculptures of people are flawlessly life-like. Demetz's precise and perfect mastery of human anatomy makes his sculptures look like paintings or sketches, and his wonderful compositions and sense of perspective help perpetuate this illusion.

Erika Oltmanns's curator insight, April 1, 7:52 PM

This video is a powerful reminder to not only treat others as we would want to be treated, but to treat ourselves that way as well. There are many small ways that you can try to increase self-acceptance that can make a difference in your life, such as looking in the mirror each morning and actually telling yourself aloud that you are worthy or writing down positive characteristics about yourself on post its, including physical and personality or intellectual traits, and placing them in places around your home for nice, uplifting notes. Even video taping yourself with a positive self-message that you can look back on, may help remind you that you truly are worthy, no matter how you may feel at a given moment in time.

Daveaitch's insight:

Interesting article, and as a father of 3 girls I know which one I'd want my girls to play with. You'd like to think this would make the doll manufacturers look at what they are doing and maybe rethink. After all, the Bratz brand is horrific, and this just highlights how truly extreme they are....
