Examples of dogs represented in ancient Mexican art.

All of these artifacts date from 200 BCE to 500 CE. The first is from Nayarit, and the rest are from Colima. The dog in last sculpture is shown to be wearing a human mask.

Handmade Woven Tapestry - “Holding Sight”
i love nazar charms, and although i still don’t have a working definition of what the “evil eye” is, i think you should probably protect yourself from it just to be safe.

My friend Liz made a cool weaving!

Votes for Women 1911
Artist B.M. Boye

On 10 October 1911, Proposition 4 of 1911 (or Senate Constitutional Amendment No. 8)  granted women the right to vote in California for the first time. It was proposed by the California State Legislature and approved by voters in a referendum held as part of a special election on 10 October 1911. California became the sixth U.S. state to adopt the reform. Nine years later women’s suffrage was recognized at the federal level by the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This prohibited both the federal government and all of the states from denying women the right to vote.
