I could go on forever about the tug of war that is recovery and all of the mental abuse you suffer through in order to achieve it but I won’t. Because everybody’s recovery looks different, I have no right to guarantee you a certain picture that you might not be able to paint.
In that case I will leave you with this: no matter how many times you get knocked down, no matter how deep into your disorder you are, there is a light somewhere in that tunnel. Whether or not you have to walk a little further in order to see it, it is there. But please remember that recovery is a choice and it’s one you make every day, every meal. But you can make it, and eventually you’ll start to feel the pride that goes with overcoming your eating disorder. You’ll lose the sick girl identity and you’ll find yourself again. You’ll finally be set free.

Meet the Mona Lisa of the Prado, the earliest known copy of Da Vinci’s best portrait. Similarity in the undersketch of the painting indicates that this was very likely painted concurrently with the original Mona Lisa, by a student of Da Vinci.

There is much controversy in the art world over the question of whether or not to clean the fragile Mona Lisa, but her sister has been restored and some fairly odd later alterations removed to show the original vibrant colors and lighting. Some details, such as the sheerness of her shawl and the pattern on the neckline of her dress, have become utterly obscured in the original, but in the restored copy they’re perfectly clear.

It blows my mind a little bit to look at these two sisters side-by-side and imagine how much vivid detail could be hiding in the Mona Lisa under 500 years of rotten varnish. 

THE COPY HAS EYEBROWS

Your response to a beautiful piece of artwork done by Leonardo Da Vinci himself is “SHES GOT EYEBROWS”. Alright. All intelligent life has been lost.

Yo Snooty McSnotwhine, the Mona Lisa’s vanished eyebrows have been the subject of debate and analysis in the art expert community for hundreds of years, long before your parents squirted water at each other from across the clown car and then honked their bicycle horns to indicate they really wanted to make a smug, insufferable little clown baby together. 

Reblogged for that last comment alone.
