Sarah Garzoni's 'Breaching' Dress is Made From Hundreds of Shark Teeth
Breaching is an installation project by artist Sarah Garzoni: a life-sized traditional 19th century corset made from wax and… approximately a thousand shark teeth. Sarah Garzoni’s most recent apparel creation, called Breaching, will either unleash your inner shark or expose your inner pansy. And why should you be afraid of a dress? Because the corset, inspired by 19th-century designs, was made from wax, plaster and nearly 1,000 shark teeth.
Rest assured, however, that no one will force you to wear this life-sized corset — it’s an installation art piece. The French artist designed and displayed Breaching at the Atomes Crochusan exhibition in Paris. The piece serves to bring attention to the painful, sometimes scarring clothes women were compelled to wear centuries ago by juxtaposing it with a modern fear: sharks.
Oddly enough, this exhibition started mere days before Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, although one frames sharks as charming and elegant, while the other highlights the fish’s meaner aspects.
“You fool. No man can kill me.”
How many times am I allowed to reblog this before it gets weird?
Fun facts: Tolkien constructed this scene because he came out of Macbeth thinking that Shakespeare had missed a golden opportunity with the ”Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn the power of man, for none of woman born shall harm Macbeth” prophecy
Being letdown by Macbeth is apparently a significant factor in Tolkien’s writing because the Ent/Huorn attack on Isengard was the result of his disappointment that the whole “til Birnam Wood come to Dunsinane” thing was just some dudes holding sticks and not actual ambulatory trees.
so he basically took his favorite shakespeare headcanons and put them into his AU fic
This revelation just knocked me over.

Just to be clear: I Do hate those men who are misogynistic in word and action. I have no respect for them in any form. And I don’t consider them worthy of notice/pity/empathy/thought. Just, you know, to be reassuring.
it’s so weird that men can make endless misogynistic comments and not have to reassure people that they don’t hate women but when women, especially those in the spotlight, talk about things concerning women they feel an overwhelming need to constantly reassure the world that they don’t hate men, that they love men.
and by weird i mean a cultural norm to demean women and overvalue men.
