Parting The Veil of Faery, The Colmore Fatagravures

1st Baronet (28 August 1833–17 June 1898) was an English artist and designer closely associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and largely responsible for bringing the Pre-Raphaelites into the mainstream of the British art world.

William Holman Hunt

John William Waterhouse

(April 6, 1849 – February 10, 1917) was an EnglishPre-Raphaelite painter most famous for his paintings of female characters from mythology and literature. He belonged to the later phase of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.


John William Waterhouse (Roma, 6 de abril de 1849 - Londres, 10 de febrero de 1917). Pintor británico. Hijo de artistas, sus comienzos como pintor estuvieron influidos por el neoclasicismo victoriano. En la fase siguiente es un pintor prerrafaelita. Más tarde estuvo atraído por el planairismo de los impresionistas franceses. Si al principio de su carrera se dedicó a temas de la antigüedad clásica, más adelante abordó los literarios, siempre con un estilo suave y misterioso, imbuido de romanticismo, que permiten encuadrarlo dentro del simbolismo. Pintor famoso en vida, su fama decayó durante el siglo XX. A fines de esta centuria se produjo sin embargo una revalorización de sus aportaciones a la historia de la pintura.

Parting The Veil of Faery, The Colmore Fatagravures


A Scottish adventurer, inventor, and photographer named Neville Colmore claimed to have constructed a device capable of "...parting the veil of Faery...". The device, which he called the "Spectobarathrum", produced beautiful photo graphic plates he called "fatagravures", through a now lost process. The original "Spectobarathrum" along with all of the images he claimed to have made were believed destroyed in a fire. Because of my background in anthropology, archaeology, digital imaging, art, Scottish history and as board member of the Traprock Society, I have been asked to examine these materials. I am fortunate enough to have received permission to share some of my preliminary findings here. The current caretaker of these treasures wishes to remain anonymous. (.....)

PREHISTORIC - EROTIC ART:

As we can see through different images, they had sexual intercourse with animals, homosexual relations and more than two people at the same time.

There is o ne sculpture that is emblematic, found in 1908, after lots of research and different epochs being affirmed as the real o nes about this sculpture, now they believe it was done around 24,000-22,000 BC.



It shows a woman with a large stomach that overhangs but does not hide her pubic area. A roll of fat extends around her middle, joining with large but rather flat buttocks, there's no face and seems that at this place there is a hat or even hair rolled up o n the head.



Her genital area would appear to have been deliberately emphasized with the labia of the vulva carefully detailed and made clearly visible, perhaps unnaturally so, and as if she had no pubic hair. This, combined with her large breasts and the roundness of her stomach, suggests that the "subject" of the sculpture is female procreativity and nurture and the piece has long been identified as some sort of fertility idol.



The fact that numerous examples like that of a female figure. All generally exhibiting the same essential characteristics - large stomachs and breasts, featureless faces, minuscule or missing feet - have been found over a broad geographical area ranging from France to Siberia. That suggests that some system of shared understanding and perception of a particular type of woman existed during the Paleolithic.

¿Los prerrafaelistas? ¿Se considera Ud. victoriana? Tuve la ocasión de ver algunas de estas obras en Inglaterra. Aunque dicen que, de todos ellos, el que verdaderamente pintaba era Hunt.

Un saludo.
