Farewell Summer Days

The summer season has come to an end.
It has been a summer I’m sure many of us would like to forget and one I hope will never be repeated. The devastating bushfires which so many lives and homes were lost.  I had several friends who almost lost their homes down around Bega and in the Southern Highlands.  The lost of wildlife which so sad to which our koala is close to extinction. Sydney was blanketed in smoke for months as the bushfires burned making it hard to breathe some days.

Smokey Days

We endured drought and then we had the rain which was needed but only to bring floods. So nature has not been kind to Australia this summer as it says farewell for another season.
As I take my last walk along the beach for summer which is slowly becoming isolated, it’s time to reflect what has occurred. You can feel the nip in the air in the mornings and evening. The autumn months will approach with the leaves on the tree turning a beautiful golden colour.

Erotic Sexual Pottery

My friends recently came back from a trip to Lima, Peru where they visited the Larco Museum which houses ancient artifacts. But in a gallery segregated from the main gallery are 1500 year old year old erotic pre-Columbian Moche pottery which depicts the Adean people’s explicit sexuality.

Spooning

They say it presents the physical act of sex as an affront to the Catholic faith. But the art also suited the Spanish need to define indigenous people as “carnal”, “lustful” and pagan” tribes which would declare war so that the Spanish could expand their territory. The pottery is not of traditional sex but men and women having anal sex, women performing oral sex on men and men masturbating.

Oral Sex

Anal intercourse was accepted and practiced as a form of birth control.

Here are some pictures. Enjoy
