"The human body is the most beautiful thing to us, both inside and out." --Nick & Brian Wolfe Inside the Magical World of Bodypainting From fine art to fashion and from advertising to competition, the world of bodypainting is vast and beautiful. With The Human Canvas you will get front row seats to the pageantry of mind-blowing images from accomplished artists around the world. Many of these artists have won the coveted championship at the World Bodypainting Festival and every one holds a special place within this secret, joyful world of creativity and art. With gorgeous images and inside peeks into the minds and processes of the artists, this book will inspire and amaze you. This book was inspired by the World Champion artists Brian Wolfe, who succumbed in his fight against pancreatic cancer in October 2013.

About the World Bodypainting Festival The World Bodypainting Festival in Austria has been one of the driving forces in bodypainting over the past two decades. This event hosts the World Bodypainting Championships and has distinguished and encouraged the art form. Receiving hundreds of hours of broadcast time each year, the World Bodypainting Festival has carried this art form into the consciousness of everyday people on almost every continent. It has brought together a massive artistic community with years of history, creativity and experience. "Imagine a painter who can create an image from an idea in the fullness of color, design and expression, and then imagine this artist asking their canvas to sing, dance or scream." --Karala B.

This collection of essays challenges the traditional patriarchal approach to sacred literature by highlighting gender parity in sacred texts and envisioning the rise of the matriarchy in the future. The authors redefine Biblical Greek words like malakoi and arsenokoitai used in condemnation of homosexuality, and Qur’anic words like darajah and qawwamun, used for establishing patriarchy. One author reexamines the role of the Nepalese Teej festival of fasting and worship of the god Shiva in promoting male hegemony in Hinduism. Other papers examine passages like Proverbs 31:1-31, the stories of Sarah and Rahab in the Bible, the role of Mary in the Qur’an, and the Dharmic conversion in chapter 27 of the Lotus Sutra. This book makes it clear that sacred literature is subject to human understanding as it evolves through space and time. Today, as more women are educated and actively engaged in political, economic, and social life, religions are challenged to redefine gender roles and norms.

For most of the eighteenth century, automata were deemed a celebration of human ingenuity, feats of science and reason. Among the Romantics, however, they prompted a contradictory apprehension about mechanization and contrivance: such science and engineering threatened the spiritual nature of life, the source of compassion in human society. A deep dread of puppets and the machinery that propels them consequently surfaced in late eighteenth and early nineteenth century literature. Romantic Automata is a collection of essays examining the rise of this cultural suspicion of mechanical imitations of life. Recent scholarship in post-humanism, post-colonialism, disability studies, post-modern feminism, eco-criticism, and radical Orientalism has significantly affected the critical discourse on this topic. In engaging with the work and thought of Coleridge, Poe, Hoffmann, Mary Shelley, and other Romantic luminaries, the contributors to this collection open new methodological approaches to understanding human interaction with technology that strives to simulate, supplement, or supplant organic life.
