Asher’s Art Gallery (Every Other Monday)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my Gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some incredible paintings. Now, have fun exploring my Gallery!

  • Mosaic II by M.C. Escher 1957 lithograph 

This is a work of optical excellence by “Dutch Surrealist”, Escher. The piece has many different objects and shapes, ranging from religious icons, to grotesque beasts. His brilliant use of black and white fill in all of the space on the canvas. I especially adore the deep sea fish-like creatures that surround the work. It’s also quite funny to see a random guitar placed in the painting. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

  • Improvisation 28 by Vassily Kandinsky 1912 oil on canvas

This is a great work by “German Expressionist”, Kandinsky. It’s an Abstract work with beautiful colors and wild slashes. There’s also a strange gear in the center of the painting. It’s not only a fantastically unique work, but also one of the first complete abstractions of canvas. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

Info found on yokai.com

Konbanwa, everone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some more fascinating yokai. Now, let’s go on a journey to “The Land of the Rising Sun”!

  •  Hashihime are envious creatures of Japanese mythology. They resemble white robed women that carry five candles. These yokai guard bridges and are very jealous of other mythical creatures. If a person should speak well of another bridge, while standing on the yokai’s bridge, something terrible will happen to them.

  • Okuri inu are ominous creatures of Japanese folklore. They’re depicted as savage ,wolf-like animals. These yokai are found following lone travelers at nighttime. They’re also seen haunting mountain passes. If the traveler unfortunately trips, the Okuri inu will attack, mutilating the body. Because of their dangerous presence, wild animals surrounding the area will flee in terror.

Konichiwa, everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some more yokai. Now, let’s go on a journey to the “Land of the Rising Sun”!

  • Nurikabe are incredibly surreal creatures of Japanese mythology. They’re depicted as weird and bipedal walls with human-like features. These yokai found during the late hours of night, and materialize usually out of nowhere. Nurikabe will block a person’s path and can’t be moved. According to some stories, if you poke this yokai with a stick, it’ll move out of the way.

  • Hitobashira are downright creepy spirits of Japanese folklore. The yokai’s name refers to the gristly practice of burying people alive in important places, like bridges or castles. This was used in the 16th century to appease the nature spirits surrounding the area. It was also said to stop natural disasters from harming castles.

Interesting SCPS (Every Other Tuesday)

(All info found in scp-wiki.net) The SCP society is a team of researchers and scientists that categorize anomalies and objects as well as classifying them. SCP stands for Secure Contain Protect. You start with “Safe” items, which are easily understood, and usually don’t pose a threat. “Euclid” class objects, which are less predictable, and may be sentient. “Keter” class objects are the most dangerous out of the three, and may cause an “end of the world” phenomena if not properly contained.

Hello everyone! It’s Tuesday, and it’s time to start a new post. I’m pretty sure that some of you know what SCPs are, and find them as fascinating as I do. Every other Tuesday, I will be adding two new SCPs to the list.

Final note: Some names/ other things may be Censored in order to protect identities.

  • SCP-021 The Skin Wrym  Object Class: (Safe) SCP-021 is a large oriental dragon tattoo that covers 0.8 meters of the skin. The tattoo is fully animate within the confines of the host’s skin and behaves largely like a normal animal would, albeit in only two dimensions. The tattoo’s movement causes constant pain to its host, comparable and similar in character to simultaneous tattooing and tattoo removal on a large scale. It appears to feed exclusively on pigments in the host’s skin. It can also be fed by tattooing fruits near the body. It can also be transferred between hosts by various forms of physical contact. SCP-021’s captivity is one of the longest in the Foundation’s history at nearly [DATA EXPUNGED] years, and has been very educational thus far.

  • WARNING! THIS ONE IS DISTURBING! SCP-106 The Old Man Object Class: (Keter) SCP-106 appears to be an elderly human, with the general appearance of advanced decomposition. This appearance may very, but the “rotting” quality is observed in all forms. SCP-106 is not exceptionally agile, and will remain motionless for days, waiting for prey. SCP-106 is also capable of scaling any vertical surface and can remain upside-down indefinitely. When attacking, SCP-106 will attempt to incapacitate prey by damaging major organs, muscle groups, or tendons, then pull disabled prey into its pocket dimension. It prefers human prey 10-25 years of age. SCP-106 causes a “corrosion” effect in all solid matter it touches, engaging a physical breakdown in materials several seconds after contact. This is observed as rotting, rusting, and cracking materials, and the creation of a black, mucus-like substance similar to the material coating SCP-106. This effect is particularly detrimental to living tissue, and is assumed to be a “pre-digestion” action. Corrosion continues for six hours after contact, after the effect appears to “burn out”.SCP-106’s “pocket dimension” is seemingly composed of halls and rooms, with [DATA EXPUNGED] entry. This activity can continue for days, with some subjected individuals being released for the express purpose of hunting, recapture, and [DATA EXPUNGED].

Here’s what the SCP looks like

 And here’s the unfortunate aftermath of Agent (Censored) after being released from the pocket dimension. He died one hour after release. Also, I’d love to hear what you guys think of this post, so be sure to leave a comment in the comment’s section below.
