Bring Me the Lizard King

Hi there. The name's Ennish and I am a girl who is stuck in the limbo between having too much time on her hands and no free time at all. My primary interests include anime, music, and David Bowie. Expect to see the majority of my posts involve all of these...and whatever I'm interested in at the time. And maybe some of my own fanart.
-------
Before you ask, my favorite anime is Cowboy Bebop.
-------
I have a special fondness for Berlin Bowie, The Thin White Duke, and Scary Monsters-era Bowie. They will probably make up the majority of the Bowie pictures that I post.
-------
My blog icon is permanent and expresses everything pertaining to my interests. I also didn't make it.

Everyday Objects With Faces Are Awesome

When you walk around and look at everything around you, chances are, you may see a face. It may be human, it may be an animal, but sometimes you can see faces in inanimate objects. This is called Pareidolia: Seeing faces in random things!

Sirin and Alkonost. Birds of joy and sorrow by Viktor Vasnetsov, 1896
Alkonost and Sirin are creatures from Slavic folklore. Alongside with Gamayun, another bird-maiden, they play a significant role in Russian mythos. Their main duty is to ward the Tree of Life. They’re commonly believed to be a fusion of Greek legends, Pagan Slavic folk tales and Christian lore.
Sirin was initially based on Greek sirens, with possible addition of traits characteristic of Slavic water spirits, in particular that of wila. However, she later assumed more positive features, becoming a symbol of harmony, joy and beauty. Sirin descends into world of mortals, singing of incoming happiness. Even in later legends her voice is enticing to the point of being dangerous to humans and Siren can be associated with treachery, insanity and temptation. As bird-maiden is sensitive to loud noises, people would save themselves from her hypnotic song by ringing bells and shooting cannons.
Alkonost is possibly named after Alcyone, a Greek demigoddess transformed into a kingfisher. Her voice possess the same bewitching capacity as that of her sister. Alkonost is typically associated with Hors, the god of sun. Sometimes called the bird of dawn, she brings winds and lightnings on her wings. It is believed that on Koliada (a holiday in the middle of winter) Alkonost lays eggs on the seashore. For seven days after that sets good weather.
