PS - I’m totally making a blanket out of this one.
Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598 - 1680).
Ratto di Proserpina / Rape of Proserpina. 1622.
(Bernini was only 23 years old!)
Galleria Borghese. Roma. Italia.
In ancient Rome Proserpina was the daughter of Ceres and Jupiter, She was worshipped as goddess of fertility and was said to be responsible for the change of seasons.
After Pluto (Hades) had been hit by one of Cupids arrows, he fell in love with Proserpina and abducted her to the underworld in order to marry her. Worried, her mother wandered the earth, searching for her lost daughter, turning the farmlands into desert wherever she went. Jupiter, knowing where Proserpina could be found, ordered Pluto to free his daughter. Pluto agreed but tricked Proserpina into eating six pomegranate seeds from the underworld, knowing this would make a permanent return to the world of the living impossible. Ever since, Proserpina has to return to the underworld for six months every year, initiating the cold season. Whenever she returns in the arms of her mother, spring will commence.
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL STORY!
omg, hahaha wow, okay i will try:
Well everything started with his first years of life he use to have this typical child haircut. he looked like a little monkey
Then we know about him in his teenager years. he used to have this sorta chav, punky hair. which it was sorta cool yeah, look
Then in 2006 he started growing his hair and end up being the first alex long hair, at the end of the whatever tour. here
Then after a break to record the 2 album, al had a hair cut and it looks really short kind of like a beatles cut. he had tha hair cut for a while:
Around 2007 he made the puppets album with miles kane in france. by that time his hair was a bit more longer, summat like this. lovely
And at the end of the FWN tour, (apollo remember?) he cut his har a bit but still he had plenty of hair. this is one of my fav moments f alex hair, watch out.
Now in 2008 he was touring with miles and he get thos the beatles mop again, this is my fav alex hair. really similar to some style of 07 hair:
and a bit longer at the end of puppets tour
and then he went to record humbug at Joshua tree and his hair was long by them, not as long as we know but long
by the time they finish humbug and start properly touring the album he get the massive long hair.
THEN he suddenly decided to cut those hairs down a bit and he looked so fab here
And well, the humbug era ended in mexico and then out of the blue we saw alex with fucking short hair again and ont only that with a bit of lightning on his hair or whatever. it looked amazing
But it didn’t lasted too long, after a while he came back to his normal hair and even more short wow, here
Then they recorded sias at the end of 2010 and beggining of 2011 and alex had the famous presias hair, wow. other of my fav hairs frick, take alook bb
And out of the blue one day in austin in august 2011 he fucking appears with a fucking quiff. the well famous quiff. this is the day the earth changed forever
now he still has the quiff but its different, its not the richard hawley quiff he used to have, its a bit more nice, i liek it better
ohhh and lately he’s starting to use a bit less of gel between concert and it looks amazing as fuckkkkkkkk.
