Courage" by William Eicholtz

Courage was “launched as part of the AIDS 2014 International Conference in a couple weeks. Its up in public now. COURAGE was commissioned by Yarra City Council,Melbourne, Australia. COURAGE honors the contribution, culture and diversity of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Inter-sex and Queer community. Inspired by the iconic character of the Cowardly Lion in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, “he contemplates what it means to possess the courage to be yourself, no matter who you are.”

COURAGE is also dedicated to the legacy of Ralph McLean (1957–2010), who was Australia’s first openly gay Lord Mayor (City of Fitzroy, 1984), an advocate for gay rights and social justice, and a champion of the arts.”

These days you might send selfies to your crushes, but back in sixteenth-century Florence, you’d have a portrait made of yourself as a Greek hero to send to your beloved. In this case, Duke Cosimo I de’Medici had a painting made of himself as Orpheus, the musician who went to Hades to rescue his wife and who played his harp to calm the three-headed dog, Cerberus, who guarded Hades. The painting may have been a gift for his new wife to impress her with his bravery and devotion to her.  “Portrait of Cosimo I de’Medici as Orpheus,” c. 1537–39, by Agnolo Bronzino

Upon seeing this, the wife went “youve been hangin out naked with a painter for weeks u slut! Devition?! Is that what you call devotion.. Im the only one to see that booty!!” Betcha no one wrote that down in history
