    Day 290: My Environment or the things with which I surround myself

The kids on a Unicorn
We visited Cosi today to experience the Mythic Creatures exhibit before it closes in about a week. It pairs nicely with the dinosaur exhibit just down the hall. So glad we made the time to go. Learning and  playing alongside the kids is one of my favorite things to do.

    Wonderful late 18th century robes and a coat @fashion_museum_bath . The gown to the left already shows the high waist and machine-printed cottons that dominate early 19th century fashion.

    Some people will tell you that not everything has to *mean* something else. Sometimes something just *is* what it is, they’ll tell you, probably at a party. Don’t listen to them. They’re not listening to you. And don’t go to parties. #materialculture #phenomenology #parties #meaningfulquotes 🎉

    This is a packet of Appalam (Tamil for Papadum - a crispy accompaniment to an Indian meal) with a brand image of a Hindu goddess - Ambika ( the consort of Lord Shiva).
.
In India, product branding often adopt religious motifs for various reasons such as to convey the religious commitments of the manufacturer, to indicate purity of the product, and for identity formation. For example, images of Lakshmi are commonly used to sell lottery tickets. Hanuman (a monkey-faced deity) is the mascot of a South Indian courier service - ABT - to indicate efficient and fast delivery.
.
The use of these sacred images in a profane context, particularly in a situations that are not so connected with the basic function of religious art, points to the secular-sacred engagement in commercial spheres and emerging trajectories of religious iconography.
.
This increasingly visible sacralisation religious motifs in branding and the following commercialisation of religious symbolism is a fascinating area of research. Such studies can possibly unveil the myriad dimensions of the entanglement between the sacred and the profane as well as the emerging behaviours in multi-religious contexts.
