In recent years, feminism, seemingly alien to this patriarchal region, has been raising its head in Central America. In support of their "sisters in arms", European feminists created giant portrait in Amsterdam. Rather, this art object was created by a Cuban artist on their order. Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada.
Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada is one of the most famous contemporary gigantic artists. This Cuban travels all over the world and creates huge portraits of people in different parts of it. As examples of his work, we can mention the giant image of Barack Obama on the sand of one of the beaches of the Spanish province of Catalonia, or the new work of Rodriguez-Gerada, which appeared recently in Amsterdam.
The Cuban artist was invited to this city by Dutch feminists who wanted to morally support feminists from Central America, to draw the world's attention to their problems and to the very fact of the existence of public organizations dedicated to the protection of women's rights in Mexico, Panama, Nicaragua, Honduras and other countries of the region.
Here, commissioned by European feminists, Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada created a giant portrait of a woman from Central America. To do this, the artist needed a free area the size of two football fields.
For several days, he and eighty assistants outlined on the ground on the banks of one of the canals in Amsterdam the contours of a gigantic woman's face, looking with a piercing gaze directly into the eyes of a viewer, albeit a virtual one.
Each time has its own standards of female beauty. What ladies do not go to just to meet the ideal! Plus-size model from New York, Katie Sturino declares war on the notorious "90-60-90".

Today we are already accustomed to the idea that beauty has no size, large brands have finally listened to the wishes of consumers and began to expand the size ranges, and advertising campaigns are increasingly showing photos of ordinary women without traces of retouching. However, on the catwalks of Milan and Paris, you rarely see girls larger than the size XS. And therefore, the loud appearance of plus-size models at the World Fashion Weeks leaves no one indifferent
Why German girls willingly went to work in brothels and on what principle did brothels of the Third Reich work?
Two ancient professions - military and ladies of easy virtue have always gone hand in hand. In order to control an army of young and strong men for a long time, it was necessary to take care of all their physiological needs. It is not surprising that at all times violence was accepted in the occupied territories, although there was an alternative - brothels, in the creation of which the Germans especially succeeded during the Second World War
The history of art, mixed with the human factor, has always been full of various mysteries and paradoxical phenomena. For example, in the history of Russian fine arts there were two painters, two siblings who simultaneously studied and graduated from the School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in Moscow. However, their creativity and worldview were completely different, however, like themselves, they were diametrically opposed both in character and in fate. It's about the Korovin brothers - Konstantin and Sergei
