Hello all. Please also visit my other tumblr blogs, Vicarious Vanity and Fine Design.

Earnestyle is my personal style blog.

Also find me on Instagram.

bigtimebellydance:

I am an artist as well as a bellydancer; so when two of my most favorite realms combine, I am absolutely thrilled. ^_^

These are all from the same site where I found my Odalisque image; which I found a few days after posting her- during a stint of further site investigation. ^_^  This is merely a selection of a few of my favorites from the same “Orientalism” page, as there were soooo many pretties, it was hard to choose!  

..I’m not sure why so many of them are topless.. (maybe some Westerners’ images of the bellydancer in each varying era, or perhaps artists’ desires being projected onto their models..?), but as long as you’re not offended by bare, beautiful, curves, I’d highly recommend you surf on over to Onok-Art.  They have TONS GORGEOUS, classical, bellydance-based pieces over there! ^_^

Soon there will be posts w/other more modern belly-art featured (including a few works by yours truly), but for now, I hope you enjoy these period pieces. :)  Woohoo for the great art masters! :D

  28. mystic-rose said: Read Serpent of the Nile: Women and Dance in the Arab World Bby Wendy Buonaventura. It explains the toplessness and Orientalism.
