Since childhood I have been fascinated by the Pillar of the Scourging... the Stake of Torture... the Pillory of Shame...
Depending on the Christian tale of woe that pillar is closely linked to crucifixion for me.

Enjoy the Destruction of Beauty!
In addition to the pdf file here comes the 6th stage of Destruction als pure jpg for the archive.

During restoration work at St Barbaria's Church a remarkable example of thirteenth century plasterwork has been discovered:

pargeting St Barb.jpg

It depicts a passage from the lost Gospel of St Barbaria, chapter XXIV, verses 28 to the end:

28. There they crucified her.

29. And Wragg her disciple fell to his knees, and cried with a loud voice, saying "I say, Barb, I never knew anybody could look so good upon a cross!"

30 The LORD sent down the Angel Jollyrei, who spake unto Wragg, and chided him, and shewed him the bones of the previous occupant of the cross. "Behold, Wragg! Thou art a fool, and a nincompoop the like of which has never been seen in all Israel! For soon shalt thy laughter be on the other side of thy face, for she will be like unto these bones, and I shall have her to myself, for I am the Angel of Death. So there. Put that in thy pipe and smoke it."

31 Whereupon Wragg the disciple wailed, and loud was his lamenting, and all Jerusalem heard it, and most of Judea, for he knew that all good things come unto an end, and he couldn't stay there gazing at Barb for ever.

32 Eulalia heard the fuss, and hastened to Barbaria's cross, and she spoke unto Barbaria, saying, "Is this clown bothering you, Barb?"

33. And Barbaria groaned, and sayeth "Lo, I am forbidden from complaining, but if you could issue a few demerits on my behalf, Eul, verily I should be grateful, for he is a bit of a pain."

34. But Bobinder also came to them and counselled Eulalia that the issuing of demerits was forbidden under subsection 6 paragraph 147 clause 2 of the proclamation of Rome concerning trying to keep some sort of order around there, and why on earth did she think Barb was on a cross in the first place?

35. So Eulalia did not issue any demerits, neither did she complain, but she found a piece of cloth nearby which until recently had girded Barb's loins, so she stuffed that into Wragg's mouth.

36. And so peace was restored, and the Angel departed from them until Barb might be ready for him in a few days time.

Here endeth the lesson. Amen.

Threads on CFs do take on a life of their own, don't they? :)

Fit, Lovely Ladies Crucified was actually set up as a thread to present manips of the images sourced from threads such as the Lovely Ladies Thread and Fitness Girls but (due primarily to a non-specific title) it has more recently become the home of pictures and especially videos from the wider internet.

Which is fine, but I would like a thread which gets back to my original intention of providing a place for photomanipulators who may be inspired by those threads or others on this site to produce images.

So I'll set a few guidelines for this thread, if I may:

  • Original work by CF members only. This thread is not for the reproduction of images found elsewhere on the internet (unless those same CF members have published them on, say Crux Foundation or the now more or less defunct Deviant Art).
  • I'd like to keep it for photomanipulations, please. I love 3D art as much as the next person (though @lbogo will confirm that I, personally, am hopeless at it), but there are plenty of threads for 3D art.
  • Having said that, if artists wish to incorporate elements of 3D art in a photomanipulation then that is absolutely fine! :)
  • Amateur artwork only. No links to paysites or other commercial sites.
Hope that all makes sense!

(The weird date on this post was because I tried to copy posts from FLLC but of course they all appeared before my introduction! :doh: )

I shall start off by copying over posts from FLLC.

most of mine

here I made some illustrations attached as picture or link

A Gospel that sadly never made it into the Canon despite a concerted effort to have it included at the First (and last) Council of Cruxton, held sometime early in the early fifth century. The fear was that it might actually become more popular than the other four gospels, in addition to the fact that no one was prepared to accept giving any such biblical prominence to a rebellious and constantly whining woman, no matter how delectable her tight little might have been in the eyes of the Church fathers.

A sad loss to us all. I did so want to get a spot in a Gospel.

Seriously, Wragg. This was a delight. Great art and a rollickingly clever text that made me giggle from beginning to end.

Ok, here comes another manip I finished last year.
It has some similarity with the former one, but is less destructive and contains most of my fetishes:
- public display and humiliation
- the pillar of the scourging
- fire and hot iron tools
- a ragged loincloth that hardly sheets what it should cover
- whipmarks, blood, sweat and sperm on formerly flawless skin
- lesbianism and lesbian domination
- anticipation, martyrdom, crucifixions

Vika is one of my favorite models...I cannot manipulate her so heavily as you did :) I added a lovely costume on her instead....from my old manip for only my pleasure

View attachment 954363

From my point of view as a pathological perfectionist in all matters technical, this manipulation job can hardly be done any better. Bravo, Cypher!

Fishgirl.

The Roman guards obviously have treated their victim very considerately - they had left the loincloth in place to cover the intimate parts and to protect the virginity of the young woman while using all other orifices...

As it turned out, there is something good about the year 2020 after all. :ARMS1:

You have to take your helmet off to those brave Roman soldiers who fearlessly chose the most dangerous orifice in the pursuit of fun and happiness! :)

@Yupar recently presented a picture by Evgeny Loza, in her thread, 'Crown of Thorns Pictures' -

The female subject stands in a cruciform pose, wearing a decorative, lace-trimmed loincloth and probably the most abundant crown of thorns I have ever seen. Whilst this is not actually a crux picture, the iconography is fairly obvious. Evgeny Makarenko (aka Loza) lives and works in Israel, but he was born in the Ukraine. His subjects include art, glamour and the female nude, and his portraits are frequently imbued with a wistful charm. His work has featured in the 'Lovely Ladies Thread'.

Whilst Loza's Christa is cropped below the knees, I thought she had the potential to be reinterpreted as a full crux figure. The pose was modified by raising the arms and adding new lower legs and feet. I took the opportunity to trim back most of her thorns before adding the cross and an atmospheric background. In fact, the stormy sky reflects the colouring of Loza's picture. By preserving the subject's enquiring expression (and despite the addition of blood and nails) I hope I have retained some of the wistful quality of the original.

The symbolism is obvious, and as you say, it is a charming photograph. The crown, while reminiscent of the crown of thorns, does not seem to have thorns, and the girl is not actually on a cross. The decorative loincloth may also symbolize a counter-Christ, or female Christ which emphasizes life, rather than the death of the male Christ. It's an altogether more optimistic image, but no less enticing.

I thought she had the potential to be reinterpreted as a full crux figure.
And so the image is reinterpreted back to a crucified figure. Her inquisitive expression seems to ask "how did this happen?", which works quite well. The image takes on a different symbolism now, more close to the story of the unjust crucifixion of the male Christ. The un-thorny crown or garland, and the the decorative loincloth could symbolize many things. For example, the notion that women are simultaneously revered, coveted, admired, worshiped, but also vilified, exploited, and dominated.

Both images are excellent interpretations of the subject and both are filled with considerable potential meaning. My proposed interpetation above is not the only one, or even the interpretation that either Loza or Bobinder intended. That is the inherent beauty and richness of art.

Thanks very much for your review and for some interesting ideas, Jolly. I think you're right about the model being spared the ordeal of thorns, although I have not actually identified the plant in question. This appears to be a subjective theme, and I have shown her suffering the supreme penalty as a convicted 'Seditiosa'. But, as you say, interpretation is all about a personal response to the things we see. :)

It is, even by Bob's exacting standards, a terrific image! Yes, the model ticks all the boxes, and has the perfect expression (and one or two other perfect bits as well...) but the way that Bob has drawn it out from the original pose into such a dramatic and breathtaking image must have taken all of his skill.

That's another one gone straight into my 'favourites' folder!

If somebody had just been willing to open his wallet a little, "bakeesh" would have gotten it in. The Canon was definitely not based on merit.
