the Glorification of Female with Limblessness

American Heritage Dictionary tells us that:

Samothrace: 1. An island of northeast Greece in the northeast Aegean Sea off the coast of European Turkey. The famed Winged Victory of Samothrace, now at the Louvre in Paris, was sculpted c. 200 B.C. and found on the island in 1863.

From encyclopedias, we learned that she is the goddess of victory Nike, and was standing on the prow of a sculptured ship around 300 BC, built to celebrate a naval victory, and was found by a French archeologist in 1863, and now sits inside France. The sculpture is one of the finest in history, a treasure of humanity.

Upon research of this goddess am bumped into this piece from Greece:〔〕(link dead as of 2006. (local copy)), purportedly by the “Editors Association of Macedonia-Thrace Daily Newspapers”, written in 2001, wailing of the looting and for the return of Nike Of Samothrace from France back to her rightful birthplace. The essay is eloquent. However, the human animals under natural conditions do not give to pleas but forces of physics. If the Greeks demand repatriation with sparkling cannons and ships, then the French certainly would give it a serious thought. Either by nature or by history, winners take all. Looting and pillage is a common play in records. As of recent, the most powerful nation in the 21th century the United States Of America in 2003 under George Walker Bush's lead is plundering and pillaging a weak nation Iraq. 〔➤ Photos of Iraq War

sculpture Venus de Milo

This famous sculpture is found in 1820 at Greek island of Melos. It is a marble sculpture, dates to around 130 BC, 203 cm high, and its creator is Agesandros, from Antioch on the Meander. The arms are missing, but one may be upholding a apple and the other drooped holding her garment. It is purchased by France and currently sits at Louvre Museum of Paris.

As you can see, the world renowned statues Aphrodite Of Melos and Nike Of Samothrace so happens are armless. The fact of their armlessness must have contributed to the esteem of their beauty and popularity. This is because, the threat and hostility of human animals mostly came from their arms. Thus, the suppression or open display of arms is often a expression of friendliness. We can see this in for example the arms-up posture of surrender, or the arms up in worship, or the sexual attractiveness when a female presses her open-palms agaist the wall as rendering it visible and difficult for hostile movements. We can also see it in the language, where “unarmed” means without weapons. A armless woman, has immense subliminal sexual connotations. In fact, fantasies of amputated women is a mainstay in at least modern SM (sadomasochism) subculture.

Common postures used by male, and female, as found in the virtual world Second Life. The unfriendliness or imposing air of the folded-arms posture came from the arms, as a rampart in front of his body. While the loviness of the posture used by this female, came from the fact the most dangerous part of the human animal — the hands —are moved to the back.

I asked her why she wears such a avatar, she said she has a amputee fetish. She expressed that she wanted to or fantasize in being one.
