This is something that slips past the Western viewers- it looks like it’s reaching out for Chihiro, in a malicious way, to the Western viewers. It’s what I thought growing up.
However, now, that I know that it’s a way of signalling for someone to ‘Come here!’ in Japan, the scene takes on a whole new meaning.
That spirit knows that if Chihiro doesn’t eat the food, she will disappear. And it knows if it offers the food, she cannot be cursed as a gluttonous pig because it wouldn’t have been stolen.
Just a unique take when you have all of the context.

#ye that’s why those lucky cat figurines have their paw posed like that #it’s to invite good luck over

He holds me up
Like a babe
Pressing close
I can’t behave
I need to have
This little death
I’m up against
His downy chest 

In the web
Of dizzy leaves
Virgins all
Elude the trees
The chill is flush
With burning flesh
It’s so refined
This little death 

Touch me now
Touch me
The black acres are claiming me
They’re claiming me 

hi guys meet my #2 most played song of all time

Against the Infinite - Crazy Three Dimensional Art by AJ Fosik

You might recognize AJ Fosik as the artist responsible for the cover of Mastodon's 2011 record The Hunter. These pictures are from his solo exhibition “Against the Infinite” currently running until December 21 at the Jonathan Levine Gallery. The coup de grâce of the show is a collection of 30 animal heads on diamond-shaped panels that can be combined to form a giant 30-sided shape called a rhombic triacontahedron.
