….there’s a log-in queue for Battle.net??
What is this, the 90’s?
Another sculpt nearly finished for the next round of mold-making! This is the cute little nose for a leaf-nosed bat design. It’s going to be sanded to smooth out a few rough spots and I think I’ll be shortening the tip of the chin, but it doesn’t need much more work. I’m planning to do a faux taxidermy treatment with these guys, and I can’t wait to get the first one put together!
Q:Except if you're not native american who's culture includes animal totems. Many native cultures are closed and even more are not comfortable with non natives 'exploring' their cultures, or rather, bastardized versions of their cultures.
Well, see, as long as you don’t specifically say “Native American Animal Guides” or something, you’re usually fine. Spirit Animals and such are actually a universal thing. What would be very inappropriate would be, say, doing a pow wow or something like that.
What would be wrong is using feather headresses in your practice, or other exclusively native items.
$50 internet dollars says that anon is a white person.
Like, if you’re using a specific organized religion that is specifically closed to outsiders, and I’m talking specific beliefs, prayers, phrases, and deities belonging to one organized religion, then yeah you probably shouldn’t. But the idea of a “spirit animal” is INCREDIBLY BROAD. This goes for so many spiritual symbols that white teenagers like to screech “appropriation” over.
There are also plenty of religions that openly and actively welcome exploration from outsiders.
Like, don’t be an asshole and don’t jump on spiritual symbolism to be trendy/edgy, but just because certain specific cultures use the very broad idea of “spirit animals” doesn’t mean they’re off-limits to everyone else.
