The Sanskrit word for the female aspect of the divine. ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devi )
The word conveys one-half of the way women have been portrayed by men in art since time immemorial. The other half is of course less sacred: the "loose woman." I guess the latter depiction is the other part of what's been called the "madonna-whore" complex. ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madonna%… )
Maybe there should be a website where one can discuss this archtypal male ambivalence to the Fairer Sex. But such a site would have to have a catchy name. What could it be called?
How about "Devi an' Tart", short for "Devi and Tart"? I don't know if apostrophes are allowed so maybe we can just squish it together to get "deviantart".
I wonder if that name has already been taken.
