Self Portrait

1. Self portrait will be number one list

I'll take self portrait in the future

A self-portrait may be a portrait of the artist, or a portrait included in a larger work, including a group portrait. Many painters are said to have included depictions of specific individuals, including themselves, in painting figures in religious or other types of composition not intended to depict the actual persons as themselves.

Badui's grandpa

The outer Badui's grandpa, for baduian/badui people it's forbidden to use electricity and electronic equipments

The Baduis also observe many mystical taboos. They are forbidden to kill, steal, lie, commit adultery, get drunk, eat food at night, take any form of conveyance, wear flowers or perfumes, accept gold or silver, touch money, or cut their hair. Other taboos relate to defending Badui lands against invasion: they may not grow sawah (wet rice), use fertilizers, raise cash crops, use modern tools for working ladang soil, or keep large domestic animals. Due to their rigid taboo system, the Baduis have remained very backward even in modern times.
