Pin Prick

Pin Prick

If you think wearing a pin has no impact, think again. A gaudy style of jewelry called "blackamoors" depict black bodied slaves as exotic noblemen which even today elicit outrage among some. England's Princess Michael of Kent wore a brooch to the Christmas 2017 lunch at Buckingham Palace. The piece which depicts a black Arab in a subservient role stirred up gossip about her being a racist. Although, art museums (e.g. in Florence, Italy) are historizing the fetish as a response to the Moorish occupation of Europe. Meghan Markle, Prince Harry's biracial fiancée was meeting the extended royal family for the first time at this occasion. The image was taken by M. Cuthbert of the UK Press.
