Maria Surkova

The sinuous inks of Russian artist and illustrator Maria Surkova portray wise women accompanied by mythical, sometimes grotesque animal familiars. No matter how disgusting these zombie elk, fish and wolves may seem, they guard their human allies ferociously. Maria’s women, in turn, appear to be a part of nature and the cycle of death and rebirth, carrying an ancient strength in their eyes. They are not afraid - they tame wild horses effortlessly, take care of wounded predators, and live alongside their animal companions in peace.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
