Haunting Porcelain Busts by Juliette Clovis

At first glance, Juliette Clovis’ porcelain busts are striking, peculiar, and, to some, quite possibly grotesque. However, the interweaving of flora, fauna, and  spikes into her busts create a wonderfully bizarre and beautiful series of art work. I found myself enveloped by her spiked-adorned busts, entranced by the gold tips that conveyed a sense of beauty, danger, abnormality, and vulnerability. 

Drawing on the female identity, as well as the representation of women in contemporary society and its history, the French artist creates busts of the female form that transforms into hybrid beings. Her use of cut-up butterflies, birds, vegetables, as well as her use of spikes, help bring to life her vision of the female identity. For more of Juliette Clovis’ work, follow her on Instagram

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.
