New Porcelain Busts from Juliette Clovis

I am very pleased to present you the 4 last porcelain busts of Juliette Clovis : « Mechanitis Polymnia »,  « Millipora », « Black Baccara » and « Sternocera ». This last piece was made by the artist during a residency program at The Insect Museum of Nedde (France). More than 500 real beetles’ wings were necessary to make this stunning piece where the incredible colors of these wings strongly contrast with the pureness of the porcelain biscuit.You can check more pictures of each piece directly on Juliette’s website.

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.
