The Art of Salvatore-Battaglia

Salvatore Battaglia (b.1985, Sicily) studied at Liceo Artistico “Diego Bianca Amato” in Cefalù graduating with a diploma in goldsmithing and an art master qualification. His latest collection pays homage to the cultural wonderland of Sicily with inspirations from Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Norman and Spanish heritages. The artist combines traditional Sicilian Majolica techniques with the use of 24k gold features. The Majolica ceramics have survived centuries and the stories they tell remain as vital, unique and vibrant as the hand-painted ornamentations themselves. Visit his 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.
