“white legs” by Mari Katayama

Suffering from congenital tibial hemimelia, Katayama had both legs amputated at age of 9. Since then, she has created numerous self-portrait photography together with embroidered objects and decorated prosthesis,
using her own body as a living sculpture. Her belief is that tracing herself connects with other people and her everyday life can be also connected with the society and the world, just like the patchwork made with threads and a needle by stitching borders.

Boscoreale Frescoes of the villa of P. Fannius Synistor

Boscoreale was located north of Pompeii and was destroyed in the cataclysmic volcanic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 CE. The frescoes of and the villa itself were buried under volcanic ash. Not only was the discovery of these frescoes important is preserving part of Roman antiquity, but they show the artistic movement of the Second Period in Roman fresco painting, as well as highlight the affluence lifestyle of this Roman family. 

These pictures were taken my friend (hutchhitched) in our trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC in the spring of 2013. Please do not remove the credit for these pictures if reblogging. Thank you.
