Photographer Charles Freger has traveled through 19 European nations to gather pictures of impressive costumes from pagan rituals that have survived to this day. The series, entitled “Wilder Mann,” inspires images of an older, wilder and more tribal Europe filled with wild beasts, bonfires and pagan gods. Website: charlesfreger.com
Pagan Rituals still practices in Europe- impressive! No burning man needed.
Minnie Woolsey (1880 – after 1960), billed as Koo Koo the Bird Girl, was an American side show performer. She suffered from a rare congenital growth skeletal disorder called Virchow-Seckel syndrome, which caused her to have a very short stature, a small head, a narrow bird-like face with a beak-like nose, large eyes with an antimongoloid slant, a receding jaw, large ears and mild mental retardation. In addition, Woolsey was bald and toothless. She appeared in the 1932 film Freaks.
