Paris. Pot plant street art.

From the 8th of May to June 2nd, tourists are invited to Sicily’s pottery town to admire the floral designs that stretches from the bottom of the stairs all the way to the top. They can even walk through the maze of potted flowers and see every detail up-close.

Located at Barcelona's Poblenou Cemetery, this magnificent sculpture, titled Kiss of Death (El Petó de la Mort in Catalan and El Beso de la Muerte in Spanish), depicts death (in the form of a winged skeleton) planting a kiss on a young man's forehead. The epitaph bears famous verses by one of Catalan's greatest poets, Jacint Verdaguer: “And his young heart can not help; in his veins the blood stops and freezes, And encouragement lost faith embraces, Fall feeling the kiss of death.”
Beautiful sculpture: The Kiss of Death located at Barcelona's Poblenou Cemetery.

David R. Hawkins, another recent leader in the field of consciousness research, summarizes this new theory as follows: “Our brains mathematically construct concrete reality by interpreting frequencies from another dimension, a realm of meaningful, patterned, primary reality that transcends time and space. The brain is, therefore, a hologram interpreting a holographic universe.”

Mata Hari (1876-1917) Born in the Netherlands, she convinced her European audiences that she was a Javanese princess. She often stripped until she was almost naked while dancing. She may have spied for the French during WWI. After the French intercepted a suspect message, she was accused of spying for the Germans and executed by firing squad.

#MataHari was a Dutch exotic dancer, courtesan, and accused spy who was executed by firing squad in France under charges of espionage for Germany during World War I. The idea of an exotic dancer working as a lethal double agent using her powers of seduction to extract military secrets from her many lovers made Mata Hari an enduring archetype of the femme fatale. Photo taken in 1905.
Mata Hari In 1917, Margaretha Zelle, the spy better known as Mata Hari, was executed by firing squad. Her skull became part of the collection at the Museum of Anatomy in Paris. In 2000, the museum's archivists discovered that the skull was missing, probably stolen. The case remains unsolved. I wondered: Why would anyone steal a skull? Or even want one? Little did I know. Skull collecting is a veritable subculture. One man's macabre relic is another man's Roger Maris sixty-first home-run ball. And craniomania is nothing new. In Cranioklepty (Unbridled Books, 2009), author Colin Dickey explains: "From 1790 to the mid-nineteenth century, interest in phrenology sparked a bizarre and intense fascination with the human skull, and in particular the skulls of great men." Beethoven's skull It drove other men to skullduggery, literally. Notable victims include composers Franz Joseph Haydn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and English philosopher Thomas Browne. According to Dickey, Browne stands as an icon in the history of cranioklepty because of his concern over the desecration of his final resting place. "Who knows the fate of his bones, or how often he is to be buried?" Browne wrote, adding, "To be gnawed out of our graves, to have our skulls made drinking-bowls, and our bones turned into pipes to delight and sport our enemies, are tragic abominations." In the course of my investigation of this realm, I learned that Ludwig van Beethoven's skull is for sale. The seller is California businessman Paul Kaufmann, who first became aware that his family possessed the item in 1990. While searching among his late mother's possessions, he happened on an ancient, pear-shaped box labeled "Beethoven." Years of investigation by historians and scientists make a compelling case that the box was labeled accurately. Exhibit A: Kaufmann's great-great uncle was a physician closely involved in the 1863 exhumation of Beethoven (and Franz Schubert) largely for scientific study; according to several accounts, the physician kept Beethoven's skull. Exhibit B: Tests of existing strands of the composer's hair point to a DNA match. For Exhibits C through Z, see Dickey's book. According to Dickey, it's difficult to place a cash value on Beethoven's skull. In 1978, a skull purported to belong to theologian Emanuel Swedenborg sold at Sotheby's for $3,200. Kaufmann expects to get $100,000. "Out of respect for the dignity of Beethoven," Dickey says, "I think most people would be happy to see [the skull] go to some resting place." An obvious choice would be Vienna's Central Cemetery, where the rest of Beethoven's body is interred. Either way, there is new meaning in the Chuck Berry lyrics "Roll over Beethoven and tell Tchaikovsky the news." Mata Hari's execution by firing squad, October 15, 1917 Note: There is lots of phrenology and other skullduggery in the novel 7 Grams of Lead.

Sacha Goldberger | Awesome Cosplay Takes Star Wars, Superheroes Back To The 16th Century
Darth Vader - French photographer Sacha Goldberger's photography series Super Flamands — translated as Super Flemish — reimagines superheroes and sci-fi icons posing as 16th century Flemish paintings. He used a team of 5 costume designers, 7 makeup artists, 5 hair dressers and more than 60 actors to model for his photographs. Digital imaging was used by artists Pierrick Guenneugues & Sebastien Maillard, but each portrait is the product of countless hours of real, live makeup and prosthetics.

Superheroes Reimagined as 16th Century Paintings - My Modern Met. What would it look like if Superman was born in the 16th century? What if the Hulk was a Duke? These are the questions photographer Sacha Goldberger asked himself when he created this playful new series Super Flemish. Some of our favorite pop culture characters like Darth Vader and Snow White got the Flemish treatment as photos of them resembled 16th century paintings.
Sacha Goldberger is the French artist who dressed up his 91-year-old grandmother Frederika as a superhero to lift her spirits. His new photographic exhibition, Super-Flamands or Super Flemish, also has a superhero theme. The work, which was exhibited at the School Gallery Paris earlier this month, imagines how super heroes would have looked if they were born in the 16th century and were the subjects of classical Flemish paintings.
