Faiyum portraits first realistic painting on Earth
These wonderful portraits by unknown artists painted more than 2 thousand years ago, not for viewers and museums, were in fact, a kind of passport photo for afterlife. Egyptians were afraid very much that the gods in the afterlife would not be able to identify them because of the failure of embalming. Such realistic portraits were to be buried with the dead. Currently, there are about 900 funeral portraits found in the necropolis of Faiyum. Thanks to the dry Egyptian climate, many portraits are very well preserved, and, in most cases, even the paint looks still fresh.

Dutch self taught photographer Henri Senders was born on December 25, 1958 in Papendrecht, the Netherlands. He first took camera in 2006 and started taking photos not asking himself questions about the technical aspects of photography. “I just learned making photos by doing shoots, looking at the screen of my camera and making mistakes”.

The tomb of French journalist Victor Noir (1848-1870) in the Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris has become a symbol of fertility. Victor Noir was handsome and loved by women, but killed at a a duel at the age of 22. The realistic bronze statue by sculptor Jules Dalou has become the most popular memorial for women to visit the famous cemetery. According to the urban legend, a particular part of Noir’s body showed odd signs of life in the morgue. And if a woman kisses the statue on the lips, rubs its genital area and places a flower in the hat, it will give her a husband within a year. Besides, this will enhance fertility, and even bring a blissful sex life. That’s why these parts of the oxidized bronze statue are well-worn and shiny. The authorities tried to erect a fence around the statue of Noir in 2004, but thanks to the female protests, the fence was removed.
