My blog consists of varying things that are of interest to me or are related to areas of personal study, including but not limited to...victorian era, gothic lolita, funeral rituals/memento mori, owls, peacocks, moths, mythology, alchemy, magick/occult pratctices, doom metal, black metal, rarities, old books, anatomy, botany, vintage ads, art, sacred geometry, weird/bizarre things, and much more than I could ever possibly list. I try to find lots of new original stuff to share when I can.

Thank you to all my followers and friends I have made. When I first started this blog it was mostly just to track my interests and share the strange little things that I have a knack for discovering on the internets. But now, like most of you, its an obsession, and I always have fun sharing things and learning new things from all the people I follow, though some of you should talk to me more eh? ;P Have an awesome evening ^_^
English mounting. Museum quality cameo depicting The Allegory of the Night. The goddess Selene is depicted with her main attributes, as the poppies in her hair and the owl holding poppies in its pawns, Moon and star are other two attributes of Selene.
From Wiki: ”Hiroshi Senju (千住博 Senju Hiroshi, born 1958) is a Japanese painter known for his large scale waterfall paintings. These waterfall paintings often focus at the base of the waterfall where the falls crash into the pool below, usually cropping out the top of the falls. As a painter he primarily uses traditional Japanese painting techniques; employing pigments derived from natural materials and applying them to a specially designed mulberry paper. In contrast to the norm of displaying such works in a dimly lit, tatami mated room, Hiroshi prefers his paintings to be viewed under natural light.”
