Spent my night in front of an artist. So hard to sit still, but the results were incredible.
Charcoal drawing by Kaitlyn Ashley Rose
New Zealand-based photographer Amos Chapple is a name you might recognize from his intimate look inside Iran that we shared just over a year ago. Today, he’s back on PetaPixel with a series of stunning images from Meghalaya, India — a village known as ‘the wettest place on Earth.’
The Hours of Catherine of Cleves (Morgan Library and Museum, now divided in two parts, M. 917 and M. 945, the latter sometimes called the Guennol Hours or, less commonly, the Arenberg Hours) is an ornately illuminated manuscript in the Gothic art style, produced in about 1440 by the anonymous Dutch artist known as the Master of Catherine of Cleves.
Zahnwurm [Tooth Worm]
Anonymous French artist, 18th century, carved ivory image of a human tooth. This carving shows a vicious, demonic worm, which had settled down as a parasite within the tooth. The toothache agony is dramatically emphasized by the tiny image of a human being held in the worm’s grasp. The other side of the tooth even depicts tiny humans among the flames of hell. As an anonymous folk-art carving, it captures the drama of pain and ascribes the discomfort to a vividly imagined source.
