Muskrat Love

Her face is from a 1595 painting entitled Portrait of Antonietta Gonzalez  by Lavinia Fontana.  Antonietta (as well as her father, two sisters and other family members) had "hypertrichosis" (aka “werewolf syndrome”), a rare genetic disorder that causes an abnormal amount of hair to grow on the body, including the face.  Antonietta and her sisters became famous because of their condition, and were subject to much public scrutiny, including medical investigations and portrait sittings.

Civilizing the Pottawatamie (A Flipper Demonstration)

Was looking at a collection of E. Curtis' photos at the Chihuly Glass Museum this weekend. The richness of culture was sad to see, given the effectiveness with which we European overlords destroyed it.
