Ceramic artist Brett Kern is best known for making inflatable dinosaurs out of clay. That's arguably enough of a "win" on its own, but his latest project, a series of pop-culture characters spoofing classic sculpture, is just too amazing to handle. We want them all. The series is inspired by the Hellenistic period, one of Kern's favorite slices of art history, which was marked by the death of Alexander The Great in 323 B.C. "I admire them becau...

No corrections on mimeo because the impact created a plate. Whack, whack, whack.
But still, how cool. Reminds me of a lawyer's office where they had deeds from London on vellum with beautiful writing and seals. I drooled a bit.

In an unexpected discovery, a research team of scientists and art conservators has found an unusual use of the pigment Egyptian blue in Roman-era Egyptian mummy portraits. No blue is visible to the naked eye in the paintings, but when the researchers used analytical tools for an in-depth study, they discovered the ancient artists used the pigment as material for underdrawings and for modulating color -- a finding never before documented.

The spectacular and generous life of Syrian archaeologist Khaled al-Asaad came to a brutal end at the hands of ISIS this week, but his work demonstrates why knowledge of history is important to today's conflicts.

In pictures: How Ancient Bones Have Helped Solve Historical Mysteries
Thousands of of Napoleon's soldiers, who perished during the army's 1812 retreat from Moscow, were buried in mass graves in Vilnius, Lithuania. A study of the skeletons, discovered by construction workers, reveal an army decimated by hypothermia,  typhus and starvation.

+Anas Suhaimi It's not just that she is pretty, it's the love she gives to the long-dead anonymous man, bringing him back into sunlight. The picture is strong enough to have a life of itself.
