+Steve Saldivar Are you familiar with the Archimedes Palimpsest? It was featured in an exhibit at the Walters Museum in Baltimore late last year. The story of how they uncovered the Archimedes text from under the prayer-book writing was really fascinating.
I made a YouTube of the more engaging examples I saw of face painting for Dia de los Muertos. Some decided to go full-on calavera. Others only half their face, symbolizing the fluctuating (and fragile) states of life and death.
