Masking the Dead

Not necessarily the type of accessory I’d want to wear with a Halloween or Masquerade Ball costume. However macabre this kind of mask may seem, it’s still rather fascinating to learn about.

According to Wikipedia, “A death mask is an image, typically in wax or plaster cast made of a person’s face following death, often by taking a cast or impression directly from the corpse. It is a primitive, yet most accurate, form of photography without a camera. Death masks may be momentos of the dead, or be used for creation of portraits….. The main purpose of the death mask from the Middle Ages until the 19th century was to serve as a model for sculptures in creating statues and busts of the deceased person.”

Even back during the ancient Egyptian times, masks were specifically created to put on the faces of the dead. To the living, it was considered to be very fashionable.

 

Famous death masks throughout history include:

Napoleon Bonaparte: French Military leader who died May 5, 1821 from a stomach ulcer.

 

Ludwig van Beethoven: German composer who died March 26, 1827 due to a post-hepatitic cirrhosis of the liver.

 

Aaron Burr: 3rd U. S. Vice President who served during Thomas Jefferson’s first term. Burr died September 14, 1836 from a stroke.

 

Abraham Lincoln: 16th President of the United States. Died April 15, 1865. Assassinated by American actor, John Wilkes Booth.

 

John Dillinger: American gangster who died July 22, 1934. Killed by gunfire during a shootout with federal agents.

 

Nikola Tesla: Serbian – American engineer, inventor and physicist. Died January 7, 1943 from a coronary thrombosis.

 

James Dean: American actor who died September 30, 1955 in a car accident.

 

 

 

Here are a few death masks of some pretty twisted individuals who were criminals that died by execution.

Johann Hatschwanz: Executed for murdering his wife by arsenic poisoning.

 

Johanne Rehn: Decapitated for murdering her daughter.

 

Carl Gottlob Irmscher. Decapitated for murdering his wife and child.

 

 

 

And I wouldn’t dare leave out the death mask of a very enchanting young woman who’s identity will forever remain unknown, but has intrigued so many with her peaceful beauty. The ever so elegant, L’Inconnue de la Seine, who died more than a century ago, but is now recognized as the serene face of CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation), Resusci Anne.

L’Inconnue de la Seine, who died more than a century ago, but is now recognized as the serene face of CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation), Resusci Anne. 

 

 

 

Looking at these faces, there’s a macabre sense of immortality. The eternal slumbering expressions that these death masks possess make it seem as if the individuals will wake up at any given moment. They will forever be timeless in their own curious way.

“Ghostly Petals”

A supernatural perspective on two of Mother Nature’s beautiful creations!

It is that wondrous time of year when everything starts to bloom and being the artist that I am (aside from also being an author), I couldn’t help but take the opportunity to explore this creative moment!

“Ghostly Petals” is a work of art that I’ve recently finished and I couldn’t wait to share with all of you!

Not only is “Ghostly Petals” (and my other works of art displayed on Fine Art America) available as a print, it’s also available as a greeting card, spiral notebook, throw pillow, tote bag, coffee mug, and so much more!

“The Three Lilies”

An enchanting exhibit of Mother Nature’s blooms!

Is a photograph that I recently took of some beautiful orange lilies that bloomed right outside our living room window. I was so mesmerized by the flowers’ vibrant color that I couldn’t resist the opportunity to grab my camera to permanently capture their image. And yet, even though they were already beyond being exquisite in their own lovely way, I gave them a little more glamour by enhancing them with digital effects.

I was so pleased with how it all turned out that I wanted to make “The Three Lilies” a wonderful piece of art that everyone can enjoy as well. “The Three Lilies” is available in various, exciting ways from prints that can be beautifully displayed upon the wall, to your very own throw pillow, duvet cover, tote bag, phone case, coffee mug and so much more!

“Spooky Random Fact: #2”

“Spooky Random Fact: #2”

The ominous number 666….. To many, this number automatically brings fear due to certain beliefs and popular society’s portrayal of negativity. However, according to the Angelic Realm (a realm that I work very closely with), this dreaded number actually has a very empowering meaning behind it.

The Angels (yes, those beautiful Light Beings from above) convey a very important message associated with the number 666. And no, it’s nothing demonic either, so lay that fear to rest.

When the number 666 comes to us, it’s a message for us to take a step back to re-evalute our current condition and learn to let go of the fear and material things that tend to take us off our spiritual journey. It’s a message that we need to bring our focus back to our hearts and learn to listen within so that we can reach a level of higher learning of love and compassion. You can say that it’s like a “warning” message that we are being too negative with our thoughts, therefore the path of our daily lives, and that we should regain control by reinforcing ourselves with the positive energy of love and light.

So, if you ever find yourself seeing this number, don’t fear it. Stop what you’re doing and take a moment of reflection and see how you can change your life for the better by incorporating the power of positive affirmation.

Always remember love and light, my friends!
