Anonymous, Sor María Josefa de San Ignacio (Clarisa), 1771 From the write up at Museo Nacional de Colombia: "Women of the colonial elite had two choices: the convent or marriage. Neither option was a personal choice, a girl's father chose his daughter's fate. Nuns constituted the part of the social body designated to suffer for the salvation of the rest, thus the importance of mortification and suffering; God rewarded these societies out of which flowers of sanctity arose: Rose of Lima, The White Lily of Quito, Marianne de Jesus; and the Lily of Bogota, Gertrudis of Saint Agnes. In the mid-18th century it became customary to paint these flowers of sanctity, women who lived mortified and exemplary lives and whose sanctity was famous by the time of their deaths. They were buried standing, dressed in the habits of their order. Some of them were laid to rest with their heads on a brick, symbolizing extreme penitence, others with their heads on a pillow. The medallion on their chest indicates to whom they were consecrated on the day they took their vows. The face reflected a person's virtues and flowers illustrated the specific virtue for which they were known while alive. The red rose symbolizes passion and mortification the iris, chastity; the carnation, love; the lily; purity, particularly in the imitation of devotion to the Virgin Mary; the white poppy, sainted ignorance and the red poppy, devotion to Christ; jasmine represented elegance, grace and virginal kindness; violets, humility. If they were crowned upon death, this meant they had achieved their reward: eternal union with Christ, their husband, to whom they were joined in spiritual "nuptials." Painting them in their transition to this new life represented the "crowning" of this culminating moment in their lives, the crown represented their virtues" I think the paintings are both creepy and beautiful. #colomboia #catholicism #nun #flowers #oilpainting #portrait #deathmask #deadnun #mortification

The death mask of Filippo Brunelleschi made by his step-son on April 15, 1446. He was an Italian designer and a key figure in architecture, recognised to be the first modern engineer, planner and sole construction supervisor. He was one of the founding fathers of the Renaissance. He is generally well known for developing a technique for linear perspective in art and for building the dome of the Florence Cathedral.
And here’s the reverse side of previous post wherein you can see the architecture of the piece with wiring tying the main struts together woven within. #copper and other #metal #wire with #masking tape #cardboard & #papiermache #mementomori #deathmask #fun

❝As death, when we come to consider it closely, is the true goal of our existence, I have formed during the last few years such close relationships with this best and truest friend of mankind that death's image is not only no longer terrifying to me, but is indeed very soothing and consoling. ❞ – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ___ This illustration is based on what could be a copy of Mozart’s death mask. It has been recorded that Mozart’s death mask was made by Count Josef Deym von Stritetz on December 5, 1791 shortly after Mozart’s death on that day. Like all such masks of its time, Mozart’s death mask was likely made of gypsum. Neither the original, nor a copy reportedly made for Contstanze Mozart survives. The death mask in this post is reported to be an unauthenticated bronze copy which was discovered in 1947. It is on display within Mozart’s home in Vienna, Austria. Then there is the controversy over Mozart’s death mask. According to legend, Count Joseph Deym von Stritetz made a plaster cast of Mozart’s face upon his death and subsequently exhibited the death mask in his gallery/museum, placed on a wax figure dressed in fancy clothing. When the Count died in 1804, the mask went to his widow and upon her death in 1821 it vanished. ___ • • • • • #diedyoung #amadeuslive #wolfgangamadeusmozart #deathmask #mozartsrequiem #diedtooyoung #requiem #mozartmusical #composerlife #scandinavianillustrators #deathmusic #contemporaryillustration #norwegianart #musicillustration #symphonyorchestra #illustration_daily #musicandart #quotesworld #scribbleportrait #depressingart #darkmood #classicalmusician #instaillustrate #depressingpost #mozartoperarock #photoshopaction #photoshopactions #philharmonic #symphony #amadeusmozart

“His smile in death was the result of active hope, self esteem and firmness. No doubt in some degree, too, it arose from the calm of his mind under the pressure of the pious offices of the priest.” .

Rough early funerary mask. Did I say it’s both rough and early? Figured I’d post it since it’s been a while. I’d like to make the final in all-natural and biodegradable paper, glue and paint. #mask #art #chavant #clay #sculpt #sculpture #face #humanface #funeral #funerary #deathmask

Ce visage est celui d'une inconnue. Masque mortuaire d'une anonyme décédée dans des circonstances floues. Pourtant, ce masque serein, cette attitude apaisée et ce demi-sourire, mondialement connus, ont acquis, au fil des décennies, plus particulièrement au début des années 1900, une renommée chez les artistes, les poètes et les écrivains : celui de celle que l'on surnomme « l'inconnue de la Seine ». Vers 1950, un fabricant de jouet Norvégien, Asmund Laerdal, s'inspire du visage de l'inconnue de la Seine pour créer le premier modèle de resusci Anne, un mannequin d'entraînement destiné aux futurs secouristes, ce qui fait de l'inconnue "la femme la plus embrassée du monde". C'est aux alentours des années 1880 que le destin posthume hors norme de l'inconnue de la Seine naquît. Le corps sans vie d'une belle jeune femme est repêché un jour des eaux de la Seine. Le médecin légiste chargé d'examiner la dépouille trouva son visage si beau et serein qu'il décida d'appeler un mouleur pour que ce dernier en réalise le masque mortuaire. L'officiant, également fasciné par ce visage va en vendre des reproductions dans sa boutique comme il était coutume de le faire pour les personnes connues. Rapidement un nombre croissant de personnes désire acheter une reproduction du masque, surtout parmi les écrivains et les photographes. Toutefois, bien que l'inconnue soit encore réputée de nos jours, la cause de sa mort n'a jamais été élucidée. Selon la thèse communément établie, elle serait décédée des suites d'un suicide en se jetant dans la Seine, d'où le surnom que lui attribuera sa postérité. En vérité, cette hypothèse est née assez tardivement, vers 1931. Nous la devons très probablement à l'écrivain Jules Supervielle, qui consacre une nouvelle à l'inconnue dans le recueil "l'enfant de la haute mer". La seconde version, moins poétique certes, est que l'inconnue serait en fait décédée des suites de la tuberculose. http://bazaretrange.canalblog.com/archives/2016/03/30/33587625.html #resuscianne #secourisme #curiosity #cabinetdecuriosités #curiositycabinet #deathmask #drowned #theunknownoftheseine #unknown #kissed #laerdalmedical #sleepingbeauty #weird #firstaid #learntosavealife
ROMAN DEATH MASK ~ The #RomanDeathMask #Deathmask ~ Inherited from the #greeks it was an honourary act to create a #deathmask for someone of high acclaim. In the Roman elitist families the material used was bee’s wax 🐝 This material was not only a display of wealth but also helps a perserving form to maintain an accurate facial replica. After the assination of #JuliusCaesar the ruling Julii family attended his funeral rites which includes the men of the household who were adorned in the #masks of the #faces of those men/faces; masks normally hung on the walls of the house covered that were commonly lit by flames and covered with smoke, these are the faces of the men who had formed the family name and the traditions of the house. In the ceremony they would walk in procession under candle light. It was also a task and honor for the youngest man of the household to present the eulogy of those who had passed and on this occasion the youngest was #Augustus #Octavian the aptly selected and adopted nephew now heir to Ceasar’s wealth not to the liking to of Mark Antony. It must have been AUGUSTUS who is said to have revelled under this ceremony and might have contributed to his confidence in his soon to be world reknown public affairs and reformations of the newly created #RomanEmpire by his uncle JC. It is also noted that in these Roman days, young men of the house were allowed to follow their fathers and uncles in business and in politics to learn first hand from them the art of growing up. #manhood #manup

The great masked man himself... King Tutankhamon’s death mask circa 1950s taken by my Grandad. Super interesting stuff... how the mask probably wasnt made for King Tut, how many dsabilities he had due to his parents being first cousins, how you g he died and why. Egyptian history is fascinating. #egypt #egyptian #egyptianmuseum #egyptianmuseumcairo #cairo #kingtut #tutankhamun #deathmask #kingtutexhibit #egyptianhistory #egyptianhistory 🇪🇬 #youngpharaoh #pharoah
