The earliest evidence of ancient dentistry we have is an amazingly detailed dental work on a mummy from ancient Egypt that archaeologists have dated to 2000 BCE. The work shows intricate gold work around the teeth. This mummy was found with two donor teeth that had holes drilled into them. Wires were strung through the holes and then around the neighboring teeth.

Have you not heard Daniel? Or SLEEP ALONE for crying out loud!

Two+Two anyone? ANYONE??

Gosh bones all mighty! Sleep alone is so beautiful. But, can we talk about All Your Gold and Pearls Dream. No? That’s ok, I’ll just play it over here…

STRIKING PORTRAITS CAPTURE AFRICA’S FINAL GENERATION OF SCARIFICATION http://bit.ly/1qYasGL

My mother has these scars and I can remember being with her at a makeup counter when I was 10 or so. The lady referred to them awkwardly as ‘blemishes’ which left my mother quite embarrassed but she brushed it off with such poise. 
There are many things that I can say that my mother and I differ on and can’t tolerate from one another, but that incident has always stuck with me as a marker to the insane amount of strength my mother embodies. Though some may trivialise it, the fact that this is something she has had to live with her entire life and confront through ignorance everyday after moving from Nigeria to England to offer my siblings and I a better life, well, I can only tip my hat to her.

Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan on November 16, 1581

Ilya Repin

This painting depicts the historical 16th century story of Ivan the Terrible mortally wounding his son in Ivan in a fit of rage. By far the most psychologically intense of Repin’s paintings, the Emperor’s face is fraught with terror, as his son lay quietly dying in his arms, blood dripping down the side of his face.
