Bust of a Ruler
Around the end of the 2nd cent. AD Acropolis Museum (Athens, Greece)
The bust was found in the Theatre of Dionysos in 1870 or 1876. It depicts a young man with idealised features. Who the depicted person is remains unknown. Perhaps he was a philhellene ruler or the descendant of a royal family who had more of a spiritual than political connection to Athens.

The Magnificent Ancient Greek Sculpture The 'Calf Bearer'
This is the first known photograph of the magnificent ancient Greek statue of Moschophoros, also known in English as 鈥淭he Calf Bearer鈥 when it was discovered on the Acropolis in 1864.
The arresting statue, dated to c. 560 BC and estimated to have originally measured 1.65 meters (5.4 feet) in height, is now in the Acropolis Museum.
The inscription on the plinth claims that the statue was dedicated by someone named Rhombos (possibly Kombos or Bombos; the beginning of the name is missing) to Athena, the goddess of wisdom.
This suggests that the sponsor was a very well-to-do-man and a prominent citizen of Attica who offered his own likeness to Athena. He carries a calf on his shoulders which may represent the sacrificial offering he is about to give to the goddess.
The Calf Bearer depicts human emotion, connection to animals
The Calf Bearer marks a radical shift in Greek art toward deeper depictions of human emotion, compared to earlier sculptures that were more rigid.
The interaction shown between the calf and the calf-bearer in the work represents a strong, inseparable bond between the two. this may be a reference to humankind鈥檚 reliance on farm animals for survival, as well as a nod to their ritual and sacrificial use.
The man in the sculpture is smiling, which is a unique and new feature compared to earlier Greek statues.
The condition of the Moschophoros is poor and it has tragically been broken in some areas. The legs are missing below the knees on both sides. The hands are broken off. The genitals and the left thigh have separated from the whole sculpture.
Additionally, the lower half of the face (the chin area) has been chipped off. The foot, standing on its plinth, is now connected to the base, however.
The form of the calf is well preserved, while Moschophoros鈥檚 eyes, which had been created from another substance, either glass or gemstones, perhaps, are absent.
The Acropolis Museum
The Acropolis Museum is a treasure trove of Greek history from prehistoric times through the greatest days of Greece鈥檚 Golden Ages. Built over streets in the ancient city, visitors walk over a reinforced glass floor and peer down into carefully-excavated streets and buildings, gazing back into the history of the city itself.
Opened in 2009, the new Acropolis Museum faces the monument from the very heart of the picturesque Plaka district. It is ten times larger than the previous museum, which was built on the hill of the Acropolis itself.
Stunning natural light is a focal element of its architectural design, with its creators aspiring to create a simple and precise museum with the mathematical and conceptual clarity of ancient Greece.
By Tasos Kokkinidis.

I鈥檝e been meaning to draw our favorite necromancer properly, because even though Jiang Cheng is now my fave it was Xiao Zhan鈥檚 peerless face that first kept me watching CQL.
This pose is based off the Baberini Faun. I debated whether to have CR!WWX (right careless atmosphere and canonically peak physical fitness) or YLLZ!WWX (at least the sexier version in my head, where he isn鈥檛 starving on a haunted mountain) and you see where we ended up. Tortuous rest! Endless angst! Admirable muscular despite constant starvation! Is the blood pool behind him or in front! Who knows! Not me!

For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.
So collapse.
Crumble.
This is not your destruction.
This is your birth.
