Old Finnish people with things on their heads. That is all.

(OK, I lied, that is not all. These are part of a funny, gorgeous photo series by Karoline Hjorth and Riitta Ikonen called Eyes As Big As Plates, and you should look at as much of it as you possibly can.)

(Also: hat tip, so to speak, to Mr. Benjamin Birdsall.)

Not historic, but some very cool art in the style of 18th century natural history, and 18th/19th century anatomists.The anatomy especially evokes Eustachi.
