Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, Christ after the Flagellation, after 1665
From the Boston Museum of Fine Arts:
Murillo was known for his intense renderings of religious martyrdom and ecstasy and for the sensuous beauty of his paint. Here, the artist has focused exclusively on Christ’s suffering, choosing a moment after his tormentors have left the scene. Murillo’s image depicts the human yet divine nature of Christ. The artist has placed him humbly upon the ground and painted his battered body so that his skin seems almost radiant, despite its wounds and sores. The angels display both adoration and compassion for the tortured Christ, the emotions the image was intended to arouse in its viewers.
Onionlab, a multi-disciplinary studio based in Barcelona, created this 3D projection mapping project for the 2013 Mapping Festival.
About the project:
Onionlab presents Evolució, a piece that revolves around the graphic and sound abstraction of the concept it is named after: evolution. It is construed as transformation, construction and alteration of reality through time; evolution as a discontinuous creation process as well.
Created with 3D projection mapping techniques, this time, Evolució was projected onto the façade of the Musées d’art et d’histoire de Genève, though the piece takes the evolution concept even further: It was conceived as an open transformation process so that it can also be adapted to different façades and projection surfaces, and so that Evolució can continue its transformation process.

I wish all old buildings would do this…
this is probably the only sex gif i will every reblog, because for some reason i feel like it’s more than just sex. i don’t know if it’s how they’re actually looking at one another or the way they can’t get close enough. he’s actually looking at her like a person and not just a sex object.
but then again, it could be all in my head. i mean, this is how i would want it to be. but that’s just me.
I’m about 97% sure we’re not seeing the same gif
