The Goddess Aphrodite at Her Bath
The figurine depicts a female nude crouched on her toes, with her right knee to the ground. Her head is lowered and turned to the right, a position explained by the raised arms: she is perhaps about to wring out from her hair the water indicated by the wet and rippling aspect of the two tresses that frame the delicate features. Earrings hang on either side of the attractive face with its extreme finesse, and on her head is a wreath adorned with three medallions. Together with the air of grace that envelops the naked figure, these suggest that represented here is no ordinary mortal at her bath, but the ritual ablutions of Aphrodite, goddess of love.
Sculpted in the 3rd or 2nd century BC. 
Probably produced at Myrina,

Surreal Paintings by Paco Pomet

The art of Paco Pomet is highly iconoclastic. He possesses a wonderfully bizarre sense of humor that manifests itself in his oil paintings which contain a strange or humorous visual twist. His subverted landscapes and portraits often borrow from sepia-toned photographs that look like historical documents or vintage photos. There is a parallel to traditional Western Art, mixed with a monochrome effect that restates the documentary character of the original piece.

Boscoreale Frescoes of the villa of P. Fannius Synistor

Boscoreale was located north of Pompeii and was destroyed in the cataclysmic volcanic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 CE. The frescoes of and the villa itself were buried under volcanic ash. Not only was the discovery of these frescoes important is preserving part of Roman antiquity, but they show the artistic movement of the Second Period in Roman fresco painting, as well as highlight the affluence lifestyle of this Roman family. 

These pictures were taken my friend (hutchhitched) in our trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC in the spring of 2013. Please do not remove the credit for these pictures if reblogging. Thank you.
