Otomi Art in Querétaro | Mexico (by Boa Mistura)

The setting for Boa Mistura‘s latest project is La Colonia de las Américas on the outskirts of Querétaro, México. It is a humble community of working class people consisting of housing (much of which is self built) and small business: ‘misceláneas’ (grocery stores), taquerías, and cantinas. La Colonia de Las Américas is located across two sides of a hill, and has a ‘boomerang’ form overlooking the two main highways of the state; the ’5 de febrero’ road and ‘Bernardo Quintana’, which converge exactly at the apex of Las Américas — as a result the neighborhood is seen daily seen by thousands of people.

Often overlooked by tourists, the ruins of Rome’s ancient port, Ostia, are quite extensive and in pretty good shape compared to what the Italian government has allowed to happen to Pompeii.

The Consecration, George Cochran Lambdin

"Painted during the last year of the Civil War, The Consecration recalls the romantic spirit in which many men went off to battle. In a comfortable Yankee library, filled with the furnishings and flowers, a beautiful woman kisses the sword of her officer, dedicating it to a noble cause. The symbolism of Lambdin’s gray-blue color scheme must have been obvious to his postwar audience. While the emotions aroused by the Civil War inspired many decidedly sentimental paintings, it was left to newspaper artists and photographers to capture the horror of war, which ended America’s era of innocence.”
