This is a fragment of a ceiling painting at the Painted Hall at Greenwich University in London (formerly known as Old Naval College). I don’t know if it was already on your blog but when I saw it I immediately thought of you and amazing work you do to educate us on your blog. Therefore thought I’ll let you know about this medievalpoc
Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

it will be fun they said
"I was carrying a steel pipe at work, and it brushed up against an electrical wire. When I woke up, I saw that everything was gone, and I just started crying. It’s like I’m a kid again. They clean me, they put me to bed, they wipe my butt, and they even hold my birdie when I pee. I’ve been begging for money in this same spot for 20 years. All that I can do is try to get my bread every day until God decides to take me home."

isn’t it weird that we pay money to see other human beings?
Are you talking about prostitution, the movies, or airplane tickets?
Apollo and Daphne
Jakob Auer (ca. 1645 - 1706)
Vienna, before 1688
In his Metamorphoses, Ovid tells of the nymph Daphne, who eluded the desires of the sun god Apollo by turning herself into a laurel tree (Greek daphne, laurel).
The two-figure group depicts the beginning of this transformation. In travel reports from the Baroque period, this virtuoso piece of carving was already considered a major work of the Viennese imperial treasury.
