Shield of Achilles. Designed by John Flaxman, Created by Bridge and Rundell,1821. Apollo is depicted in the center, surrounded by stars and female figures representing the constellations. The outer relief shows scenes of humanity - a banquet, wedding, justice, herders defending their herds, harvest time, a seige, an ambush and a banquet. The shield was modeled on legendary shield made for Achilles described in Homer’s Iliad. Perhaps this will help those suffering from Game of Thrones withdrawal.

Salvador Dali taking his Anteater for a walk, Paris 1969.
this mother fucker
had an ant eater.
After seeing this for the thousandth time, I’m quite sure I’ll never amount to this level of awesome.
Literally my favourite picture.
Expect nothing less from Salvador Felipe Jacinto Dali y Domenech, who also owned and trained an octopus.
The Matrix (1999) Directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski
This movie has a reocurring motif of having objects and people viewed through the reflection on a character’s sunglasses
From a framing standpoint this allows an actor to be on screen and for the audience to view their facial expression while avoiding cutting away to what is in front of them.
In a more abstract sense it also adds to a sense of dissociation, for instead of looking directly at something, we are looking at merely a reflection of it.
