Akseli Gallen-Kallela (Finnish, 1865 – 1931)
Lemminkäinen’s Mother, 1897
In the Finnish epic Kalevala, Lemminkäinen drowns in the river of the underworld while attempting to capture the Black Swan. His mother fishes her dead son’s body parts from the river and sews him back together. The only thing that can restore his life is a drop of honey from the dwelling of Ukko, the God of the Sky.
In this painting, Lemminkäinen’s mother waits for the bee to deliver the precious drop of honey to revive her son.

Inspired by replaceface. I didn’t find Hiddleston there, so I made it myself. I really hope you like it ^^

Art Focus:Adam Lupton
For this edition of our Art Focus feature, we present to you the work of Canadian artist Adam Lupton. Painted in oils, his portraiture oftentimes features multiple visages blurred together in a fragmented reality that seems to reflect the different struggles his subjects have with identity. Examples of this include different glimpses of a man dressing in drag and snapshots of another person putting on different masks
