I ❤ anything crab related.
when i was in college i took a really fascinating class (really) on romanesque illuminated manuscripts. aside from absolutely loving learning about all of the work and detail that went into each manuscript, i really enjoyed learning about the culture of that time period- namely about reliquaries, which are containers reserved for relics. photographer fran pelsman liscio in new jersey has put a modern spin on the idea of a reliquary with these gorgeous photographs of reliquaries containing objects like flowers, animals and insects. they have such a haunting quality to them and i love the rich colors- i know they may give some of you the creeps but i thought they were way too cool to pass up. click here for more information on fran’s work.
