This one is a little too subtle. I played with brightness/contrast trying to find something, and still couldn't see it. I had to open both images and alt-tab between them quickly a few times before I could see any difference. After I found it, it's still hard to make out in the 'shopped pic, even knowing where to look.

Yeah I was afraid of that...

EDIT: Do'oh, i didnt save the psd file. Oh well, lesson learned, thanks for the heads up!

Der Ritter:


quote:

A german woodcut from the 1540s. It has puzzled historians since it was discovered at Halstberg castle in 1883. The woodcut bears the distinct style of a known woodcut artist from that area, Hans Freckenberg. Although know for his realistic depiction of human anotomy in his works, something that was unusual for the woodcuts in the 16th century, this picture differs radically from the rest of Freckenbergs works. The character to the right bears little semblance to a human being, with skeletal physique and long limbs at odd angles. Many theories have been dicussed as to what Freckenberg wanted to symbolize with that character, some say its a personification of the religious wars that raged in Europe at the time, others say its a personification of the mysterious plague that have been believed to be the reason for the mysterious abandoning of the Halstberg castle and the nearby village in 1543.

Another woodcut dated to around the 1540's. Its the work of Hans Freckenberg who disappeared in 1543 in Halstedt. The entity to the right is very similar to the odd humanoid from Freckenbergs earlier woodcut; 'DER RITTER' since both share many of the same features such as unatural height and long limbs. One thing to point out is that much work went into the entity to the right, at the cost of the depiction of the people to the left and middle in the woodcut wich is very crude, something that is quite unusual for Freckenberg who was best know for his lifelike depictions of humans in his earlier works. The reason for this sudden change of priorites in Freckenberg's style are still a topic of hot debate.

GyverMac these are fantastic. I love the reappearance of the hourglass in each. I think this is meant to symbolize the timelessness of S.MAN?

In the danse macabre woodcuts i use as a source, hourglasses are always present, since the danse macabre woodcuts was made to remind people of the inevitability of death and that time was running out. (Like medieval/Renaissance people didnt have ENOUGH to worry about :S)

Did you make up Freckenberg and the dates etc for your woodcuts? I only ask because the info I posted regarding the Baldung X-ray painting was legit (apart from the link to Freckenberg and the X-ray obv.) and it seems like quite a creepy coincidence?

Hans Freckenberg is entirely fictional, i just made him up in order to create a backstory about my pics, so yeah thats a pretty creepy coincidence...

Oh, and i want more Xray pictures please, the xray of 'Three Ages of Woman and Death' was geniunely creepy!
