This profile is termed a Hatchet face profils, because of the sharp angle in the face, as if carved out. by regina

Aaron and Moses in the Tabernacle.  The word “veil” in Hebrew means a screen, divider or separator that hides. What was this curtain hiding? Essentially, it was shielding a holy God from sinful man. Whoever entered into the Holy of Holies was entering the very presence of God. In fact, anyone except the high priest who entered the Holy of Holies would die. by regina

Real life Shrek. Maurice Tillet was actually a very intelligent person who was a poet and writer. He could speak 14 languages. Tillet was born in 1903, and as a teenager he manifested a rare disease called acromegaly, which caused his bones to grow uncontrollably. As a result his body was disfigured, and he turned into what people back then referred to as “freak show”; He took advantage of his condition, turning into a pro wrestler called the “freak ogre of the ring”. by patrica

The so called Trenton Hatchet Man makes his home at the Hickory Flat Cemetery. Urban legend says that if you try to enter cemetery after dark, a man dressed in old, dirty clothes will chase you away. He is supposedly the old caretaker of the cemetery who was killed by a maniac with a hatchet. Where did said maniac come from, and what was his beef with the caretaker? I haven’t been able to figure that out, but now, in an odd twist of fate I suppose, the caretaker haunts the cemetery … by Hercio Dias

1910 Chinook Indian woman near Celilo Falls (Columbia River) Wishram village. Photo: Edward S. Curtis. The Nez Perce name originated with a Lewis & Clark expedition interpreter in 1805. However, the Nez Perce did not have nose piercing traditions, as the name implies. In fact, as this photo demonstrates, it was the southern Chinookan peoples along the Columbia River who traditionally pierced their noses.
