Trinidad Trifacial— a unique, if somewhat heterodox, depiction of the Holy Trinity as Christ with three faces. I have posted this image before, with a sizable number of notes to boot, but never of sufficiently high resolution. It was painted by an anonymous artist of the Cusco school in the 18th century.

Marilyn Monroe photographed by John Florea, 1951.
[Sam] Shaw shared an almost-telepathic bond with Monroe, in whom he recognized a fellow seeker of love, adventure and knowledge. He met her on the set of Kazan’s ¡Viva Zapata! — a struggling extra — along with Anthony Quinn, and became lifelong friends of both. Shaw photographed Monroe throughout her career and became a confidant during the upheaval of her celebrity, marriages, divorces and alienation from the studios. Shaw encouraged the actress to shed the layers of makeup she wore like so much armor, reassuring her that without it she was still one of the world’s most beautiful women. “She really looked at Sam as part of her family — he was the kind of person who was always there, like an Italian mother, with a pot of coffee brewing,” [Lorie] Karnath says.
