An attempt to reconstruct the apperance of a high-status mycenaean woman.
It’s possible that mycenaean women of high social status, noblewomen and priestesses, painted their faces for ceremonial occasions, using white lead. Such make-up would give their face mask-like appearance, letting temporarily remove the individual behind said mask and play a certain role instead.

Centuries before block printing was introduced in Europe, the technique was used in the Islamic world to produce miniature texts consisting of prayers, incantations, and Qur’anic verses that were kept in amulet boxes.

Urgent, urgent, help requested. It’s in my home. I don’t know what it wants. I don’t even know what it is. What should I do? What is it doing?

i had to check my pokedex’s “who’s that pokemon” app to verify the identity of this animal, but i can tell you right now you’ll need this.
nothing beats pest control like swiffer’s dust-lock adhesive. no one knows where these animals come from but this sort of rabbit tends to collect near couches and below furniture. when you’re done, throw the whole duster head in the trash or chuck everything out the window (defenestration) to show other animals what happens when they break into your house.
if it’s too scary for you to get that close, purchase the swiffer duster extender.
