Wulfram. Could that woman covering her head in the photo be because she doesn't want her soul stolen?

Its certainly a possibility. Linden suggested that she was probably in mourning. Both of your theories are much more plausible than my own. I thought that maybe her children were born out of wedlock, which was a huge thing back then, and has covered her face in shame. We also have to consider the possibility that this is not the mother at all. That could very well be a mannequin underneath there. Why would they do this? Who knows. The Victorians are famous for being highly eccentric, which is why it is one of my favorite eras.

"Headburst"


Don't ask. The artist himself admitted he had no clue what this is


Southern Emerald Damselfly


"BleedBlack"


The photographer was able to capture her own reflection in the eye of her friend.


This artist, who calls herself "Vampire-Carmen", has used the spires of Regensburg cathedral as horns.






Another old depiction of moses with horns.
I have yet to read an adequate explanation for this by theologians.
16th century


"The Buoyancy in Drowning"


A human heart injected with cinnabar in order to show the veins.




"Histoire d'outre-tombe"


According to the source this WW1 photo is of a German officer who was shot while looking at the enemies position from a tree.
Many of the comments say that it is not real while others say it is.
Look at his boots. they appear to be painted on.


"Devil playing the bagpipes; perched on the shoulders of a monk whose head forms the bagpipe."
16th century




A macro image of a millipede. Notice the mites that it carries.

Walpurgis Night bonfire with setting sun behind it, somewhere in Sweden.
Please enlarge for full effect.


"The Observer's Book of Portals"


A mannequin dating from the early 1900s. The Germanic/Nordic look has always been ideal.


This was taken in Delfgauw, Netherlands.
I will give rep points to anyone who can correctly identify the object/species in the photo.


"The dressing room of an abandoned mine. Expensive belongings were dropped in those baskets against robbery and locked from the bottom.
At the end of the day when a basket was still in the air, they knew that someone was deep down in the mine."


According to the photographer this was found deep into a forest in Sweden.




"Ants Around an Angel in Aether/A Bat Upon A Bottled Beetle"

The Northern lights from space


A tombstone found in the Salt Lake City cemetery.


Dortmund, Germany - Rombergpark
The water of this little stream contains a high proportion of dissolved iron lawn stone which gives it this unusual red color.




This jar dates from the 1880s, its contents dispensed without prescription by the local druggist.


Yet another old photograph of a mother who has covered her face while posing with her child.


This image dates from the 1860s.
Why is the woman on the right wearing that creepy mask?
She seems a little old to be trick-or-treating.


1897. This one is called "A Dream of Christmas".
What makes this image so curious?
The ghastly, ghostly image of Santa Claus haunting they're dreams, and now mine.


An 1875 trick photo of a man who appears to have cut his own head off.
Even for the Victorians this was quite extreme.


Yes, the man on the left is in drag.
The man on the right looks to be holding a mask bearing the image of his own face.


Well...


One of my favorite "Rapunzel" photographs. 1890s.


Another beauty


The title of this 1850s photograph: "Post Mortem Daguerreotype of a Young Woman with Eyes Painted on Lids". There is a debate about whether she has passed on or the photo was taken right before her death. If she is alive you can certainly see that she is very ill, her skin ghostly white.
