Architectural ceiling boss with four faces, probably from the Church of St. Andrew at Cullompton

Artist Unknown, England

This ceiling boss features four faces with traces of paint that are arranged in a radial pattern with the crowns of their heads converging on a single, central point. Two of the faces are female, identifiable by the wimples worn on their heads, while the other two, wearing small pointed caps and sporting beards, are male. The symmetrical regularity of the piece is counterbalanced by subtle asymmetries introduced by differences in detail and the sequence of facial types.

Three Eyes

André Kertész

Square photograph with overall blue/black/white tones, except for full color in the center circle. In the middle there is a sphere stacked on a circle, stacked on a cube. The sphere has the image of an upside down eye, the circle a color image of a blue eye with heavy dark lashes, and the cube has an image of the eye, lid and brow. A pair of eyeglasses are placed in front of the cube so that the eye sits behind the lens. Behind the stacked objects is a large sheet of paper rolled into a conical shape.
