I Want to Show You Something Really Quite Magical

 I want to show you something truly magical. In fact I think it's one of the best things you can possibly image search on Google: Ancient Roman mummy portraits. Not the cold marble of Gods and Emperors, but the painted faces of real, everyday people like you or me who went about their day in the classical world. It's an intimate and moving sight if you've never seen them before, trust me.  Like You could reach out and hold their hands...
