Maerten van Heemskerck (Antwerp, 1498-1574)
David confronts Goliath.
Plate 6 of a series of 10 engravings after Heemskerck’s drawing, which is preserved in the Louvre and dated 1555. Originally published by Hieronymous Cock in 1556.
The prisoner defiantly stares down Heinrich Himmler, Hitler’s right-hand-man, who was responsible for the Holocaust. Greasley’s confrontation with Himmler took place during an inspection of the camp he was confined to. The inmates were ordered to remain seated, but Greasley refused. Horace Greasley also escaped the death camp, but sneaked back in to rescue a German woman whom he had fallen in love with.
this is amazing
Wait it gets better, he escaped from the camp 200 times to meet with the woman he was in love with and returned after every time because there was no other place to go to. He also wrote an autobiography omfg this dude is seriously awesome

Simon Dale is a photographer by trade, but a hobbit home builder by night. The artist has an affinity for creating homes that are from natural material, and Dale’s own version of a ‘Hobbit‘ House are just that– a small residence that has a green roof and is partially underground.
The home is entirely sustainable and was built with straw bale walls that are covered in lime plaster. All else has been recycled scraps to craft the wooden roof structure and other elements. Of course the electricity is all gained via solar panels, and The entire floor plan and building section for the space were hand sketched onto a piece of paper.
home sweet home :~)
