sheep's head

Or to be more accurate in a pick up van on the street. I love these startling sights that are quite common throughout the Middle East. I was in Aleppo I think when I spotted this poor animal. As luck would have it, I was with Jason Lowe who doesn’t need introducing, and only he can make something so gruesome look so beautiful. I love this picture and it’s a perfect follow-up on the lamb testicles post to illustrate the quick passage from freshly slaughtered to the butcher’s counter.ย  The sheep was about to be unloaded at a local butcher who was going to skin and butcher it.

    What startling immediacy! For a moment, my eyes saw de Zurbaranโ€™s Agnus Dei. Thank you, Anissa.

    perhaps this is one of the reasons i love this photo so much. it is like an old master painting. the colours are just gorgeous and jason hasn’t really worked on it yet. so glad you like it.

    This really captures the aesthetics and traditions of a society much closer to its food. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, it’s real, which is refreshing in and of itself.

    In these heated days of political correctness, it is both bewildering, refreshing and yes, mesmerizingand haunting too, to see such an image; one which reminds us how you must travel and see into a culture, before you can judge it with the same criteria you’ve used before – this photo reminds me that there are other people and customs and ways of life and different ways to find beauty. Thank you. It is a stunning photo.
