Illustrations found in Aztec codices (books written by pre-Columbian and colonial-era Aztecs) depicting human sacrifices.
The first is a sacrifice to Tezcatlipoca, the god of Night, the North and Sorcery, a yearly ceremony where a young boy playing music with four flutes was slaughtered at the stairs of a temple outside Tenochtitlan.
Human sacrifice and other forms of torture – self-inflicted or otherwise – were common to many parts of the New World, while the Aztecs in particular have been described as cannibals, sodomites, alcoholics and polygamists.

Human limbs on sale at Wesker and Son pop-up butchers at London’s Smithfield Market.
The limbs may look eerily realistic but there are actually fashioned from animal meat and the butcher shop is part of a publicity stunt, designed to promote the release of the new video game Resident Evil 6. All the proceeds from the human part sales went to the Limbless Association, a charity for amputees and other people who have lost limbs; a clever strategy according to WWT which helped the stunt to remain within a ‘politicaly correct’ framework.
“Faces 5″ is a cloyingly morbid series of portraits by Utrecht photographer Ashkan Honarvar, whose work deals with the malleability of the human body. In these unnerving photographic manipulations, men’s mutilated faces weep sprinkles, frosting, and candy vines.

Performance of the Spanish Group Sangre Menstrual at the streets of Madrid in support of their “Manifesto for the Visibility of the Period “. The manifesto is against the tyranny of hiding a physiological function of the female body, of treating the bleeding body as sick, unwell and disgusting and all the taboos further reinforced by religion and society (following the guidelines set religion) .
By visualising the period Sangre Menstrual visualise the body as a political space. Well done girls!
