In the Canova Museum and Cast Gallery in Possagno, in the province of Treviso, the famous sculptor’s paintings, terracotta preliminary models and drawings have a place to shine.
A visit here will give you a glimpse into the incredible precision the master of neoclassicism put in his work, painstakingly following a method that went from paper to marble, passing through clay and plaster. One particular item on display is a powerful clue of how meticulous he was: a pantograph, a tool that by using small brass nails as landmarks on the plaster cast allowed to transfer the exact measurements and proportions of the model onto marble.
Designed in 1836 – fourteen years after Canova’s death – by Francesco Lazzari, by will of the artist’s step-brother, Giovanni Battista Sartori, the Museum and Cast Gallery welcomes the works that had been in the sculptor’s studio in Rome.
In 1957, the great Venetian architect Carlo Scarpa expanded a wing of the gallery, in order to flood the casts with light.
Scarpa said, describing his endeavor, “Light was the problem I faced in improving the gallery: I had to deal with sculptures, not paintings, and not marble or wood sculptures but casts made of plaster, an amorphous material that is sensitive to bad weather and needs light, and therefore must be under the sun. And when the sun moves around a sculpture, it never has a negative effect…”
The effect here is absolutely positive. And Canova’s works have their place in the sun. www.spacescan.com.au
Ask and you shall receive! This is what I look like with 600 cc expanders in. Swipe to see my before surgery and pre-expansion pics. As you can see my OG boobs were bigger than they are now. A lot of people I talk to think 600 cc expanders sound HUGE but they aren't on my body. I'm 5'8" tall. 🤯 I have the option for another fill at my pre-op but I think I'm happy at this size (the implant will be a little bigger). I didn't realize just how honking my boobs were before! It's kind of sweet wearing smaller shirts! ✔️ So this is where I have been at for a few weeks and I think this is approximately where I'll stay. 🦄 #emo#converse
Juvederm is one of the most popular facial fillers, relying on a substance called hyaluronic acid to plump up lines and attract and trap moisture inside your skin so it looks smoother and feels plumper and more resilient. In addition to providing you with an immediate improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles, Juvederm also helps “ramp up” production of collagen and elastin, two important “building blocks” of skin that tend to diminish with age. The smooth formulation of Juvederm makes it an especially good choice for fine lines and wrinkles, avoiding the tiny “bumps” that can appear with thicker fillers.

LOL snapped this right after I told my mom "I feel really high" then the phenegren allergic reaction fiasco happened. Oops. Apparently I am not alone in being allergic to that medication. Never again, so scary! I am totally fine though.
