Victorian era death portraits are an infamously creepy, yet beautiful means of memorializing the deceased. Join the Babes in a discussion of this artistic expression of grief, the ubiquity of Victorian era ghosts, and Frida Kahlo’s death mask. Plus we share our individual death plans! It doesn’t get more intimate than that. LIFE IS SHORT ART IS LONG.
