Via Dublinia Viking experience:

The Vikings liked to groom themselves just as much as we did, the object in the middle (above) was a handy little vanity kit that they could hook onto their clothes like a keyring!

It had tweezers, and a little scoop for cleaning out all the wax in your ear!

They really liked to make a splash.


Never mind.

In collaboration with Pet Stylist Ruben Santana, I have photographed dogs as they are being washed before grooming. The way the water plays with their hair, and their facial expressions as the water is poured on them creates striking portraits that resemble famous humans or important characters. The dogs become sculptures.
