I collect images when I go surfing the ‘Net. Anything that piques my interest. And anything that I think might pique yours as well, my loyal readers. I never know when I might use these images. Oftentimes there is no accompanying information to report. These images sit on my desktop until such time as I have a spot to fill. Since none of them merit an entire article to themselves, I decided to put a few of them together and share all at once.
Above are a couple of pictures of stained glass windows featuring the historical Dracula. They’re (allegedly) from one or more of the monasteries he founded in his homeland of Romania. Cool, huh? He was also featured in the painting THE MARTYRDOM OF SAINT ANDREW, painted sometime around 1470 to 1480 in Austria. (Drac is on the left.)
The picture is currently found at the Belvedere Museum in Austria. And these are reproductions of the type of clothes Dracula would have worn.
They’re not the actual clothes, unfortunately. To my knowledge, nothing physical belonging to Dracula has survived until the present, unless one counts architecture.
I never knew that Hot Wheels released a Universal Monsters collection, but apparently they did.
Lastly, this is the Gerber baby reinterpreted as a vampire.
I have no idea who the artist is, or what are the origins of this image. I just chanced upon and it made me smile. If anyone has any more information about it, feel free to pass it along.
