One of Bernard Picart’s engravings for the 1723 Cérémonies et Coutumes Religieuses de Tous les Peuples du Monde (published in English as Ceremonies and Religious Customs of the Various Nations of the Known World), the first ever book of comparative religion, showing Shiva (I presume) and Ganesh. (My guess is these illustrations were based on written or verbal descriptions!)

Artist: Lew Stone & his band  with vocals by Al Bowlly 
Song: Coffee In The Morning (And Kisses In The Night) 
Recorded: 1934

I’ve got a mission
It’s just a simple thing

I’ve only one ambition: 
to have right to being you…

Your coffee in the morning
and kisses in the night


It makes no difference
where we decide to live

As long as I’m the one, dear,
who’s always gonna give you…

Your coffee In the morning
and kisses in the night

Costume for a Fury in Iphigenia in Tauris. Jean-Baptiste Martin (French, 1659-1735). Oil on canvas.
Jean-Baptiste Martin, who was appointed designer for the Paris Opéra in 1748, devised decorative and amusing Rococo variations for the male dancer’s traditional costume. Martin utilized Inca, African, Chinese, and Mexican motifs in his ballets, and under his direction the tonneler took on an elliptical shape.
