Blood is not water – Bloody portraits by Ludek Rathousky.
Portrait painted by the blood of the portrayed person.

Why should I have a blood portrait?

The main objective of a portrait nowadays and in history was to capture not only the person image, but also to express his/her position in society and, if possible, highlight the character features. Today film and photography are capable of doing this. However, the portrait painted by blood of the portrayed person is more than only a portrait it keeps track of the genetic profile for the future generations. If science develops so dynamically the reading of the DNA in future will be common like watching TV in our homes. In addition, you can already use DNA analysis to determine your origin and place where your ancestors came from.
