Pretty Lovely
When I first saw this photo, it took my breath away…
From Jezebel:

This weekend the Lovers of Valdaro, two skeletons found wrapped in an embrace, were displayed for the first time at Mantua’s Archaeological Museum. The bones date  back to the Neolithic era and were found face to face with their arms  and legs entwined in 2007. There’s no sign that the man and woman, who  were around 18 to 20 years old, died a violent death. Some believe they  died holding each other on a freezing night, though it’s more likely  that they were just buried in that position. Fans of the Lovers in  Mantua are campaigning to give them a permanent spot in the museum, now  that they’ve been moved from the grave they shared for 6,000 years.
