The Last Paintings

Diego Rivera - The Watermelons - 1957

Frida Kahlo - Viva la Vida, Watermelons - 1954

Apparently, both Frida Kahlo's and Diego Rivera's last paintings are of watermelons.

The Iranian wrestler Omid Noroozi, who won the gold medal in the men's 60-kg category in London 2012, in a classical statue pose - the contrapposto - so apt for this style of Greco-Roman wrestling.

Contrapposto is an Italian term that means counterpose. It is used in the visual arts to describe a human figure standing with most of its weight on one foot so that its shoulders and arms twist off-axis from the hips and legs. This gives the figure a more dynamic, or alternatively relaxed appearance.
