The Greek element in the Bowie-Iman wedding

Special thanks for this discovery are due to my close friend, antiquities conservator, Mania Kostopoulou

While reading an article on Iman and David Bowie, Mania noticed a beautiful photograph of the lovely couple behind a wedding cake. And what a wedding-cake that was! Four-storied, each story supported by well-made white doric fluted columns. The whole thing rather recalls a multi-storied tholos -minus the roof of course. 
On top of the cake is a rather strange couple performing acrobatics -hmm can't think of why. 







There's actually no way, a normal person could have ever noticed this detail, which is probably why I couldn't find anything on the web regarding this cake -Iman and Bowie are so radiant-, so Mania, thanks again for this!

Demeter Fertiliser

Fellow archaeologist and great photographer Fotis Yfantidis shared a very interesting photograph on CGA's Facebook page: the emblem of the Greek Phosphoric Fertiliser Industry showing Demeter holding a torch and shallow bowl. 

I'm reproducing it here along with some more photographs found on the net.
