EDITORS COMMENTS
This print titled "Tattoo Hearts of Jesus and Mary, 1894" takes us back to the late 19th century, offering a glimpse into the world of criminal anthropology. The image showcases an intricate drawing depicting two hearts united by a crowned festoon, symbolizing the sacred bond between Jesus and Mary. Created for relief and study purposes, this artwork was used to examine tattoos on individuals affected by various conditions. The illustration is sourced from 'Archive of psychiatry, criminal sciences and criminal anthropology, ' a renowned academic publication founded by Cesare Lombroso. Dr Abele De Blasio's essay titled 'Further research around the Neapolitan Camorrist Tattoo' sheds light on this intriguing subject matter. As an anthropologist and criminologist who directed the Anthropometric Office of Naples Police Headquarters, Dr De Blasio provides valuable insights into the significance of these tattoos within the context of criminality. The engraving itself is meticulously crafted with attention to detail evident in every stroke. The hearts are adorned with initials representing both the tattoo artist and recipient while chains encircle them as symbols of devotion or perhaps restraint. Additionally, flames emanating from braziers add an element of intensity to this thought-provoking composition. This remarkable piece not only serves as a historical artifact but also invites contemplation about religious symbolism intertwined with criminal subcultures during that era in Italy. It offers viewers a unique opportunity to explore themes such as faith, identity, and societal perceptions through artistry rooted in scientific inquiry.
