'Darkytown Rebellion.' Kara Walker. Cut paper and projection on wall. Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, Luxembourg. 4.3 x 11.3m. Walker's piece projects a nightmarish scene in which details are lost amongst the chaos and confusion of the silhouettes. To enhance the surrealism of the artwork, Walker plays psychedelic in the background. Furthermore, Walker is making a social commentary on the treatment and perception of African Americans through violent imagery of their historical past.

Nasopharynx surface showing microvilli on the surface of stratified squamous nasal epithelial cells. The tiny microvilli increase the cell surface area and likely aid in localizing foreign debris coming from the nose detected by immune cells. Mucus secreted by cells in the epithelial lining (not seen) traps foreign objects such as bacteria, preventing them from entering the lungs. SEM X2000.
