Volcanic displays

I took this picture at the National History Museum and I thought it would suit this post. I am late in the news, but I wanted to blog about it: Mount Etna has erupted recently. And? Mount Etna is one of these volcanoes that have this huge reputation and mythology about them, that every volcanic eruption brings back. There is just something about burning lava. It is kind of ironic that cold lava looks so much like mud, ugly and nonthreatening in the slightest. But looking at it, even on displays like this one, I always feel a slight shiver.
