I found this amazing Janus on BritishInk's Flickrstream. Janus is the Roman god of beginnings and endings, a liminal being of the sowing and harvesting of crops, of birth and death, of youths growing into adults, etc. He is nearly always shown with two faces pointing in opposite directions and is most popularly known for lending his name to our month of January.
