    Click this link to see this young girl's artwork, and prepare to be astonished. "God is her art teacher", she says.


    Here's Akiane's story.


    Akiane painted this portrait, which she called The Prince of Peace, when she was 8 (eight) years old.

    The painting was stolen, and all she has is a large photograph. Years later, she recreated a slightly different version of it.

    She describes how, as a little girl, she prayed the whole day before she painted it, to receive the inspiration for the image. This actually arrived in the form of an unexpected visitor to the doorstep, who had the same striking features.

    She explains that the painting reflects her personal recurrent memories of Jesus. When asked (frequently!) how on earth she did this when she was so young, she admits she has absolutely no idea. She just "did it".


    (Larger image: http://projectavalon.net/Akiane_and_...e_of_Peace.jpg)


    And here's Akiane, back when she painted this.

    A couple of years ago, I visited the city of Ravenna, Italy (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ravenna). It served, for a time, as the capital of the Roman empire and is full of the most wonderful mosaics.

    Many of the ancient buildings have their ceilings and walls adorned with light-filled and luminous mosaic “paintings”. The effect is a little like being inside of a kaleidoscope.

    Here are two lovely examples of these extraordinary mosaics.

    Byzantine ceiling mosaic representing the night sky, 5th century CE. Galla Placidia Mausoleum, Ravenna, Italy:


    Byzantine ceiling mosaic (detail), 6th century CE. Archiepiscopal Chapel (Archbishop's Chapel), Ravenna, Italy:

    Thank you Cara. I have an especial love of mosaics and woven textiles. They are awe inspiring and true works of art.

    A work by one of my favorite painters (I have many), Martin Johnson Heade. He painted this in 1871 during one of his journeys in the American tropics. Titled "Cattleya Orchid and Three Hummingbirds," It is now in the National Gallery of Art.

    "Lichen covers dead branches; moss drips from trees; and, a blue-gray mist veils the distant jungle. An opulent pink orchid with light-green stems and pods dominates the left foreground." On the right, two green-and-pink Brazilian Amethysts hover about a nest while a red-tailed Sappho Comet perches nearby.

    I know, Maxfield Parrish, but I've always enjoyed his art. I can feel myself in the worlds these paintings create.

    The Minoans were a Bronze Age civilisation settled on Crete and other Aegean islands. They created “massive building complexes, tools, stunning artwork, writing systems, and a massive network of trade.” (Wikipedia)

    Their palaces and buildings were decorated by richly coloured and graceful frescoes.

    I first read about their art in “Sociology, Religion and Grace”, by sociologist Arpad Szakolczai, who characterises their culture in this way:

    Quote This Minoan component emphasised the beauty of the world and radiant grace as the central value both in keeping society together and in channelling human energies into an uplifting direction, opposed to the descent into the unconscious forces of violence, greed and lust, combined with the rule of ice-cold rationality and a mentality of geometric legalism.
    And here are some of the Minoan frescoes:







    More frescoes, with some commentary here: http://antiquatedantiquarian.blogspo...-frescoes.html

    Bernini was an Italian sculptor of the Baroque era. His sculptures capture movement and myth, transformation and expression.

    Here is a short video about Apollo and Daphne, with a commentary explaining the myth and its expression by Bernini:

    Fallingwater - Frank Lloyd Wright

    This video of the architecture is a bit dated but provides some interesting insight. The house dates back to 1935/1936!

    Since he is quoted in the opening post, it seems appropriate to include him here.....

    There is currently an exhibition of some of the works of Leonardo da Vinci (and his school) at the Louvre in Paris. It is timed to coincide with the 500th anniversary of his death.

    Here’s a brief video tour of the exhibition:

    Anka,

    Those paintings are incredibly beyond words.

    He must have been successful for his art to have lasted
    for so long.

    Wow ES, thank you for your gentleness and appreciation of art !!

    Indeed, art is a fantastic place of beauty in which we can all meet.
    I studied art history a little and it seemed like it was always better to be a visitor than an artist, because I understood the life experience of artists embroidered in their art vision, but I painted a few years in my youth.
    Are you an artist too, ES? You must be, if you appreciate art so much.
    Your heart is right when it speaks through the signature of your avatar, indeed, what would art be without consulting us with the unknown and what would be the inspiration if the unknown did not let us develop it?
    ... we are truly a symbol in questions that represent us in what we show in the world, and we will always have something to learn.

    The idea of ​​art completes our joy for people for so long that it is good sometimes to remember how long art can last in the world, it cannot be stopped, it can only be transposed and transformed, and it has always offered, never she took, practically as we appreciate her beauty, she smiles at us as well.

    When we look at a picture especially in the vision that precedes our time histories, we would like to approach it as if to see the details in all their beauty but at the same time as if we wanted to include the big picture, and not infrequently, we realize that indeed the shadows highlight the light and the colors define the reality in a flow of shades combined in the simulated vision of art and experience of the painter ...
    I forgot to say "good morning to you, in my morning" on earth!...in my language the answer to this would be: "Good be your heart!"
    ..what beautiful isn't it? It's as if we are in two different worlds on the same planet..one sleeps while the other is awake and vice versa ...,
    The sun lives in us all my dear friend Es!

    I have many favorite artists, I would be happy, someday to meet all of us, and to paint together the avatar of a new beginning softer, brighter and more full of love, it would be beautiful ...

    Thanks also for this thread, where you can pass on the relay in the future, for other people, a relay in our vision of beauty .. because beauty restores love between people, we need love just like art.

    I wish you all the best and have a lot of joy in the sunniest hemisphere of your inner beauty!

    The oldest art is also tradition, and pottery is also an extremely old tradition that I can call art, especially when it respects cosmic symbols in the development of good. I like it a lot, and I like the idea of processing the clay at our fingertips and care. Has anyone tried it?





    Likewise, the manual weaving of carpets and traditional decorations requires a lot of patience and hope for every millimeter of art dedicated to itself.



    I like stained glass, in the perspective of looking at light through color, but especially in the iconographic fractal arrangement of glass in fractions as if of consciousness in full awakening, in full innocence of color in the ideal of life, a true creation.
    The Sainte-Chapelle Paris



    The Endless Column, made by Constantin Brancusi in Targu Jiu, Romania, it is a wooden sculpture and symbolizes the Infinite Sacrifice of Romanian soldiers and it is considered the top point of the modern Art. The column was installed in a park just outside the city, in an open space that gives the impression of exploding from the earth like a trunk that is attracted to the sky.
    I see the column also as a living spectrum of sacred genomic transcendence, a portal to what the universe might mean to each individual, a blueprint in full revolution.



    I see art in us humans, I see art in Nature, only a personalization with art itself gives us a clear perspective on life and that is all beauty.

    Greetings to all art lovers!

    Love,
    Anca
