Kintsugi

DSC00255 (1024x753)Japanese aesthetics have always been a dear teacher for me. Admired not only for their quality but possibly more due to the philosophy that is organically attached  to them.
Kintsugi means… Continue reading / Συνέχεια ->

Anthropos

It is almost common knowledge the various inspiring quotes concerning the importance of not giving up when met by a failure or defeat but to rise and move ahead. They even seem to amalgamate into the core of our society, directing our gaze upwards; as one of the possible origins of  the Hellenic word for human, Anthropos, means:to look upwards.

Pick up your pieces and move forth. Yet, Continue reading /Συνέχεια ->

Where Gods Once Walked II

Tholos

Tholos

The second part of the photo collection “Where Gods Once Walked”.  This time from Hellas and the south western side of Mount Parnassus, Delphi.
 It is with no small amount of disappointment, when I say that the Tholos at the Athena Pronoia site is not by any measure properly exhibited. Just a lousy sign…this country never stops finding ways to hurt herself…

PS. for those willing souls an inquiry: What is the connection between Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man and the Tholos?
PS2. notice the way the large slabs with inscriptions are placed…more about this pattern at next parts of  “Where Gods Once Walked”.

 

Hniohos (Charioteer)

Hniohos (Charioteer)

Δεύτερο μέρος της φωτογραφικής περιήγησης  “Where Gods Once Walked”.  Ο Ομφαλός της Γης, οι Δελφοί.
Το ότι ο αρχαιολογικός χώρος της Αθηνάς Πρόνοιας και του Θόλου βρίσκεται επιεικώς απαράδεκτα αναδειγμένος στον επισκέπτη, είναι άλλη μια απόδειξη της λαμπρής νοοτροπίας του ελληνικού κράτους…
ΥΣ. για τους έχοντες την ιερή περιέργεια: Ποιά η σχέση μεταξύ του Βιτρούβιου Ανθρώπου του Λεονάρντο Ντα Βίντσι και του Θόλου ;

Helios II

DSC09401 aThe Christian use of the all seeing eye symbol is inside a radiating triangle, which represents the Holy Trinity. It is often seen in orthodox and catholic churches.
Truth be told, due to the medieval beliefs that it symbolized the evil eye,  it was absent until  Renaissance artists reclaimed its symbolic power in their art. Continue reading / Συνέχεια ->

Helios I

DSC09389Horus is one of the most ancient gods of Egypt; he dates all the way back to the late Predynastic period.DSC09395
At the Pyramid texts, 3100 BC , an Early Hymn to the Sun, Utterance 587 (1587a,b,1588a):” Greetings to thee, Atum. / Greetings to thee, Khepri. / Greetings to thee, eye of Horus, which he adorned with his two hands completely.”
The inscription reads : Ra Harmarchis, the great god, lord of heaven. The side motif depicts the primeval waters of Nun. Continue reading / Συνέχεια ->
