It’s a Magical World indeed

 [This is a posthumous post -as every other one published here by Arishej after August 13th, 2016-.

Stately walking down a tree, like an elf

It’s not Lothlórien, of course, and these are not Mellyrn-trees, and the model is not Galadriel, but this is a photo without tricks or hoax; the girl elvishly walked down the trunk, barefoot, in part with the aid of a flexible branch that she was handling.

The ardent acceptance of Leda – or maybe her rape

 [This is a posthumous post –like every other one published here by Arishej after August 13th, 2016–.

Beautiful legs and feet – like a heart

It is common to figure a symbolic heart with the fingers of both hands, but not as common to do it with the legs -and not as easy either, if they are very long and straight, like Ari’s. But here is a double try… (Notice that the feet are supposed to figure a smaller heart… Continue reading Beautiful legs and feet – like a heart

Music for Ariel – A strayed recording, by Gould and Bernstein, of Bach WV 1052

[Posted in part on G+ by Ariel herself on 9th November 2015] “Here is an immaculate and glorious interpretation of the Concerto in D minor, BWV 1052 (sadly, only the first movement is available in video as far as I know). The sound is not good, and the image, quite bad (dating from the very early… Continue reading Music for Ariel – A strayed recording, by Gould and Bernstein, of Bach WV 1052
