Revisiting tonight this blog of my late sister (in a late hour of the night, too), I find that my first post here, from August 16th, 2016, precedes directly my last one, published just a while ago. Both of them speak about the same —or almost—… Eight months and ten days ago, three days after… Continue reading Should I Fear a Dreadful Angel? – [A forcible republication of my first post here]
A personal view about an Angel by Francesco Jerace One of my favourite sculptures representing overtly masculine angels is a marble group by Francesco Jerace, located in the Cappella Greco at Cosenza, Calabria, Italy. It is known as Fanciullo Morto e Angello (Dead Boy and Angel) and was made in 1900. The grace of the Angel… Continue reading Angelic Eroticism
Being the continuation of a first post on this same blog: ‘Hommage à Terpsichore’, after Salvador Dalí – Faceless Beauty This collection was conceived in 1977, and the first sculptures were cast in 1984 —five years before the artist’s death—. It is beautiful and often spectacular, but I don’t believe it was wholly designed by… Continue reading Some more Sculptures from The Stratton Institute’s Collection “Dalí Universe”

No need to comment much about the dishevelled hair above and below, the bandana or the associated posts on Polyvore. This is an irrelevant post to almost everybody except the poster himself… but I like it 🙂 About Arthur Schopenhauer —who was a detestable misogynist, but a perfect genius anyway— I just feel like bringing… Continue reading Beautiful “bad hair” & A deep insight by Arthur Schopenhauer -lover of cats
“Better Tomorrow” by Yuumei Here down is another illustration by this great Chinese artist: Yuumei. I post it in vertical position for evident reasons of format: – – Two enlarged partial views in their natural position 🙂 : – – – (You may see and enjoy a previous post on Yuumei’s work HERE.)… Continue reading Girl in Wasteland… – Another Delightful Illustration
“Boundless” by Yuumei Just look at it and get stunned. It’s drawn by a Chinese person of great talent, and I’m lost for words to express my admiration toward her. (To see the image in full resolution —and it’s worth the time; it’s a must—, you may go here.) She explains about herself: “I grew… Continue reading Girl in Wonderland – A Delightful Illustration
