Angelic Eroticism

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

Some more Sculptures from The Stratton Institute’s Collection “Dalí Universe”

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”

Before Crossing the Dark Veil into the Light

In Loving Memory of Ari Fontrodona – Called to meet the Father (or Mother), and our own parents, on August 13th – 2016. May she be in Grace and perfect happiness, as she always intended —and often accomplished— in her earthly life, in spite of everything. When she named this blog SOMETHING BEYOND, she really… Continue reading Before Crossing the Dark Veil into the Light

Beautiful “bad hair” & A deep insight by Arthur Schopenhauer -lover of cats

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

A Variation on “Showing off Long Legs” – Made for boys

– I think this mod is better -it is also cheaper- than the original set: it is super cheap 🙂 Does anybody wish to make a comment? Does anybody opine that boys may aspire to look cute, dressing chic and girl-like?… Shouldn’t boys (and grown men) dress like they feel like dressing, disregarding all social… Continue reading A Variation on “Showing off Long Legs” – Made for boys

Ari’s Fashion (XI) – A Summer Night’s Fancy

A caprice of mine in pink & mint, with fireworks, never seen shoes, lovely skirt and jacket… and one Hindu prince at my side, smiling and holding my hand 🙂   (May I add that that Prince couldn’t ever be (unfortunately!) Prince Dakkar -Captain Nemo, for those who do not recognize the name-…? I wish… Continue reading Ari’s Fashion (XI) – A Summer Night’s Fancy

Ari’s Fashion (IX & X) – (Two sets with white dresses)

Despite her love for sprightly colours, Ariel always liked to wear white dresses. She had few, but wore them often (when she still wore dresses, since lately she was quite more a shorts & t-shirts’ girl). No more comments from my part about the outfits, aside from saying that the “Animale Gardner” dress featured in… Continue reading Ari’s Fashion (IX & X) – (Two sets with white dresses)

‘Hommage à Terpsichore’, after Salvador Dalí – Faceless Beauty

I had never liked Salvador Dalí as a person, and moreover, I learned to deeply dislike him when I knew of his cruelty with animals and some other nasty facets of his character and behaviour. Maybe he had mental issues or maybe not, but anyway I could not ever forgive some things he did (and… Continue reading ‘Hommage à Terpsichore’, after Salvador Dalí – Faceless Beauty

Ari’s Fashion (VII) – Call me (take me to a ride tonight!)

– — – Ariel is already gone, but you can still follow her on Polyvore for a while -she had many clothing sets and ideas saved for publishing some day -ranging from the most casual teenager’s way to quite sober, but classy, clothing for women and non-binary persons of any age. – – – –… Continue reading Ari’s Fashion (VII) – Call me (take me to a ride tonight!)

Ari’s Fashion (VI) – A Last Dinner in Perpignan

February 2016 – I have collected this clothing and makeup together with some effort and more pain. They are, with respect to the top and the skirt, not exactly the same that Ari wore at that meaninful supper, and I have seeked for very similar ones (her top had a lower cut -almost to the… Continue reading Ari’s Fashion (VI) – A Last Dinner in Perpignan
