Modern Renaissance

Modern Renaissance

The great art of Renaissance painting, as it turns out has still not lost its relevance today. Recently, a competition was held among the works of contemporary artists who painted portraits of famous Hollywood actors made under the Renaissance. It is interesting to see the actors, (known to many of the different films) as if they lived somewhere in the age of 15-16 so m.Pri drawing were used artistic techniques used by the great masters of the Renaissance. The result was a real artistic reconstruction of bygone time, but with modern characters in the title role.

Indian erotic sculptures

Erotic sculptures in Indian temples was always a strange and incomprehensible to many Europeans, brought up in a very different religious traditions. If you take Christianity, then a girl in a short skirt, even in the church will not go very well, but here in a religious temple where Hindus also pray to God, and such a frank eroticism. The fact that attitudes toward sex and sexual relations in sunny India is not like us. Why is Christianity, Islam, even in the atheist Soviet Union, sex is always perceived as something sinful, or indecent, associated with fornication. You can not remember such a funny old slogan of the Soviet Union: “In the USSR, no sex!”

India

India – an amazing country of contrasts. Birthplace of great wisdom, which at the same time continues to be a place of terrible poverty and unsanitary conditions. The country where the luxury five-star hotels are next to the squalid slums, which has majestic architectural monuments of antiquity, and where many people live in the open air. Whatever was not different India, this country has always tempts us with its mysterious uniqueness, surprising spirit of knowledge.

Osho Dynamic Meditation

Posted by on

Osho

One of the common stereotypes about meditation is the idea that meditation – a very passive phenomenon, and the people who practice it have to sit still. Today I have a little break down this stereotype, because meditation – not always a passive seat to the pope in the lotus position (or posture on the couch). There is also an active meditation, or dynamic (from the word “dynamic” ie, movement).

Religion in ancient Greece. Gods. Part One.

Posted by on

Боги Олимпа

Gods in the religion of the ancient Greeks too much, but they are all very interesting and charismatic characters. It is worth noting that the gods of the Greek pantheon, even more like ordinary people than actually on the gods. As they say, if the gods created humans in his own image, people will pay them back in the same coin. In short, the Greek gods are all the same drawbacks as the ordinary mortals, sometimes they are just envious, vain, cunning, (even cunning) love to quarrel with each drugom1, do some dirty tricks and so on. Maybe the thing is that in mythical stories about the gods, the creators of the myths on the example of the gods, just wanted to show just how many human vices and weaknesses. No wonder the Gospel is written: Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, you are gods? “(Jn. 10:34)

Sandro Botticelli

The hero of today’s publication will be another outstanding artist of the Renaissance, known to all as Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510). Although Sandro Botticelli – just a pseudonym, real name of the artist was Alessandro Filipepi. Botticelli was a senior contemporary of such prominent figures of the Renaissance, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo Buonaroti, and Rafaeel Santi. It so happens that the work of Sandro Botticelli appeared as if in the shadow of his more famous younger colleagues, and for a long time, his brilliant paintings were unknown, currently lying somewhere in a warehouse, covered with dust on the margins of history. Only in the 19th century, thanks to the efforts of British scientists and art historian’s brilliant work of this artist was rediscovered and his paintings took their rightful place in the world museums.
