Musical Instruments

the detail in this painting is amazingly good. i just recently realized that there were music notes in the clouds and sky…. every living thing had something to do with a musical instrument.

 

The trumpeting of the elephants is a sound of rejoicing that erupts with the appearance of their king, their master. The elephants call other animals and birds to celebrate, with the occasion being life itself! Voices of the creatures obedient to the challenge blend into the polyphonic oratorio of joy and exultation that swells until it resonates throughout the heavens. It is fitting that elephants should lead this symphony. When the world was young, the elephant had strength and power over all. He also embodied wisdom, longevity, loyalty, tolerance, and compassion. Sound is the path into the cosmos, where the individual timbres and voices are as important as the entire universal orchestra. In Greek tradition, a lyre made from antelope horns was the instrument of Apollo, the god of prophecy and music. Playing it, Orpheus tamed wild animals, and charmed trees and mountains. According to Hindu doctrine, when Krishna played the flute, the cosmos started to move and creation of the world began.

I dont think i could ever begin to describe this painting in any way, no words can describe my reaction or knowledge of such a painting as harmonic looking and sweet as this, even though its a little daunting with the wings sticking out of the pages.

Symbol of divine revelation. On the Greek mosaic of XI century is represented Christ, holding in hands the Bible. As asserts Borges (Jorge Luis Borges. Letters of God) any book is a ramified labyrinth and, going on it, it is always possible to encounter the Book of the Books. Translucent, nacreous colors emphasize virgin purity of image of Mary holding baby Jesus, wings of the butterfly behind her personify the soul aspiring to the blue skies. Symbolism of the picture where the figure of Virgin Mary seemingly merges with the Book of Books, associates with figurativeness of the fresco “Annunciation” pictured by Italian master of Early Renaissance Fra Angelico. It represents Archangel Gabriel appearing before Maria as she was absorbed in reading the Bible – the passage in the Book of Isaiah, where was spoken about the virgin who will give birth to the son.

i feel that when you look at a certain piece of art, it moves you in a certain way. whether its good or bad who knows but it gives you feeling and opens a world that, until then might have been closed.

When i look at the sunrise in the mornings, i always get reminded of this painting… i cant tell if its a sunset or sunrise, but i like to believe the latter. Either way this painting speaks very loud to me…

The egg symbolizes the rising Sun and the beginning of life. In many myths about the creation of the world, a cosmic egg is laid by a giant bird in a formless, ancient ocean. The egg splits into two and the sky and the earth appear from the halves of it, while the sun is seen in the yolk. You can see in the picture that the newborn Sun still hasn’t taken its final shape yet. Shreds of primary matter continue to stream from the burning sphere rising over the ocean. According to Polynesian myth, the Hawaiian Islands were born from such an egg
