Old School

The book begins with the line “It was a dark and stormy night,” an allusion to the opening words in Edward George Bulwer-Lytton‘s 1830 novel Paul Clifford. Im sure almost everyone has read this book in middle school, i know i did and i loved it. I also found it kind of funny that the school system would let middle schoolers read such a trippy ass book. I havent read all the books in the series but i defenitely recommend it, they are out of this world…

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.
