🌎💫 “At first, it is said to have been only chaos. According to Romanian mythology (and not only), with the creation of the cosmos (and implicitly the Earth), chaos, primordial waters do not disappear. Chaos is a dark, cloudy mass of potential, unmanifested water. The Earth, according to Romanian folklore, is suspended in this original current. This takes me to Einstein’s theory that all the world’s relativity forms a matrix, a continuum in which we exist.” #ezoteric #mythology #creation #alchemy #artprint #instart #instartist #alice #allistration #originstory

Nur im Raum der Rühmung darf die Klage  gehen, die Nymphe des geweinten Quells,  wachend über unserm Niederschlage,  daß er klar sei an demselben Fels, der die Tore trägt und die Altäre. –  Sieh, um ihre stillen Schultern früht  das Gefühl, daß sie die jüngste wäre  unter den Geschwistern im Gemüt. Jubel weiß und Sehnsucht ist geständig, –  nur die Klage lernt noch; mädchenhändig  zählt sie nächtelang das alte Schlimme. Aber plötzlich, schräg und ungeübt,  hält sie doch ein Sternbild unserer Stimme  in den Himmel, den ihr Hauch nicht trübt. R.M. Rilke Sonette an Orpheus, VIII. #nymphofthescorpion#lanympheauscorpion#rilke#rainermariarilke#roses#poem#gedichte#lyrik#literatur#throwback#bw#bwphotography#art#artwork#grave#sculptures#accademiagallery#italy#insomnia#aesthetic#nymphe#nymph#mythology#travel#culturetrip#arthistory##takemeback#bookish#moderne#beautiful

LEMURIA. Magnolia fougère. Features Osmanthus, German Chamomile, Pink Lotus, Champaca, Sandalwood, Tonka Beans, Vanilla tincture. I first composed this fragrance about 4 or 5 years ago and wore it into extinction. A few folks that caught a whiff as I passed by snapped up a few bottles and then it was suddenly all gone. Having only made a litre, and largely for my creative experimentation, I didn't bother recreating.... until now. Suddenly I needed it back in my life, and boy am I glad. Now there's 5 litres, just enough to share with a few more natural perfume pals and keep some aside for later. Lemuria perfume was inspired by the mythology of an ancient civilisation that was said to have been submerged in the Indian ocean after a cataclysmic shift in the earth's tectonic plates. Although Lemuria is generally considered to be merely a fanciful place of fiction, we do keep finding unfathomable (ha!) mysteries under the sea, so in my childlike heart of hopes and wishes, I keep believing. My mother and her large family are Norfolk islanders, born into a culture of deep sea tides and open skies that stretch across the horizon into forever. They can catch a fish with no effort, and they see better than anyone else on the planet. The islanders are strong people, the result of many generations that survived the challenges of tough conditions, and went without a lot of things that mainlanders take for granted. They perfected the art of DIY. I attribute my keen sense of smell and my self-determination to 'make it myself' to those incredibly strong women that went before me. Lemuria perfume is my tribute to the spirit of the sea and to the women who venture into it at night, diving deep down through the tumultuous waves into the sparkling light of coral gardens where glittering fish dart and mermen wait for their return. #artisanperfumery #teonereinthalnaturalperfume #magnoliafougere #trnp #oceania #lemuria #mu #mythology #legend #mermaid #heartsongfragrance

Apollo başı kabartmalı madalyon. Yaklaşık MÖ 150-100. Helenistik dönem, Yunanistan. Çapı 7 cm. Apollo, lirinin bir köşesi sol omzunun üzerinden görünen bir müzisyen olarak tasvir edilmiş. Dalgalı saçlarında bir defne çelengi bulunuyor. Saç lüleleri omuzlarının üzerine düşmüş. Yuvarlak madalyonun kenarları, iç kenardaki boncuklarla çevrelenmiş bir defne çelengi. Muhtemelen bir phalera olarak - atın dizginlerinin süslemesi için - kullanıldı. _______________ Roundel with head of Apollo in relief. Dated to ca. 150–100 B.C. Hellenistic period, Greece. Diameter 7 cm. Apollo appears as a musician, a corner of his lyre visible over his left shoulder. There is a laurel wreath on his wavy hair. Tresses fall over his shoulders. The border of the roundel is an encircling wreath of laurel leaves with beading on the inner edge. The roundel probably served as a phalera (an ornament of a horse’s headstall). #arkeofili #arkeoloji #archaeology #ancient #greek #greece #hellenistic #apollo #roundel #mythology #art #yunanistan #sanat #madalyon #mitoloji

Détail de l’étude pour le tableau "Moïse en vue de la Terre promise, ôte ses sandales" ( H 0.23m ; L 0.16m ). « A gauche de Moïse, on voit un jeune homme superbe et vigoureux, la tête couronnée de fleurs sauvages, qui, dans un beau mouvement de jeunesse, se penche sur l’abîme, ardent à regarder les horizons rêvés qui s’étendent majestueusement sous ses yeux. C’est la vie même dans sa splendeur, dans son aspect sacré. C’est la noble créature faite par Dieu, avide de l’avenir, ignorante de la lutte, des combats, des dangers.» GM. . . #museegustavemoreau #gustavemoreau #man #homme #men #etude #dessin #drawing #draw #sketch #painting #oilpainting #peinture #peinturealhuile #symbolisme #symbolism #mythology #mythologie #moïse #religion #art #instart #picoftheday #paris #france

Lyra represents the lyre of Orpheus, the musician and poet in Greek mythology who was killed by the Bacchantes. When he died, his lyre was thrown into a river. Zeus sent an eagle to get the lyre and placed both of them in the sky.

I don’t know if you saw or heard about it, but last night someone with a lot of pull turned out the light in the moon. Luckly, I saw it go out, and promised to send a check tomorrow. They were cool and turned it back on after a couple hours. . . . . . #moon #eclipse #illustration #drawing #modernart #visionaryart #surrealism #darkarts #fantasyart #illustrationart #mythology #innerspace #symbolism #artist #artofinstagram #dreaminterpretation #symbolicart #weirdart #artawakening #spiritualart #painting #lowbrowart #popsurrealism #lowbrowartist #newcontemporary #digitalillustration #fantasyartist

Посейдон — в древнегреческой мифологии верховный морской бог, один из трёх главных богов-олимпийцев вместе с Зевсом и Аидом. Сын титана Кроноса и Реи, брат Зевса, Аида, Геры, Деметры и Гестии. При разделении мира после победы над титанами Посейдону досталась водная стихия. Постепенно он оттеснил древних местных богов моря: Нерея, Океана, Протея и других. . . . #посейдон#боги#богпосейдон#дреанегреческаямифология#Греция#greece#god#poseidon#mythology

One of two statues of Barong at Tirta gangga. Barong is a lion-like creature and character in the mythology of Bali. He is the king of the spirits, leader of the hosts of good, and enemy of Rangda, the demon queen and mother of all spirit guarders in the mythological traditions of Bali. The battle between Barong and Rangda is featured in the Barong dance to represent the eternal battle between good and evil. I saw versions of this dance on the streets of Canggu, and is all the more impressive when combined with the intoxicating scent of incense in 30° heat and the sound of thundering drums reverberating through you, whilst the dancers slither through the streets around peak traffic #mythology #barong #bali #tradition #canggu #tirtagangga #instapassport #instatravel #localculture #storytelling #balinese

O günden beri de kendi şarkısını söyleyen her insan evrenin kalbinin şarkısının daha özgür ve daha güçlü titreşmesine katkı sunar olmuş.

this public library in my city aimed at children has a book containing one of my favourite parts of the volsunga saga: the story of brynhildr (also spelled as brynhild, brunhild, brunhilde), a shieldmaiden put to eternal sleep in a hall surrounded by a ring of fire for offending odin. after prince sigurd rode through the fire and awakened her, the two fell in love and promised to marry none else but each other. however, sigurd ended up forgetting this promise after given a bewitched drink by the mother of princess gudrun and married gudrun instead. a heartbroken brynhildr, eventually married to gudrun's brother, ordered for the murder of sigurd, then leaped into sigurd's funeral pyre herself to join him in death. • entry for @moonrockgarden's #moonrockgarden200 contest. with this, i withdraw my previous entry, which was a moodboard based on the kalevala by elias lönnrot, due to a grave mistake on my part: i put traditional sámi clothes in it instead of traditional karelian clothes. i humbly apologise to my sámi/sámi-descended audience for any offense i've caused. • #niche #meme #memes #moodboard #moodboards #collage #aesthetic #aesthetics #edit #edits #tumblr #nichememe #nichememes #aestheticedit #tumblraesthetic #tumblraesthetics #fiction #folklore #folktale #mythology #norsemythology

THE DIANA OF EPHESUS: who knew that her breasts are actually the scrota of bulls that had been sacrificed? Certainly not I, but then I’ve seen a version at the Villa d’Este in Tivoli where it takes the form of a fountain with water being expressed like milk, one of countless replicas of this cult image of the goddess. This figure of abundance is from the Farnese Collection and was made from alabaster in the Roman imperial period. In other versions somehow I’ve never paid any attention to all the animal protomes on her lower body: sphinxes, Bees, flowers and nymphs. Her head is covered with a kalathos in the shape of a temple, and originally a ribbon would have hung between her hands. #dianaofephesus #mythology #sculpture #archaeology #ephesus #naples #napoli #greekmythology

“Ciò che è fuori di te è una proiezione di ciò che è dentro di te, e ciò che è dentro di te è una proiezione del mondo esterno.
