Divine and Beautiful ‘Balinese Painting’ of Ma Saraswati, Devi of Music, Art, Wisdom and Knowledge, from Bali Indonesia.

#Balenese #Painting #Art #Bali Image
One of the largest temples of Ma Saraswati is in Ubud, Bali named Pura Taman Kemuda Saraswati. Amid Ubud’s striking landscape, the Pura Taman Saraswati Temple quietly invites Devotees out from the surrounding farms, rice paddies, and dense forests and into its mesmerizing grounds Image
Followers of Balinese Hinduism find solace in the temple as they dedicate their time in the divine structures that were built in accordance to the rules, style, guidance and rituals found in Balinese architecture.

A Catalogue of Stray Observations by a Superannuated Flâneuse

Summer’s here and the bars are crowded, along with the beaches,
malls and every other place we go to forget the fragility of life
in a world where foolishness masquerades as courage
and we all think we’re invincible until the day we wake up dead.

The flags are flying in Tokyo but the Reaper’s there too –
moving silent and hungry as he feeds his insatiable appetite,
feasting on the multicolored souls of pilgrims
from 206 countries come to cheer the best and brightest
in a dizzying catalogue of competition celebrating
the triumphs of bodies devoted to human perfectibility.

After a successful weekend with Biomass again, I figured I'd share a bit about its inception 🧵⬇️

The original paper that this graphic is based on was published by @yinonbaron @MiloLabWIS @WeizmannScience. It came across my desk working at Visual Capitalist and the crew wanted to see what I could do with it.…
There was already a graphic explaining the key findings in the paper, shown here. It's a really nice Treemap visualization using a #voronoi pattern (random Fun Fact: voronois are everywhere in biology: bone matrices, cell shapes, wing scales, etc.) A treemap in voronoi style showing the distribution of bioma

1/6 Cannonball Adderley was one of my favorite jazz alto saxophone players. He had a very strong influence on my playing.

As a teenager, I saw him perform at Birdland with Miles Davis and John Coltrane. They played classic tunes from the "Milestones" album.

It was a once…
2/6 in a lifetime experience.

Looking back, I realize now how blessed I was! I know many can only dream of something like that.

Years later after Blood, Sweat & Tears had “made it” we invited Cannonball to sit in with us at our concert at the Greek Theater in L.A.
3/6 The afternoon of the gig, around sound check time, I met Cannonball backstage.

I went over to shake his hand but he just waved me off and gave me a big hug instead!

That night, he used a BORROWED alto from a local music store - because his horn was broken. 😳

all i want to do is watch the sun go down
while holding your hand
both of us saying good night to the day

instead a blue wave roared up from nowhere
and swamped my heart
took it right out to sea
there was no sunset
no you
only whitecaps and wild wind
now i hear a cello being bowed
so deeply beautiful
so sad
the salt water hovers but it won't fall
i sit in the cold wind
hoping it will carry your voice
on that richly woven melody

A highlight 🧵from the @RaoulGMI & @punk6529 conversation - highly recommended for anyone interested in #NFTs and #crypto
@punk6529: "I learn by doing. I have gut and then... I don't believe people can understand anything without doing it. [...] That's the gap we have with regular system people and regulators. They've never done it."

That's my own crypto journey in 2 sentences 💯
NFTs were the first consumer application of the very technical crypto space until then. NFTs are chain agnostic, people love the art and don't care about the underlying tech (unless they do*).

The emperor is dead *and* immortal! And a blonde. My newest digital restoration is Augustus as Jupiter, the king of the gods. A melding of Roman realism with Greek Classicism. A lot to unpack here … #polychromy #archaeology #art 1/ ImageImage
The statue was unearthed in Cumae, a wealthy Roman city near Naples, once a Greek colony and home to the prophesying sybil. The restorers were able to use ancient coins and cameos depicting the Olympian #Zeus and Augustus as Jupiter to guide their reconstruction work ... 2/ ImageImage
Coins like the one below, depicting Augustus as Jupiter Terminus, holding a winged thunderbolt and Victoria. The goddess is also shows up on the reverse of the coin that Augustus minted after the battle of Actium: Victoria on a globe, holding a wreath. 3/ ImageImage

Much has been written of the silence of stones,
their ungiving presence weighting the world
with dumbshow when blessing is most needed.
But there is one rock, when round and ripe,
whose chimes in silver, sometimes gold,
echo not in the ears but in the heart.
When Diana waxes in full glory, take yourself
out into the night and stand in her embrace,
your vault of sorrows open to wisdom transcending
all that can be proved by the unforgiving sterility of science.
Look to the sky as you weep for the sound of a gentle voice
and you shall have your healing.

1. The #artistsontwitter community is amazingly talented. I've supported many fan-run Kickstarters for artbooks. Now publishers are now getting in on it. Sadly fan artists who are not contract-savvy are open to exploitation...
2. I've seen a lot of tweets about an upcoming themed fan art book to be printed by an indie publisher. They set up a Kickstarter & raised over $160,000. Some artists were invited to create art for the book & subs were opened for everyone else.
3. To submit, artists were required to send in a completed work of art & wait to see if they were selected.
If selected they would not be paid a cash fee.
They would get a (insert drumroll...)
Free book, and of course, Kudos. (Whoop)🙌🙌🙌

Scaling a #metaverse is V difficult. We often get asked how we intend to maintain our high bar of quality. TL;DR it won't be easy, but our crazy talented team is up to the task! In this🧵we look at some common pitfalls of game design & how they apply to massive online worlds. 1/
1st, what is a #metaverse? It's a social media platform, a massive multiplayer online world, & an ecommerce platform, all in one - basically, a 3D version of the internet. It's incredibly ambitious for 1 company to build Instagram, Electronic Arts, & Amazon all in one product. 2/
Or is it? #TBT '02: big tech companies line Craigslist's front page. Uber, Tinder, Doordash, Zillow...all on an integrated platform, a 2D #metaverse. But, user experience matters: as they went mobile & processing power📈, expectations📈. This pattern will likely apply here. 3/

El Altar Mayor de la Basílica de Santa María dei Frari de Venecia está presidido por la asombrosa Asunción de la Virgen de Tiziano.
El colorido y la fuerza de la composición impresionan.

de Giovanni Bellini (1488), con marco original de Jacopo da Faenza.

The architectural images of Setenay Alpsoy's daily reflections are accompanied by the abstract moments of Hasan Baran Kurtoğlu's blurry, fragmented and layered state of daily portrait reflections that seem insignificant in the memory.

Can Köylüoğlu, on the other hand, deals with "violence against women", which has unfortunately become a part of our daily life. Image

Have you ever heard of the “Orion Correlation Theory”? It’s the correlation between the location of the 3 largest pyramids & Orion's Belt of the constellation Orion, & that this correlation was intended as such by the original builders of the #Giza #pyramid complex. #Archaeology Image
The Orion correlation theory was put forward by Robert Bauval, & the theory was first published in 1989 in Discussions in Egyptology, volume 13. It was the subject of a bestseller, The Orion Mystery, in 1994. Source:…
The evidence shows patterns of stars that is frozen on the ground at Giza in the form of the 3 pyramids & the Sphinx represents the disposition of the constellations of Orion and Leo as they looked at the moment of sunrise on the spring equinox during the astronomical age of Leo. ImageImageImage

For years, the main criticism of Cthulhu is Hard to Spell was that the cover did not relate to any of the interior stories.

Well, we fixed that this year by creating a story related very heavily to the awesome cover by Aaron Alexovich.
Our story features a drag down wrestling match between Cthulhu and Zeus with the fate of the universe hanging in the balance.

~~~ NFT /\RT Sunday Vol. 5 ~~~

A weekly collection of the (subjectively) best NFT art posts I came across on Twitter.

Lean back and enjoy the show!
I'm really glad that today is Sunday and I can focus on beautiful art, instead of the next Twitter drama. 😄

It's 11 pm here, but I'm sure it's a GM somewhere in the world right now. That's why we start with a GM photograph by the legendary Jord Hammond

If this isn't your first visit, you might know about my little obsession with animated AI art.

The results blow my mind every time.
