My new digital restoration is this remarkable 2nd c. AD #sculpture of #Eros (Cupid) on a dolphin, approximating how it might have once appeared in the garden of an ancient Roman villa. But who’s captured who here? #polychromy #art #archaeology #romanhistory @MANNapoli 1/ Image
The statue is on display at the Nat'l Archaeological Museum in Naples, but I can’t find information on its history or find spot. Once apparently part of the #Farnese Collection, a copy of a bronze #Greek original. 📸@MumblerJamie and Darren Puttoc. 2/ ImageImage
A few close-ups reveal that the head is likely modern - probably 18th c. (?), and quite good - but everything else, aside from a couple of fingers, appear to be ancient. The modern curls are very Botticelli-esque! 3/ ImageImageImage

In October, 2018 I attended the #MichaelJackson: On The Wall exhibition at the @NPGLondon Gallery with my mum.

We stood for a long time in awe of @MarkRyden's painting which we all are familiar with, soaking in the fact that this was the original #Dangerous cover painting.

#Art
My apologies for the lighting, flash photography was not allowed at the gallery. Here's the caption beside the painting, some of the text is in the next tweets with a couple of visual references & a video about the construction of the frame. 👇

1. #Thread Kailasanathar #temple
Main Deity: Mahadev Shiva. This temple is situated in #Kanchipuram. It is a temple closely connected with the life history of sage Poosalaar (a devotee of Mahadev). This temple was built by the great king Raja Simha Pallava @sattology
2. in 7th CE. It is a treasure house of #sculpture . Mahadev in the temple was worshiped by Shri Vishnu & Sage Naradha. The idol of Mahadev looks graceful with the presence of stripes on it. @Vaidyvoice @RajiIndustani @harshasherni @Itishree001 @Tanvangi17 @VipashaRanjan
3. The demons other than the thiripuraris were by nature very unruly, harassed the celestial to the greatest extent possible. Shri Vishnu, who wants to destroy the demons, came to understand that Mahadev was the only #Divine power who could destroy the demons.

This is Rishi Bhringi depicted with three legs, pointed beard and having a skeleton-like body.

A great devotee of Bhagwan Shiva.

Pic 1 - one of the pillars in mandap of Thirupporur temple.

Pic 2 -sculpture from Kapaleeshwarar Temple Gopuram

1/n
Story of Bhringi Rishi and why he has 3 legs is an intresting one as it explains the importance of
ShivaShakthi & also teaches Shiva and Shakthi are inseparable.

Bhringi Rishi worshipped Shiva only, ignoring goddess Parvathi(Shakti).

2/n
One day Bhringi along with several other Rishis visited Kailash.All the Rishis worshipped both Shiva & Parvati,did pradakshina around them.
But Bhringi Rishi prayed ,did pradakshina and bowing to Bhagwan Shiva,ignoring Goddess Parvati.

The magnificent tomb of William Cecil, Lord Burghley (1520-1598). Cecil was the chief adviser to Queen Elizabeth I for 40 years, as well as Secretary of State and Lord High Treasurer; certainly the most powerful non-royal of the 16th century. St Martin's Church, Stamford. #Tudor Image
Renowned as a wise and cautious counsellor to Elizabeth, the Encyclopædia Britannica states that, "From 1558 for forty years the biography of Cecil is almost indistinguishable from that of Elizabeth and from the history of England." #Tudor #History Image
Details of the Latin inscriptions on Cecil's tomb, listing his posts as Privy Counsellor, Lord High Treasurer and also Chancellor of @Cambridge_Uni. "Inside this tomb he awaits the second coming of Christ".. Image
