    fantasizing about being back in mexico since it's the easter season. while i was there, i was blown away by the easter celebrations in the streets.






    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Some simple illustrations I like:

    Rafael de Penagos

    This is not my hair, unfortunately.

    Aw, I'm excited to see the pic.
    haha...it's funny to me that you said that because that's what I do. I just get so memorized/hypnotized by *ooh look at all the pretty colors...*

    The images I had saved on my computer for you though are these two...
    I hope you had a great Easter!

    I saved a picture of this sculpture made by an artist (I don't remember his name) at the International Art exhibition in Venice last year:

    He also made this (revisiting the Three Graces theme):

    The images are very small on my tablet but they both look like Canova' s work...the top image appears to be the same sculpture as the one I posted (have you seen it in the Lourve? They have it positioned perfectly for natural lightening.)

    I don't know where Canova's Graces is housed...but I do not believe I've seen it in person before...I feel I would have remembered. The Three Graces at the Lourve is Helenistic and breathtaking as well. The Lourve

    Thank you so much for showing me - I love it.

    I think you've missed a detail, you should see it on a computer (with which you can enlarge the picture) if you have one
    He has somewhat revisited the theme in a very sensual way...

    About the three graces I think the artist got the inspiration from various models including the famous Raphael's painting as you can see:

    Okay, I was able to view the images from my laptop/notebook/large computer...and you're right I did miss some details haha... primarily that these are small, 'tabletop' sculptures and that this artist's rendition of (Canova-inspired) 'the Three Graces' is kinda lesbianie haha.




    ^here's Canova's 'Cupid & Psyche' Louvre, Paris (stealing another opportunity to post)





    ^here's Canova's 'Three Graces' which I learned is housed at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (and so I'm assuming I've seen this since I used to live in London and have been to this museum a couple of times but...?)





    ^here's the Hellenistic 'Three Graces' Louvre, Paris

    The Raphael 'Les Trois Grâces' with the Bocce balls is my favorite oil of these three so thank you for that!
