The artist duplicated and arranged iconic Western sculptures in a symmetric line behind the classical Greek goddess of wisdom, Athena, to create a semblance of the thousand-armed form of the Chinese goddess of compassion, Kuan Yin.lesstalkmoreillustration:DAVID PALLADINIhttp://www.davidpalladini.com/  Check us out on Instagram: @Lesstalkmoreillustrationloumargi:François-Nicolas Chifflart La Conscience (1885)heaveninawildflower:The Poppy Tribe.Illustrations taken from ‘The Flowering Plants, Grasses, Sedges and Ferns of Great Britain’ by Anne Pratt.

Through the 17th and 18th centuries, collecting exotic flora and fauna became a way to emote status among the elite. We know that the rare long horned beetle is native to Indonesia, which was a Dutch colony in Struyck’s time. The creature was likely brought to the Netherlands where it would have probably been showcased with items ranging from artworks to shells, crystals, minerals. The collections were seen as a microcosm of the universe, “juxtaposing the wonders of man with those of God or nature.”theancientwayoflife:  ~ Pendant.Date: 16th-15th centuries B.C.Medium: Bronzeeyesaremosaics:“René Lalique A HIGHLY IMPORTANT AND UNIQUE “ROSES” VASE, MARCILHAC CP 48 1913” (quote)
