-So , I said to the rabbit ” Hmmm, I like what you did with this space.” 3.10.17 Pre Easter

    NOTE ALL LINKS AND PICS ARE CLICKABLE

About a year ago around Christmastime, I’d referenced
medieval knights in a post that had it’s inspiration from the
sight of an A framed stone church that stood on
a hill.

That post is here as a reference.

The view I ‘m referring to:

I’d wondered if the reverie had some truth about
the past ,and it’s somewhat fascinating to think of the past and
fantasize what it’d might have been.
And for “fun?” , a conspiracy theory before you look at the
look at the pictures—

Notice the carved
” 4D”
on the ceiling
of the 5th pic.

Could this be the 4rth dimension
that H.G. Wells was referring to in the time machine,carved
by a time traveler of the future -or whatever it is…?

Or …Just maybe…… there’s a “wormhole” inside to
another time…… and so on.

You
can check it out…..I’ll stay here though to keep watch
🙂
Interestingly, the page states “
Their
original purpose is shrouded in mystery, but Historic
England, which describes the caves as a “grotto”
,
believes they were probably built in the late 18th or early
19th Century – hundreds of years after the Templar order was
dissolved.”
or (Hmm maybe some hideout for hobbits or Narnians?)

As far as the “4D”
Realistically it’s likely a marking by the historical
society of England. 🙂 but it was entertaining to give a
futuristic sci fi
thought to this. ….

So, architecture, and a play of nature , weather, the view
and ??? … creates emotions and thought, at the
right time.
classical to match the post-

The right time being, when it happens. 🙂

So take a look……………………….. down this Rabbit

Rabbit hole in farmer’s field leads to ‘mystery caves’

9 March 2017

From the section England

An apparently ordinary rabbit’s hole in a farmer’s field leads to an
underground sanctuary said to have been used by devotees of a
medieval religious order – but is everything what it seems?
According to local legend, the Caynton Caves, near Shifnal, in
Shropshire, were used by followers of the Knights Templar in the
17th Century.
Located less than a metre underground, they appear to be untouched
structurally.

Their original purpose is shrouded in mystery, but Historic
England, which describes the caves as a “grotto”
,
believes they were probably built in the late 18th or early
19th Century – hundreds of years after the Templar order was
dissolved.

He said: “I traipsed over a field to find it, but if you didn’t know
it was there you would just walk right past it. Considering how long
it’s been there it’s in amazing condition, it’s like an underground
temple.”
The tunnel leads to a network of walkways and arches carved out of
sandstone, as well as a font.
Mr Scott said the cave was “quite cramped” and those nearing 6ft
(1.8m) tall would have to bend down to fit in. Some chambers are so
small that those exploring have to enter them on hands and knees.
“I had to crouch down and once I was in it was completely silent.
There were a few spiders in there but that was it. It was raining so
the slope down was quite sludgy but inside the cave was bone dry,”
he added.

The caves were reportedly sealed up in 2012 in a bid to keep away
vandals and practitioners of “black magic”.
While the rumored connection between the caves and medieval
knights seems unlikely, who were the Templars?

The Catholic military order was founded in the 12th Century to guard
pilgrims on their way along the dangerous roads that led to
Jerusalem.
Its members were effectively armed monk-like knights who were
granted certain legal privileges and whose status was backed by the
Church. They were reputed to be the possessors of great wealth and
power.
In 1095, Pope Urban II promised the knights of Europe forgiveness of
their sins if they went on a Crusade to win back Jerusalem for
Christianity. Many responded by “taking the cross” and showed this
act by cutting out red crosses before sewing them into their tunics.

12.8.2016 Dreams….

Art about dreams,… and reality.

As dreams are made on ,

“The cloud-capp’d towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Ye all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind.

We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.”

Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” Scene 4 Act 1

Anthony's

It’s an amass of subjects  for a blog post. 
And, if you’ve happened to come across this and began reading you
might 
ask how or why  I’d make these subjects  relate.
Well , I’m writing it , so I’ll give my best reason in a short 
tale.
  Last Friday I had to take my car, actually  an old jeep
to a auto-mechanic for inspection.
I waited for it  to be checked and  ventured a walk to a
nearby coffee shop,  aka , the Sheetz coffee bar. …
and drank the coffee waiting  outside , appreciating  the
unseasonable warm weather.
Upon a hill, across from where I stood was  the historical “whiskey
point”
, and across from  that,  a R.C Church
that is now ” closed”.
It was maybe the unseasonable warm weather ,  that gave a
historical spirit of mind,
and caused  me  to see it  somewhat different  -,
Today it was an visage that  could “paint”  well
on a canvas filled of the old  castles
of Ireland, Scotland, or Early England.
I noticed The Cross at the top of the “A” frame building was a Celtic style
cross
.
Perhaps   that,….  was what  I’d never took
notice of before.
and it set a light to my imagination.
The thought fragments of  Knights and Arthurian
legends  passed through my mind. 
Would someone far away, centuries ago taken refuge inside a chapel , not unlike
this one?
 -? 
I imagined the bell tower behind it being a watch tower for
Medieval  Soldiers.
or Knights traveling  looking for candle light passing through windows and finding
the stained glass Cross built into the top
above the chapels’ arched entrance
Upon arrival , relieved from battlefatigue , 
hearing the book of hours chanted
and grateful for a night’s lodging.
And  community that visited….
Or  did they move on, avoiding feudal s  that were ever present then,  hearing chant
from  far off in a grotto taken for shelter?
… awaiting  battle again with  salt
and oil
for a self anointing before a
gladiator”s entrance.
  Did they so long ago sense the solemn peace  in 
the symbols of Mother and Child
Heaven and Earth ,  Family and Friend, and  the serenity
of a Silent Night?
And did my imagination have verisimilitude of a time so long ago…
?
And then … I thought  surprising myself. .. do we find those
meanings  now?

So I Hope …        
for The New and Every
Mother and Child , 
Family and Friend,
the Serenity of a
Silent Night.

ART and ARCHITECTURE 2 .23.2015

Piano chambers old and restored

NOTE:YOU MAY HAVE TO RELOAD/REFRESH PAGE TO SEE PICTURES PARALLEL.

ART and ARCHITECTURE

This post is about a picture of  buildings that have been abandoned in Europe, 
specifically East Germany after the Berlin Wall fell,  that likely  have quite  a history.
I found it coincidentally while browsing for piano music. 
I’ll write more about it soon, when I know more….
but the original  photographer is Axel Hansmann.
Below is the original and an  “Adobe” retouch of
what I thought this place,
which is a chamber piano hall, would look like if restored.
Some things to notice,
1. I moved the mirror on the floor to the rt stage wall.
2. I kept the left support beam visible, the wood appeared pretty well preserved from damage.
3. The shadow shading was a little random on the floor, not
actually how light might hit .
4. The ceiling in the original has brick ? under plaster…

This type of art interests me because I have an
interest in old buildings and architecture,
stages, and piano music.

I really don’t know what the name of the place is, or what it had looked like before.
I also don’t know what the writing above the stage means.
I did my best to remove the plaster dust that covered it (art wise).
To avoid further painstaking details of artistic restoration,
I placed Curtains along the wings to the left and right of this stage.
Likely it didn’t have curtains, valences or chairs, I’d think there’d be 
vestiges of them left, somewhere in the dust and unsalvagable.
