    Stunning.

The Belvedere Apollo.

Japanese ink painting (sumi-e) of the founder of Zen Buddhism Bodhidarma/Daruma. I always enjoy the subtility of these ink paintings, especially the ones depicting Daruma. Somewhat rough and savage looking, not at all like Western images depicting their saints. The myth goes to say that he cut of his eyelids so he couldn't fall asleep durings his 7 years meditation in a cave.

Myth of Creation--Aristophanes' Speech, The Symposium, by Plato

Statue of the myth of Apollo and Daphne...Bernini, amazing, exquisite, the way Bernini sculpted Daphne's fingers becoming branches is so beautiful!

Brings back memories of a fantastic seminar with Dr. Silvia Montiglio, now at Princeton
