“Beatifully, you come from the horizontal of heaven” by Amenhotep III

Many Egyptologists, who are studying on the culture and artifacts of the ancient Egyptian civilization, are researching on the happening in the period especially a mystery whereabout of missing body of Neferiti. A young king, Akhenaten created a first religion after an impression of his father on the sun rays. The newly created religion was called Aten that mean that Sun Ray God. He was convinced that the ray of the Sun gives everything a life. A tree and a flower can grow under the sun ray. An animal can eat the plant and survive. A predator can eat its prey. A human can eat plants and animals to live. It is a similiar to the eco-system. The sun rays help to collect the vapourised water and convert them into condensed water (raining). The raining helps to the vegetable to grow and the water drinkers to drink. Oh no. I am just amazed about Aten (not religion, just philiosphy for me). The sun rays can light on the Earth for people to see clearly. Without the sun rays, we would die. It is the purposes of why he was inspired to create the first religion, Aten, in his kingdom and attempted to influence on his people. Unfortunlately, most of his people were trantumized that the king replaced the religion and the tradition habits as they were very orthodox.

I am surprised that the anicent builders and engineers cut a huge drawing block into smaller blocks which are called Talatat blocks. Look at comparation of two photos


My Visit of M1 Fringe 2010

“Border” at The Chapel of Sculpture Square is a film that is about illegal refugees inside the lorry. My visitation of  this was on 18Jan. It is interesting. It is about what Arabic 4 people chatted about their hopes in the crowd dark box inside the lorry. It is other country ( i have no idea what).

“The Power Of a Cliche” was at The Ateliter of National Museum of Singapore at level 3. It was about photography of women in Iran. But too bad for me as i had visit the  museum on 20jan  but turned to be unavailable. I am disappointed that it was cancelled and missed a chance to understand the religious and social society in Iran. I had no idea what happened to it. perhaps it is due to religious reasons. It’s brief was how women live in Iran where is a Muslim country.

“Last Meal” at Esplanade Tunnel is about the prisoners who chose their last meal before the execution. I find it is quite inspiring as it shows how they are in the society and the law. Few of them declined their last meal because maybe, they were in depression state. Few of them ate light meal. Some of them enjoyed the fine, tasty and nice meal on their final day. For my opinion, they should have last meal before their death otherwise they would be “hungry souls”.

“The Scale of Justice” at Jenade of Esplanade. Th artist was in the prison for 7 years without a guilt. He made a huge artwork. Many of white hand balloons and black hand balloons are separated. The black ones are on upside down and other ones are on ground. You may put black or white hand balloons in the area there.

“Of Flora and  Funan of World” is about illegal wildlife trafficking. I am impressed on the scientist who dared to mailed a package of a book that contained a rare gekeco through a courier. Very bold. Some of his attempts were successfully imported.

The festival will last on 24 Jan. Enjoy there.

My Visit At SAM for Filipino and Mexcian exhibtion

The exhibition is “In the Eye of Modernity: Philippine Neo-Realist Masterworks from the Aten Art Gallery” till3 Jan 2010.

I am impressed amazingly on the glass artworks – one of the Filipino gallery. There are many different shapes of glass containers with different fragrances to express the feeling and the experience. One of the displays is “death” shape with the “death” fragrance that contains light wood. One is “Island” shape glass that contains mint and vanilla.You can smell them to feel what its purpose is.

Other gallery is about Politic, cultural and Faith. Most of Filipino artworks are in dark colour ( more likely to be earth colours)

I select some of the artworks that are very interesting and inspirational.

Heritage Tunnel is the physical objects with the wood and the mirror. The wall of the cylinder is filled with books and one light bulb lean against the wall. Both of the end of the wood cylinder are mirror. You can see the visualised form that look like longer tunnel inside. The visualised form shows you there is no end and no beginning with the wall of books.

A Painting of Cards Of Pilipino that is to show few tarot cards that tell you what they were doing, what they thought and what their positions were. ( I am tarot cards user who can interpret the painted tarot cards’ meaning.) I was surprised that the painter is clever to draw the interpretation in the painting by the tarot cards and the people’s positions and activities. the tarot cards are mostly Arcade Major (I to XXII)

I noticed that some of the artworks show Jesus’s things, suffering and courage like a crown of thorn, his blood and broken cross. I guess Filipino people are Catholic strongly.

Filipino Myth, Legend and Folktales.

The Origin of Grain is very interesting legend in the model (made of glass and plastic ( i guess). The grain farmer had dry land that failed to grow the plants. He saw his god from a heaven and the god offered his hand to him and pulled him into the heaven farming land. The farmer stole the grain seeds from the heaven land and climbed down and planted them in the human land.

The Hunter is about man and animals. The hunter was attacked by the predator and was saved by his hound which managed to find a villager for a rescue.

Pedro And Wich is about hero and witch. While he was riding on the horse, he dropped his handcheif into the fire to kill the flying witch..

Some of the myth artworks show or contain the feathers. I guess it represents a peace.

Artworks from Mexico. I noticed that most of them are more plain than Frida’s inspiring artworks.

Christ Destorys His Cross.

“his metaphors for the victory of justice and social equality over ignorance and oppression” Amazing. It showed how Jesus revived and destroyed the cross and the buildings of ignorance. The label against the broken cross bore Jesus an insult.

Three Ages in the plain painting showed 3 generations.

The Thorn in the cream painting. The woman, the harvester has not fear as the thorn staked her feet. she was trying to pull it away from her feet at the desert.
