"We hate the hawk that lives its life in battle,

and the wolf whose custom is to raid the timid flocks.

But the swallow, for its gentleness, is free from human snares,

and Chaonian doves have dovecotes to live in.

Away with disputes and the battle of bitter tongues:

sweet love must feed on gentle words."

tstarr8481: Oh, our courageous King Vercingetorix after The Siege of Alesia….such an intensity and Caesar fought it extremely well....am thinking that had Vercingetorix been out there with his men such as Caesar it might have had a different result....as Vercingetorix's men far outnumbered Caesar's. Beautiful painting.

lupus_mechanicus: Some use the works and image of great men to pull themselves up. Others use them merely as an illustration, as a threatening premonition of things yet to come.

lupus_mechanicus: Bouguereau, Dante and Virgil
"This painting was inspired by a short scene from the Inferno, set in the eighth circle of Hell (the circle for falsifiers and counterfeiters), where Dante, accompanied by Virgil, watches a fight between two damned souls: Capocchio, a heretic and alchemist is attacked and bitten on the neck by Gianni Schicchi who had usurped the identity of a dead man in order to fraudulently claim his inheritance." Musée d'Orsay

tstarr8481: ...."A young woman is shown standing in a giant piece of amethyst. She is wearing a violet-brown Burgundian dress and her hands are crossed level with her lap on a point of the crystal. This characteristically chaste pose is further emphasised by her downward gaze.

... Two lions, with golden shields attached to their bodies, stand threateningly on either side of a small stream that springs from the rocks and carries gemstones and coral in its current. Because of its colour, amethyst is associated with the violet, the emblem of humility and virginity.

.... The lions are clearly intended as guards and so their shields are military rather than heraldic in function. The spring represents the Water of Life and the gemstones are a reference to Paradise. The image can thus be interpreted as an allegory of the strength of Virginity or Purity, which leads to eternal life. The city in the left distance is influenced to a large extent by the Brussels St Sebastian. This may be attributed almost certainly to the restorer".....nuthin' about * golden tongues of lust*...
