I have been dealing Image.
What is my true image and where does my image of my self come from???
Photo in Mirror with Doll (image)As I have been going through this journey of my true identity and how I walk in it interesting things come up recently.
Our local museum has a fascinating show Called "Breath of Heaven Breath of Earth"
When I go to Europe or NY or large museums I usually only take a brief look at the Ancient Middle East Sculptures etc. I don't have time to really get into them. Though I find them interesting now that I make dolls.
But now with a show in my own town I have time to understand and appreciate this art. The museum show and the lectures give me an opportunity to not only reflect on the Beauty of the Art but also to reflect on the times and the Biblical story's of Abraham and Ur and the different gods that are mentioned in the Scriptures that are part of my studies and faith daily.
It has brought to life the places and the people. I can see sculptures like the votive sculptures that represent the looks and the hopes and dreams of an individual of that time.
Wow…right there..real people of Ur and what they believed and looked to for their life and truth.
These where the first people to write. So we know things about their understanding beyond what can be see in the artist images.
|My favorite piece in the show|
|Isn't it beautiful!!!|
But last night I had more insights from the lecture by Dr. Jean Evans
