These are some of my favorite paintings. The accuracy and character of each individual’s face and forms is a marvel. Adding to it is they were painted around 2000 years ago. #fayum #fayumportraits - - - - #egyptian #portrait #painting #classical #roman #art #byzantine #coptic #greece #encaustic #tempera #faiyum #necropolis #classicalart

Darkened the background color of the face and experimented with highlights in the robes...learning iconography with the Christ Pantocrator of St. Catherine’s Monastery at Sinai as inspiration.

kunstmeisje. Het Bode museum dankt zijn naamsverandering aan de eerste conservator

Het Bode museum dankt zijn naamsverandering aan de eerste conservator van het museum: Wilhelm von Bode. De naamsverandering is in 1965 toegepast. De vaste collectie bestaat vooraanstaand uit Byzantijnse- en gotische kunst, een enorme munten collectie en veel beelden (hout of steen). Zeker mooi is de vele altaarpanelen die ze tentoonstellen, je kan ze goed bekijken doordat ze vrij staan opgesteld in de ruimtes! #bodemuseum #art #kunstmeisje #gothicart #byzantine #medievalart #kunst #gotischekunst #artpanel #altarpiece #berlin #dutchgirlsinmuseums #ihavethingswithmuseumpics #artgirl #museumgirl

The formation and the education of the great saints who shall come at the end of the world are reserved for her. For it is only that singular and miraculous Virgin who can produce, in union with the Holy Ghost, singular and extraordinary things.”⚜️ “All the gifts, virtues and graces of the Holy Ghost are distributed by Mary, to whom she wishes, when she wishes, the way wishes and as much as she wishes.”⚜️ St. Louis de Montfort, True Devotion to Mary⚜️ #jesuschrist #virginmary #mary #immaculata #maria #mother #catholic #catholicchurch #romancatholic #byzantine #jesuit #jesuits #franciscan #ofm #rosary #immaculateconception #fatima #sspx #tlm #latinmass #militiaimmaculata #militiaimmaculatae #military #veteran #pray #god #holyspirit #miraculousmedal

"I recently found this sweet label @enaproducts that I had to try because it was my late Grandma’s name and now every time I use them I am reminded of her." Thank you so much @bijouxhomes ! This was a lovely serendipitous social media moment. Ena was named in honour of my grandma, who was a beautiful woman inside and out. I am reminded of her every time I'm making new recipes, sealing jars and packing orders. It's a truly wonderful thing to be surrounded by love and good vibes every day. - Lindy

Worldly men want a girl that wears tight dresses and sleeps with them... Myself, I am simply asking for a church loving, rosary praying warrior, family oriented lady that likes traditions, will let me go to Latin mass and Byzantine Divine Liturgy, will pray a daily rosary with me and understand the importance of no meat on Fridays. But seriously, Church loving girls that fear the Lord are the best

HEKATE (Hecate)

Series of Gods and Goddesses of ancient city of Perge HEKATE (Hecate) was the goddess of magic, witchcraft, the night, moon, ghosts and necromancy. She was the only child of the Titanes Perses and Asteria from whom she received her power over heaven, earth, and sea. Three metamorphosis myths describe the origins of her animal familiars: the black she-dog and the polecat (a mustelid house pet kept by the ancients to hunt vermin). The dog was the Trojan Queen Hekabe (Hecuba) who leapt into the sea after the fall of Troy and was transformed by the goddess. The polecat was either the witch Gale, turned as punishment for her incontinence, or Galinthias, midwife of Alkmene (Alcmena), who was transformed by the enraged goddess Eileithyia but adopted by the sympathetic Hekate. Hekate was usually depicted in Greek vase painting as a woman holding twin torches. Sometimes she was dressed in a knee-length maiden's skirt and hunting boots, much like Artemis. In statuary Hekate was often depicted in triple form as a goddess of crossroads. Her name means "worker from afar" from the Greek word hekatos. The masculine form of the name, Hekatos, was a common epithet of the god Apollon. 📷Taken in Antalya Museum. The statue was found during excavation of ancient city of Perge (I will update it later) #Perge #anatolia #antalya #museum #antalyamuzesi #history #historicpreservation #statue #myth #mythology #romanmythology #greekmythology #byzantine #traveller #exploreturkey #turkiye #canon_id #canon_indonesia #canonphotography #canon
