Finding art in remote places is exciting. This piece is a painted bull skull found in Cedar City, Utah, USA:
Artist Lydia Brescia. She calls it Medicine Man Bull Skull. “It has a ‘third-eye’ on the handprint, lightning bolts shooting from hands and “glo in the dark paint” on the inside, garnet on antler slice near the end of the nose, dream catcher, hawk and Peacock feathers and bear decorations along with aboriginal painting!”
I found progressive photo images of the painting that has become the header of this blog. So, I put them together to make a one minute movie. The piece is acrylic on canvas, 3′ x 4′, and is titled “Portrait of a Girl.” Everyone who sees this piece asks, “Who’s the Jim Morrison fan?” which has me considering a title change. I have to admit, I see the resemblance.
Here it is:
The hardest metal yields to sufficient heat. Even so must the hardest heart melt before sufficiency of the heat of non-violence. And there is no limit to the capacity of non-violence to generate heat.
