Tanya Hindmarch has designed festive holiday shop windows on Madison Avenue that appeal to our kids as well as to our ‘inner child’’! A handsome Nutcracker stands at attention in front of a colorful set of swings made from purses, and a ferris wheel set against red and white striped wallpaper reminiscent of the interior of a circus tent, animates the imaginary funfair.
This terracotta theater mask was found in an Egyptian burial chamber and is thought to represent the Greek god Dionysus, patron of the theater. The magnificent chromatic faience finish dramatizes its facial expression, and although these masks were too fragile and brittle for use in the theater, they often decorated the homes and gardens of wealthy Greek patrons of the arts. The mask dates back to 200 AD. #carolepintofinearts#metropolitanmuseum#artgallerynewyork
This marble female bust echoes the iconoclastic tenets of XXth century Modernism, with its Modilgliani like cylindrical neck, fluid Brancusi shaped oval face, and Henry Moore breasts barely visible on a smooth torso. Its stylized forms and minimalist features are all the more astonishing when one learns that it’s from the Cycladic period and dates from 2000 BC. It ‘s difficult to understand how ‘primitive civilizations’ were capable depicting their deities in such sophisticated fashion, and calls to mind T.S. Eliot’s words: ‘There is only the fight to recover what has been lost and and found and lost again and again...’

This magnificent page is taken from a late XVIth century Iranian manuscript entitled ‘Discourse of the Birds’, which describes the difficult journey of a flock of birds on a spiritual voyage. The gold leaf heightens the delicate precision of the foliage as well as plumage of the peacock and ducks along the water’s edge. The sprawling tree branches that reach beyond the edge of the page, combined with the sword held in attack mode by the figure hiding on the right, underline the challenges awaiting these creatures.
A penny for your thoughts? Mert Avadya, a student at the School of Visual Art, designed this glittery, clinky, perhaps cumbersome dress made out of pennies - 10 lbs. worth $28.52 to be exact, enough to make 3000 wishes into the fountain of your choice. How cool is that?
