As a child I never heard one woman say to me, “I love my body.” Not my mother, my elder sister, my best friend. No one woman has ever said, “I am so proud of my body.” So I make sure to say it to Mia, because a positive physical outlook has to start at an early age.

Displayed in the Saint-Étienne church in France is the figure of René de Chalon, Prince of Orange. The prince died at the young age of 25 during the siege of Saint-Dizier in 1544. 
Rather then memorialize him in the standard hero form, his wife requested (or René himself requested, or possibly both) that he be shown as “not a standard figure but a life-size skeleton with strips of dried skin flapping over a hollow carcass, whose right hand clutches at the empty rib cage while the left hand holds high his heart in a grand gesture.” (Source)

The Visionary Worlds of Agostino Arrivabene

Artist on Tumblr | Facebook

MIROIR Magazine:  There is a spiritual quality to your paintings, what inspires the visions you paint?

Agostino Arrivabene:  I think it’s a dimension of suspense and anticipation. Since I was a child, when I lost my mother prematurely, this loss placed me in front of the unknown, and that which abruptly takes life. For me, death, from the start, became synonymous with questions without answers and for a long time death became identified with a voyage without destination, a search towards the unknown. The certainty and conviction in myself grew roots towards that diaphragm that divides the real world from the spiritual. The diaphragm that separates and the vibrations necessary to give pictorial substance to my iconographic world.
