There is much that we know, but also much that is hidden in the past. Such projects inspire us to look at the objects, their former creators and users – the people of the past – by illuminating hidden aspects of the collections. 1] Robin Lenman, "The Internationalization of the Berlin Art Market 1910-1920 and the Role of Herwarth Walden," in Künstlerischer Austausch.

In this project I also thought about how the objects from the collection were interpreted in the past. Perhaps the only aspect of the Garden of Eden that was uncontrollable was the serpent. In the triptych drawing I reflected on the garden of Eden by depicting the primordial serpent and the world tree.

The drawing is inspired by the small golden snake in the collection as well as my readings of various creation myths and indigenous cultures, where the snake is one of the most important primordial creatures. By replicating the seal in the drawing, I understand more of the shape and the process of making it, how complex and refined it is. Art is created by combining objects from the Archaeological Museum's collections with found objects.

The Garden of Eden is what every dedicated gardener tries to recreate, regardless of plot size.

Encounters with Animals

Vindenes is an area with several known Stone Age sites.[7] The young male goose whale had to be killed. But there were no markings on it that could point me in the direction of the context of the object. Waving birds were a motif already in the Stone Age and are also known from Bronze Age imagery.[9] In the Iron Age, the Migratory Age appears to be the end of the era of the thick flying birds.

This change in symbolism and mentality was a sign of a new era - the rise of kingdoms and aggressive war ideologies.[10] In such a context, small bronze bird pins depicting swans or ducks represent the world that was. Such pins are found in Norwegian and Finnish women's graves from the migration period.[11] Regarding their function, a common interpretation is that they were hairpins.[12] Birds in my hair evoke associations with 1968, Woodstock and peace on earth. In my opinion, a killer whale is depicted here.[16] The sinker could be modeled in this way to transfer the excellent fishing skills of the killer whale to the object.

The date fits well with my simplified narrative that goes from depictions of the "friendly" seals, whales, fatfshes and waders to the lake. Fern, Chris, Tania Dickinson & Leslie Webster (eds.): The Staffordshire Hoard: An Anglo-Saxon Treasure. At least during the object's life - the movement disrupted and silenced in a tomb, following a woman who died sometime in the late 5th century.

Perhaps we recognize a remnant of such a cosmic relationship embedded in the tradition that one should not be preoccupied with spinning during the winter solstice—the circular motions of the spindle can disrupt the cosmic forces and prevent the sun from returning. The figures that make up the rays of the sun, figured on the Holmen vortex, are slightly bent, giving the impression of the vortex in a spinning motion. They prepared the golden thread and fixed it in the middle of the moon hall.

The exact meaning of the Norse words in the poem is rather to make tread or twist tread, but often explained as spinning. Archaeologists and historians usually refer to another phenomenon that drove humanity "from nature to culture": the invention of agriculture. It gives rise to the idea that features of the Adam and Eve story were by no means chosen at random.

Through the crew, the falconer also learns every movement of the bird's body language. Falcons return again and again, as long as the balance in the relationship is maintained.

Realising Urban Imaginaries of Eden

Adam and Eve were cast out of the garden because of sin because they responded to their fleshly desires and tasted the forbidden fruit. Two small nude figures in the middle register of the canvas discuss the fruit that the woman is about to grab. In the 1530s, Francisco Pizarro came to the other side of the South American continent and conquered the Inca city of Cuzco in present-day Peru.

From the same year, however, Fear of the Hare reveals a rabbit's still-warm corpse under the dog that scared her to death; Hell is envisioned in the beast's bloodshot right red eye. This unsustainable juxtaposition culminates in Fate of the Animals (1913) (Fig. 6), which follows Wolves (Balkan War). In one of the first letters to his wife Maria written on September 6 from La Croix-aux-Mines, Marc writes: "The worst is the smell of corpses for many kilometers".[10]

This desolate mountain landscape forms the background of the first sketch, Abstract Landscape (Animal Lying) (Fig. 7). The destruction of form means that the soul can become free.”[19] But there is more to the story of Marc's divine war child. The military field card is an issue to the 8th Bavarian Reserves, an infantry division of the Imperial German Army.

Hal Foster's research introduces Franz Marc's Red Deer II to Brutal Aesthetics as the eye of the divine child in Eden, thus relevant to the journey of his deer motif. Abstract landscape with mythical animals (Red Deer) is an enigma that resonates with an inner feeling of the transformation of one who ascends to the "threshold of the spiritual realm" and releases earthly consciousness. The sculptures of the Quito School had glass eyes and tongues made of leather, which also contributed to the verism of the figures.

At the same time, this artifact was a reminder artifact that reminded the nuns of the importance of cleanliness. The use of this artifact signified the search for a way to reach the original Edenic state, that of paradise encountered during religious pilgrimage. The emphasis of the novena is particularly placed on the progress of the pregnancy and the growth of the baby in the Virgin's womb, fostering feelings of expectation and anticipation.
