Buna buna!
faina perspectiva si buna alegere pt conversia in alb si negru
sharp si lumina excelenta
permite mi te rog sa postez si eu o nota despre Brancusi
ma bucur enorm ca faci cunoscuta arta lui pt nu foarte multi stiu de sculpturile lui din Romania
Bafta multa!


Around the Table of Silence, Brancusi arranged 12 symbolic chairs, at an equal distance one from the other. The name of "chairs" actually hides a sacred reality: the hourglasses, one for each Sun Sign, are measuring the flowing of time. From the Destiny Table placed by Brancusi on the river's side, along the flowing water, never coming back (folklore), the time given to human life is developing from East to West, marked by various thresholds, and then, from Earth to Heavens, the eternal time, illustrated by the cyclical rhombus of the Endless Column an ethnological analysis proposed by Ion Ghinoiu

By concentrating on pure form, Brancusi freed sculpture from its 19-th century pictorialism and prepared the way for the 20-th century abstract sculptors. As influential today as during the artist's lifetime, Brancusi's sculpture and his ideas about art continue to challenge and inspire contemporary artists. He died in Paris on March 16, 1957.
