Idea came, while reading the great letters of the french revolutionist Mirabeu ( but his love letters are awful!) :no:. So I tried to draw him, while reading him:) There are rumours that he was killed by Jesuits ( but that's no problem, cause in Jesuit believe they are allowed to kill, torture, lie and everything, as long as it is "well- meant", you can always find reasons, when you search long enough, so it is quite comfortable for them and it is of course always for religion, what they do ;))

:iconttaasst: One of the best men, ever lived! Voltaire! :heart:
Inveigled by a spy named Beauregard into a real or burlesque confession he was sent to the Bastille on May 16, 1717, here he recast Oedipe, began the Henriade and decided to change his name.

Ever after his exit from the Bastille in April 1718 he was known as Arouet de Voltaire, or simply Voltaire, though legally he never abandoned his patronymic.
Right one Belle et Bonne.
A solid gain to his happiness was the adoption, or practical adoption, in 1776 of Reine Philiberte de Varicourt, a young girl of noble but poor family, whom Voltaire rescued from the convent, installed in his house as an adopted daughter, and married to the marquis de Villette. Her pet name was "Belle et Bonne", and nobody had more to do with the happiness of the last years of the "patriarch" than she had.

He wrote to Frederick II., that he won't resign for a gloriole and that he should buy him a one, that it wouldn't be that expensive... :giggle:
That's why I gave him here a one :D



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-"It is demonstrable," said he, "that things cannot be otherwise than they are; for as all things have been created for some end, they must necessarily be created for the best end. Observe, for instance, the nose is formed for spectacles; therefore we wear spectacles. The legs are visibly designed for stockings; accordingly we wear stockings. Stones were made to be hewn and to construct castles; therefore my lord has a magnificent castle; for the greatest baron in the province ought to be the best lodged. Swine were intended to be eaten; therefore we eat pork all year round. And they who assert that everything is right, do not express themselves correctly; they should say that everything is best."
-"After the earthquake, which had destroyed three-fourths of the city of Lisbon, the sages of that country could think of no means more effectual to preserve the kingdom from utter ruin than to entertain the people with an auto-da-fe, it having been decided by the University of Coimbra, that the burning of a few people alive by a slow fire, and with great ceremony, is an infallible preventive of earthquakes... The same day there was another earthquake, which made most dreadful havoc."
-"If this is the best of all possible worlds, what are the others?"
-"I am the best man in the world, and yet I have already killed three men, and of these three, two were priests."

Voltaire; Candide
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

'... his real name is not Morival, Talonde Rather, he is the son of a president in Abbeville ...
Talonde but was, along with the Chevalier de La Barre, the son of a colonel of our armies, at the age of fifteen years imprisonment by the Iroquois from Abbeville to the ordinary and highly embarrassing ordeal for chopping off the hand and cutting the tongue, the slow burning at the stake because he had Capuchin not greeted and hummed a song and the supreme court in Paris upheld that judgment, on that French bishops him no more accusations to be without religion, this master of the Court made ​​their murderers to standing as Christians.
I beg your pardon, the Iroquois that I have compared it with that hideous judges ... '

Voltaire to Frederick II

This is Oliver Cromwell (25 April 1599 – 3 September 1658)[1] was an English military and political leader and later Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England, Scotland and Ireland.

I don't say he was good or bad, he was just mentioned in some books and magazines I've read, as a good and as a bad example ( happened quite often, a while, so I came to the idea to draw him, nothing special).

In the box on the left side, in the front of that boy, is his head.
"The head fell of the pole in a strong wind one night, the next morning the guard came to guard it then he found that it had fallen, so he stole it and hid it in his chimney, this is where it remained for six years.
Cromwell's head was found by a soldier who hid it in his chimney. On his deathbed, he bequeathed the relic to his daughter. In 1710 the head appeared in a 'Freak Show', described as 'The Monster's Head'. For many years the head passed through numerous hands, the value increasing with each transaction until a Dr. Wilkinson bought it. The head was offered by the Wilkinson family to his Alma Mater, Sydney Sussex College in 1960. It was given a dignified burial in a secret place in the college grounds." ( Wikipedia;[link])

Found this one today, while cleaning wardrobe! :shrug: Totally forgot it :P Oil, about three years old, or older. Tried painting cubistic, I guess and had a romantic phase!?!:O_o:


"You’ll ask me why I rather choose to have
a weight of carrion flesh than to receive
Three thousand ducats. I’ll not answer that,
But say it is my humour. Is it answered?
What if my house is troubled with a rat, Rat Kiss by Chisuka
And I be pleased to give ten thousand ducats
To have it baned? What, are you answered yet?
Some men there are love not a gaping pig,
Some that are mad if they behold a cat,:iconcrazycatladies:
And others when the bagpipe sings i’th’ nose
Cannot contain their urine; for affection,
Mistress of passion, sways it to the mood

 
Of what it likes or loathes. Now for your answer:
As there is no firm reason to be rendered
Why he cannot abide a gaping pig Animal emote - Pig by MixedMilkChOcOlate
Why he a harmless necessary cat,
Why he a woollen bagpipe, but of force
Must yield to such inevitable shame
As to offend himself being offended,
So can I give no reason, nor I will not,
More than a lodged hate and a certain loathing
I bear Antonio, that I follow thus
A losing suit against him. Are you answered?"

As has been the case in so many other cultures, burial customs were very important to the ancient Greeks. The bodies of fallen kin might be buried or cremated, but in either case it was crucial to place a coin with the body (in the mouth for cases of burial). This was done because Charon, the ferryman who carried the souls of the deceased over the river Styx and into Hades, always required payment for his services.

Those who did not pay were left stranded on the shores of Styx. Many would then come back to haunt their families who treated them so shabbily after death - not an appealing prospect. The same fate awaited those whose bodies were never recovered after death, for example those who drowned at sea.

Those who had the money to pay Charon didn't have it much better, though. They faced eternity existing as pitiful shades, mere shadows of former selves. They were grey, their lives were grey, and it was hardly the sort of existence that anyone would consciously desire. It was, however, where they belonged and proper order was important to the Greeks so this was better than the alternatives.

Wikipedia about Semele: [link]

"Zeus' wife, Hera, a goddess jealous of usurpers, discovered his affair with Semele when she later became pregnant. Appearing as an old crone, Hera befriended Semele, who confided in her that her lover was actually Zeus. Hera pretended not to believe her, and planted seeds of doubt in Semele's mind. Curious, Semele asked Zeus to grant her a boon. Zeus, eager to please his beloved, promised on the River Styx to grant her anything she wanted. She then demanded that Zeus reveal himself in all his glory as proof of his godhood. Though Zeus begged her not to ask this, she persisted and he was forced by his oath to comply. Zeus tried to spare her by showing her the smallest of his bolts and the sparsest thunderstorm clouds he could find. Mortals, however, cannot look upon Zeus without incinerating, and she perished, consumed in lightning-ignited flame."

In the right hand she holds the Sistrum and the holy water in the flagon, with the snake, is in the left hand. Maybe I should call it Serapis, don't know :O_o:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Cybele (Phrygian: Matar Kubileya/Kubeleya "Kubeleyan Mother", perhaps "Mountain Mother"; Lydian Kuvava; Greek: Κυβέλη Kybele, Κυβήβη Kybebe, Κύβελις Kybelis), was an originally Anatolian mother goddess. Little is known of her oldest Anatolian cults, other than her association with mountains, hawks and lions. She may have been Phrygia's State deity; her Phrygian cult was adopted and adapted by Greek colonists of Asia Minor, and spread from there to mainland Greece and its more distant western colonies from around the 6th century BCE.

In Greece, Cybele met with a mixed reception. She was partially assimilated to aspects of the Earth-goddess Gaia, her Minoan equivalent Rhea, and the Corn-Mother goddess Demeter. Some city-states, notably Athens, evoked her as a protector but her most celebrated Greek rites and processions show her as an essentially foreign, exotic mystery-goddess, who arrives in a lion-drawn chariot to the accompaniment of wild music, wine, and a disorderly, ecstatic following. Uniquely in Greek religion, she had a transgender or eunuch mendicant priesthood. Many of her Greek cults included rites to a divine Phrygian castrate shepherd-consort Attis, who was probably a Greek invention. In Greece, Cybele is associated with mountains, town and city walls, fertile nature, and wild animals, especially lions.

In Rome, Cybele was known as Magna Mater ("Great Mother"). The Roman State adopted and developed a particular form of her cult, and claimed her conscription as a key religious component in their success against Carthage during the Punic Wars. Roman mythographers reinvented her as a Trojan goddess, and thus an ancestral goddess of the Roman people by way of the Trojan prince Aeneas. With Rome's eventual hegemony over the Mediterranean world, Romanised forms of Cybele's cults spread throughout the Roman Empire. The meaning and morality of her cults and priesthoods were topics of debate and dispute in Greek and Roman literature, and remain so in modern scholarship.
(Wikipedia of course ;))

...but the price might be higher then you can imagine ;)

Made this one, while reading, Jan Yoors "the Gypsies". He lived a while with gypsies as he was a very young boy, from a belgian family [link]
I wouldn't like to live that way, but I can understand, why people want...
It' s a nice book and inspired me for "you can have it all".

The name, I took from a song again :) Band: Böhse Onkelz, name of the song: "Du kannst alles haben" (You can have it all). I just love that song and even after listening it a million times, it still makes me smile. The singer says to a girl, that she can have everything from him, what she wants, his love, his life etc. :blahblah: and his anger, his hate, his lies... :giggle:
he simply says the truth ;)
One good sentence in this song is "Maybe I'm not the right one for you" or "Let me complicate your life...and I will always be, there for you"

I thought about, to took one of them as the name of this painting/drawing, but I decided just to take the title of the song, the rest is already in it:)

The drawing is about adoring something or someone, without knowing or imagine what could be behind.

And I guess the Dalai Lama said something like that, that it can be a great luck, not receiving, what you want ;)
