MINHA TERRA Minha terra Tem belezas Que só ela tem Beleza singular Simples e inspiradora. Terra minha E dos meus parentes Terra de barro escuro E palmeiras altaneiras Protegendo o Velho Guarani Ancião Coroado pelas nuvens Da minha terra Terra minha, terras de ninguém Paisagem já impregnada No cerne da minha mente Desde antes do Big Bang.

#LeonardoDaVinci is a saint of #Antinous. The #SalvatorMundi needed a little cleanup before delivery to the new owner. Experts used that new emulsion everyone has been talking about. The new owner will love the results, don't you think? #Leonardo #art #arthistory

🍇Morphed collage of a marble statue of Antinous as Dionysus-Osiris, with Persian artist @khashayarradafshar. This syncretic sculpture was commissioned by Roman Emperor Hadrian, who deified Antinous posthumously. Antinous was the emperor's favorite, and lover. . Introduced to the Emperor in Bithynia (Bolu, Turkey) The boy was sent to Italy for his education. A few years later, he became the emperor's favourite. Hadrian was 48 years old, Antinous, 13. . In October 130, from the emperor's boat, Antinous fell into the Nile, and died in mysterious circumstances. Accidental drowning? Human sacrifice? Hadrian died 8 years later, after much dedication to the young man's memory: . Antinopolis, a centre for the worship of Osiris-Antinous, founded near Antinous' place of death. All previous buildings were razed and replaced, except for the Temple of Ramses II. . Altars and temples to Antinous erected in Hermopolis, Alexandria, Oxyrhynchus, Tebytnis, Lykopolis, Tarsos, Philadelphia, Lanuvium, and Luxor. . Over 2000 sculptures of Antinous produced, of which at least 115 survive: 44 in Italy, (22 at Hadrian's Villa), 12 in Greece and Asia Minor, and 6 in Egypt. . Coins depicting him issued by 31 cities in Greece and Asia Minor. . Commemorative games established in both Antinopolis and Athens. . The Antinoeia festival, held every October. . The Antinous obelisk in Rome contains an inscription strongly suggesting that Antinous' body was burried at Hadrian's country estate, the Villa Adriana, at Tibur in Italy. . The constellation Antinous remained in starcharts for centuries, until 1930, when it was merged with the Aquila constellation. In classical Greek mythology, Aquila was the eagle that was sent by Zeus to carry the shepherd boy Ganymede, whom he desired, to Mount Olympus; the constellation of Aquarius is sometimes identified with Ganymede, pouring wine for his master.🍇 .
