What about … #5

Paintings are different for each of us, some are doors to a different called world, you could live in them, they make you feel better, give you hope,  they are usually light in colors, some are melancholic, you like them just because they remind you of someone or because you need to change feelings, or just because it’ suits you or because you’re a sentimental person, some focus on beauty such women, children, plants, mountains….  And some of them are dramatic, war, death, poisonous….  Now in our case we’ll take a bit of drama and a bit of melancholy:

Have you heard of a painting called The Scream? Probably yes, it’s hard not to know it.  It’s a little creepy I think, it looks like a skeleton with a big mouth rising from the dead. But yes we may look like this when we’ll resuscitate. No one said we’ll be pretty or handsome!

Take a quick look at this website, there are a few “paintings” which are of interest. I should say that artistically they’re awesome, they look so real and beautiful but they are not painted.

Now there is another one called The Destruction of Tyre from the 18th century, which is a historical town in Lebanon.

Yes it looks apocalyptic if we focus, otherwise it looks like a storm.

Or better, from the same painter The Great Day of His Wrath

Or even The Last Days of Pompeii.

There are so many of them that I don’t have time to fit them all here, but let’s bear in mind that the real scenario is beyond our imagination.

You'll never know what you'll read next. Random lecture is what is all about but one thing is for sure, it's by the same author who wrote The Theory of Fate and Who Went Out of Africa
