The ray of light is moving around the inside of dome and originally it stopped on old antique paintings. They were stolen...

excellent Katarina, wonderful effect there, that's the Pantheon dome isn't it?

10 Mar, 2012

 

Yes, Surreylad, it is. It is wonderful place. The oldest monument in the world which survived with roof and has been continuously used.

During the drunken feast, Belshazzar uses the holy golden and silver vessels, from Solomon's Temple, to praise 'the gods of gold and silver, brass, iron, wood, and stone'. Soon afterward, disembodied fingers of a human hand appear and write on the wall of the royal palace the words: Mene, Mene, Tekel u-Pharsin

translates as something like 'you have been weighed in the balances' is that right?

10 Mar, 2012

 

I believe so "Thou art weighed in the balance and art found wanting."

ah the authorised version! sounds much better.
yes i do too michaella ~ i think my mind works better in pictures!!!

Michaella, it could be also Mene, Mene, tekel, peres. Like days of your kingdom are counted, were weighted on scales and found isufficient, your kingdom will be divided and given to Meds and Persians." It depend on what translation of Old Testament you use. I hope you won´t have heavy dreams :)

I wonder, does somebody have sundials in his/her garden? I was thinking about it some times ago, but my money were always redistributed to more practical things. &just this picture reminds me of it.

Sorry katarina I don't have one, I don't get much sun so it wouldn't work so well for me!

11 Mar, 2012
