Bugün sizlere mimari bir yapı elemanı olan kadın heykeli şeklindeki sütunlardan, ‘karyatid’lerden söz etmek istiyorum.
Karyatidlerin yapımı tarihsel bir olaya dayanır, hikâyesi şöyledir;
Karya, Pers-Yunan savaşında Perslerin tarafını tutmuştur. Savaştan zaferle çıkan Yunanlılar, Karya halkına savaş açarlar. Kenti ele geçirip erkeklerini öldürerek devleti ıssızlığa terk ederler.
Kadınları da köle olarak kaçırırlar ve uzun giysilerini ve diğer evlilik simgelerini çıkarmalarına izin vermeyerek zafer alayında onları zorla teşhir ederler. Bu kadınlar şehrin utancının ağırlığı altında ezilerek sonsuza dek köleliği temsil edecekler ve devletlerinin kefaretini ödemiş olacaklardır.
Karya halkının günah ve cezalarının ardılları tarafından da bilinerek sürdürülmesi için, kamu yapılarına kadınların bu yükün altında ezildiklerini gösterecek biçimde heykellerini yerleştirirler.
En ünlü ve en çok kopya edilen karyatidler Erekhtheion Tapınağı’nda (Acropolis-Atina) (MÖ. 420-406 ) yer almaktadır. Bu karyatidlerin orijinalleri şu an The British Museum’da sergilenmektir.
Tabiki her zamanki gibi yorumlarınızı bekliyorum. Çok sevgilerimle. Sanatla, sevgiyle kalınız.❤️❤️ #statue#heykel#karyatid#caryatid#sanattarihi#arthistory#acropolis#ancient#ancienthistory#ancientgreek#insta#arte#yunanistan#athens_city#history#columns#hellenistic#hellenisticperiod#acropolismuseum#temple#tapınak#atina#archeology#archeologia
If we go through the various stories of Lord Shiva, in each step we will find Nandi's actions that prove his pure fondness and loyalty towards Lord Shiva, Goddess Parvati and other family members. Let’s look at two of those great stories.
Sati’s death made Lord Shiva totally uninvolved and far from the worldly things. He decided to take ‘Samadhi’, a stage of deep meditation forever and thus ordered Nandi to leave him and go back to his family. Lord Shiva tried a lot of ways including punishing Nandi with pain in order to make him leave but all failed. Nandi took the form of a white bull made of ice and waited outside the cave where Shiva went to the Samadhi stage. He again came out of that ice statue only when Sati took birth again as Goddess Parvati and made Lord Shiva come out from the Samadhi. Lord Shiva accepted Nandi happily.
When there was the episode of ‘SamudraManthan’, where the Devas and Ashuras were searching for the ‘Amrit', pot of nectar, that fell down in the ocean, a large amount of poison came out which could kill all living beings in the world. Lord Shiva was the only one who took the risk to swallow the whole poison to save the world. Being the most loyal to Lord Shiva, it was impossible for Nandi to see his master swallowing poison in front of him. He disobeyed Lord Shiva’s order to stay away from the poison and started swallowing it with. Though Goddess Parvati was protecting Lord Shiva by blocking the poison in his throat and not letting it go down to the entire body, after seeing the devotion of Nandi she provided her protection to him also. Nandi has taught us that affection, dedication, clarity and truth can defeat any negativity on our way to happiness, to ultimate knowledge, to prosperity, and to God. According to the Hindu Scriptures, Nandi is also known as the chief guru of eighteen great masters including Patanjali and Thirumular. There is a stone image of a seated Nandi, facing the main shrine in front of every Shiva temple. There are also a number of temples dedicated only to Nandi. Nandi represents the soul or ‘Atma’ which is always focused on the supreme or the ‘Parmatma’. 💀👁💀 Om Namo Nandishwaraya Namah ~ Shivaya Namah Om
I remember taking this picture was at the end of a long day of walking up and down Buenos Aires neighbourhoods and my feet were killing me. But I remember turning my head and noticing how the late afternoon light was catching this statue of Rodin’s Thinker and suddenly I forgot all about my sore feet. 😍☀️🇦🇷
