Queen of Sheba and King Solomon in art

Queen of Sheba and King Solomon in art. Giovanni Demin, 19th Century


King Solomon, who was given the name Jedidiah at birth, which means Beloved of God, ruled the state of Israel for forty years. Most often, the years of his reign are called 972–932 BC, and this time is marked by relative calm and peace in Israel. No wonder the royal name of this ruler was Solomon (in Hebrew word “shlomo” means peace). He ascended the throne when he was barely twenty years old. But already in the first years of the reign, the young ruler proved to the Israelis his wisdom, organizational skills and strength. He immediately fortified Jerusalem, built a fleet, allocated large funds to promote trade with neighboring states, erected a great temple, and encouraged the development of science and literature.
Solomon was distinguished by his love for women. Some sources claim that he had about 700 wives and more than 300 concubines. The eldest wife of the king of Israel was an Egyptian woman.
Once, rumors of the wisdom and grandeur of the Jewish ruler came to the imperious and strong Queen of Sheba Bilqis, who ruled the country called Happy Arabia. Majestic temples were on its lands, the richest cities flourished, luxurious gardens were green and roads were built, and the people did not cease to glorify their wise queen. Balkida claimed that her country was the richest in the world, and she was the wisest ruler. The queen decided to see Solomon with her own eyes and to see his amazing mind and divine wisdom.

Stars and depth of the Universe

Stars and depth of the Universe

Stars and depth of the Universe

When on a clear night you look at the sky from an open place outside the city, it seems to you that it is strewn with countless stars. It is as if someone had scattered a great many diamonds on dark velvet – the stars sparkle and shimmer with colorful lights.
The impression of the countless stars visible to the naked eye is erroneous. It will disappear if you remember the main stars of the constellations. Even on the clearest moonless night outside the city, where city light does not interfere, only about 3,000 stars are visible in the sky to the naked eye.
The number of stars seems exaggerated, while we still do not understand the pattern of constellations. The impression of countless stars is enhanced by their flickering – the same stars seem to be brighter or weaker due to the fact that air streams of different densities flow between them and us. It was agreed to call the brightest stars First Magnitude stars, and the weakest of those visible with the naked eye – 6th magnitude. 8th and 9th magnitude are visible through binoculars, and even weaker ones through the telescope.

Baikal in the works of Sergey Belov. Olkhon Island


Lake Baikal is not only one of the most beautiful places on Earth, but also one of the most mysterious. Many legends and traditions are associated with various sections of the sacred lake. The real testimonies of people who became witnesses of inexplicable phenomena on Lake Baikal are very numerous.
One of the most mysterious places is the Shamanka rock on Cape Burhan, consisting of white marble, granite and quartz. An ancient Buryat legend about the leader of the Tengrii, the people of celestials, Khan Guga Babai, is associated with the cave, which is inside the rock. According to legend, having descended to the earth, Khan Guga Babai married the most beautiful girl from the human tribe and settled with her in his palace, located in a cave of the Shamanka rock. From the union of the leader of the celestials and the earthly woman, the clan of the Great Shamans appeared, who spread the sacred knowledge of the Tengrii around the world …

People love pigeons. Therefore, it is not surprising that this affectionate, trusting bird has a prominent place in painting, drawing, sculpture and decorative and applied art.
And no matter what role the artist assigned to the Dove, whatever idea this bird expresses in his work, it invariably causes us a warm sympathy and a kind smile.
Since ancient times, people considered the Dove – a traditional symbol of peace, hope, faith and prosperity. And there is a lot of evidence. Firstly, it became a symbol of the World Congress of Peace Supporters in 1949, and secondly there are a lot of sculptural monuments dedicated to these birds, calling for peace in the world.
The dove of peace is an expression that gained great popularity after the end of World War II in connection with the activities of the World Congress of Peace Supporters in 1949. The emblem for this congress was painted by the Spanish artist Pablo Picasso. On the emblem a white dove carrying an olive branch in its beak was painted. In 1950, Picasso was elected to the World Peace Council, was awarded the International Peace Prize, and twice the International Lenin Prize “For the strengthening of peace and friendship between peoples.” There is also a tradition of releasing white Doves as a symbol of peaceful intentions.

Daniel Danger – draw the horrors

Daniel Danger – draw the horrors


Habitat of children’s nightmares
Daniel Danger began to draw quite early, but his work immediately became popular. Now he is a successful owner of a large design studio Tiny Media Empire, which is located in Boston (Massachusetts, USA). And dozens of covers for discs of famous and not very rock bands and a huge number of horror movie posters have already come out of his studio.
It’s very rare when not a pseudonym, but the real name of the artist is fully consistent with the direction that he chose in painting.
Pictures of Daniel are wonderful illustrations for any kind of horror stories, whether it’s a horror movie or the creation of Stephen King. On his canvases there is no sea of blood, flaming skulls or rotting human remains. But it is felt that danger and fear lurk us inside these gloomy half-destroyed houses, in barns covered with snow or sand, on the streets of creepy cities. There are strange vague figures, sometimes simply silhouettes that live in rooms covered with spider webs wandering thoughtfully among dust-covered lousy furniture.
