    *Marble Veils"

    Marble Veils.
    F A N T A S T I C !

    To have the skill level to carve it in marble. This sculpture below, "The veiled virgin" is most impressive, notice the effect of transparency, from the Italian artist Giovanni Strazza of the nineteenth century. The sculptor was only 23 years old when he made it.

    Think of the epic difficulty of modeling a veil on a face of a material that is among the toughest on the planet, marble (mineral hardness 3 – Friedrich Mohs scale). Another problem is that marble has nothing added. It is a sculpture made by subtracting 100%. Why say that to sculpt a figure, you take the block and " simply take everything that is not his figure ."

    Think of the level of difficulty to carve without breaking it: This is a monument to the father of Prince Raimondo Sangro Antonio (1685-1757) The Italian name of the monument Disinganno is often translated as " disappointment ", but not in the conventional sense of it, and Church Slavonic – "Freedom of the spell. "Freedom of the spell " (after 1757 ) of Franschesko Kvirolo and is the most famous of his works, the ability to make this netting. All made of a single piece of marble and pumice, Kvirolo was the only Neapolitan master who accepted the challenge . Other great sculptors wouldn’t, believing that the network would break into pieces. Amazing master sculptors for centuries the art of precise cutting of the stone. How about that texture of skin, Lorenzo Bernini , which depicts the abduction of Persephone ?

    Look at the finger pressure on the skin.

    And to think that the sculptor was only 23 years old
    when he made it in 1621. Look at the detail.

    The Paint Job

    Painting the Church

    There was a Scottish painter named Smokey MacGregor who was very
    Interested in making a penny where he could, so he often thinned down

    His paint to make it go a wee bit further.

    As it happened, he got away with this for some time, but eventually

    The local church decided to do a big restoration job on the outside

    Of one of their biggest buildings.

    Smokey put in a bid and, because his price was so low, he got the job.

    So he set about erecting the scaffolding and setting up the planks,

    And buying the paint and yes, I am sorry to say, thinning it down with


    Well, Smokey was up on the scaffolding, painting away, the job nearly

    Completed, when suddenly there was a horrendous clap of thunder,

    The sky opened and the rain poured down washing the thinned paint

    From all over the church and knocking Smokey clear off the scaffold to

    Land on the lawn among the gravestones, surrounded by telltale puddles

    Of the thinned and useless paint.

    Smokey was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from the Almighty,

    So he got down on his knees and cried:

    "Oh God, Oh God, forgive me; what should I do?"

    And from the thunder, a mighty voicespoke.

    (you’re going to love this)

    "Repaint! Repaint! And thin no more!"

    "Blessed are the cracked, for they are the ones who let in the light."

    Just in case your walking and running isn’t working for you.

    OH yeah! Un-hunh.

    When you look at these, think about your knees
    and how climbing these stairs would affect them.

    Wurzburg , Germany

    Pailon del Diablo, Equador

    Chand Baori fountain in India. These steps lead to a huge fountain built in the tenth century to collect rain. There are 3,500 steps going down to a depth of 30 meters.

    Elbsandsteingebirge stairs in Schsische Schweiz, Germany. Dating from the thirteenth century, eroded by wind and water, but being used daily by tourists. 487 steps.

    Crack of Guatape, Antioquia, Colombia, a genuine monolith with a height of 220 meters. Cement stairs built directly on the rock, filling the crack where the sides support the structure. 702 steps.

    Haiku scale, Oahu, Hawaii, 3922 steps, on a hill of 850 meters; created to facilitate the installation of antennas in 1942. Made of wood, it was modernized in 1950 with metal, but closed to the public in 1987.

    The Inca road, Peru. Ancient trade route that connects Cuzco to Machu Picchu town. Miles and miles of stairs in some very unsafe places, such as this famous floating stage.

    Wayna Pichu at Machu Pichu, Peru. Steps cut into the rock which crowns an ascent of 360 feet above the main city of Machu Pichu. Only 400 tourists allowed daily.

    Cross Roadladder in Bermeo, Basque Country, Spain. Leads to a small church dating from the tenth century. It seems to be of Templar origin. To reach the hermitage of San Juan de Gaztelugatze, you must climb 231 steps. There are gaps between steps identified to be the footprints of St. John and assigned curative powers. Hikers often sit on them for body healing or to cure headaches.

    Scale worm in Taihang Mountains, between Shanxi and Henan provinces in China, approximately 100 meters. Recently installed to attract thousands of tourists to the Taihang mountains. Visitors are asked to sign a form assuring that they have no heart or lung problems before climbing.

    Subject: Fw: Fwd: HAIL MARY


    Today begins the 90th Anniversary of
    the apparition of the Virgin of Fatima.
    When you receive this e-mail, say a Hail Mary and
    ask for a special favor.

    "Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee.
    Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the
    fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
    Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now
    and at the hour of our death,

    Amen. (your request)

    Please do not break the Novena. Send it to 12
    people you think deserve justice, peace, love,
    health, prosperity and truth.

    When you are down to nothing, God is up to
    something. This has been traveling since 5/13/07.

    When God takes something from your grasp, He’s
    not punishing you, but merely opening your
    hands to receive something better. Concentrate on
    this sentence: "The will of God will never
    take you where the Grace of God will not protect

    you." Something good will happen to you today,
    something that you have been waiting to hear.

    Please do not break. Just 27 Words.
