Baphomet - Equilibrium of Opposites Featured Print

Baphomet - Equilibrium of Opposites

Baphomet - associated with a "Sabbatic Goat" image drawn by Eliphas Levi (on which this illustration is based), containing binary elements representing the "sum total of the universe" (e.g. male and female, good and evil, etc.). On one hand, Levi's intention was to symbolise his concept of "the equilibrium of the opposites" that was essential to his magnetistic notion of the Astral Light

Balthasar Nebot - Gardens of Hartwell House, Aylesbury - 2/8 Featured Print

Balthasar Nebot - Gardens of Hartwell House, Aylesbury - 2/8

One of a series of eight paintings by Balthasar Nebot (active 1729-1765) showing the spectacular garden landscape of Hartwell House, just outside Aylesbury, in 1738. Topiary has been used to great effect in order to create dramatic architectural forms. The central avenue leads up to the column with the William III statue, the right-hand one reveals a bust of John Hampden, and the left-hand leads to the menagerie. To the left can be seen part of the front of the house with an angel above the window. The formal green architecture of topiary hedges, with classical stone temples and statues of gods and goddesses, was balanced by informal views towards the town. Sir Thomas Lee (1687-1749) of Hartwell commissioned the painting from Nebot, a little-known Spanish painter, based in Covent Garden. They provide a unique record of a country estate and garden landscape at this time. The people of Hartwell family, visitors, household and estate staff and, especially the gardeners are also portrayed in great detail.

Samarkand, Uzbekistan - Madrasa in The Registan Featured Print

Samarkand, Uzbekistan - Madrasa in The Registan

The Registan - the heart of the ancient city of Samarkand of the Timurid dynasty, now in Uzbekistan. The Registan was a public square, where people gathered to hear royal proclamations, heralded by blasts on enormous copper pipes called dzharchis - and a place of public executions. It is framed by three madrasahs (Islamic schools) of distinctive Islamic architecture. Pictured here is an example of the fantastic geometric tiling on one of the Madrasah walls. Date: 1988
