Dreamland with Chevalier Ernest Thorn Featured Print

Dreamland with Chevalier Ernest Thorn

Dreamland with Chevalier Ernest Thorn (22nd September 1853 -21st May 1928) was a touring magician and inventor from Austria. After first being an assistant to Bellachini, he made extensive tours of Europe, America and the Orient. He was assisted by his wife Julia. His act An Hour in Dreamland introduced a number of his creations. Among his innovations was the cremation illusion in which his assistant vanished in flames as she stood within an asbestos curtain. Another was "Noah's Ark" in which a model of the Ark, first shown empty, produced various animals, climaxing in the production of Noah's wife. The image shows a black and white photograph of Thorn asleep in a chair surrounded by an illustrative dreamlike scene. This features a woman floating behind him with a flowing dress and a white dove flying beside her. Date: 1800s, 1900s

Bottlenose dolphins - dancing and blowing air underwater Featured Print

Bottlenose dolphins - dancing and blowing air underwater

Bottlenose dolphins - dancing and blowing air underwater (Tursiops truncatus). Complex play / creative behaviour: dolphins often play with the bubbles or rings of air they create, both visually and by using sonar. They appear to enjoy biting the vortex rings, so that these burst into many separate normal bubbles, which then rise more rapidly to the surface. They also play games, diving through the bubble rings for fun!This group of dolphins are captive in Oltremare a theme park dedicated to the Adriatic sea located in Riccione, Italy, and are used in shows, educational programs (specially for school children) and research (we are studying mainly sound and echo location). From left to right:- Achille, 4 year old captive born; Bonnie, 30 years old mother of Achille; Ulisse, 9 years old captive born; Bravo, 28 years old father of Achille, Silver, Golia, Tabo, Ulisse; Tabo, 13 years old captive born; Candy, 27 years old mother of Tabo & Ulisse; Golia, 13 years old captive born; Micha, 20 year old male (starting a reproductive program this year); Silver, 9 years old captive born
