A collection of images that I like enough to let the internet know that I like them. I am particularly fond of the occult, art nouveau, mythology, the female form, and heavy and experimental music. Sometimes the noise/drone I create makes it's way here. If you want to see what I myself create, check out my website at: www.howlingfalcon.wordpress.com


Valente Celle Tomb, 1893, The Staglieno Cemetery, Genoa - Italy

Sculptor: Giulio Monteverde (Bistagno, Alessandria, 1837 - Roma 1917)

The funeral monument called “Eternal Drama” represents a real Dans macabre, the futile attempt of life to escape the inevitable embrace of death. The sculptor Giulio Monteverde underlines, in this sculpture, the contrast between the sensuality of the beautiful young woman who personifies Life (caught in the moment in which , wearied by the vain struggle, she is about to surrender herself to the terrible spectre who has chosen her as his prey) and the rigid impassiveness of Death which seizes her. http://grabschonheiten.diary.ru/p81440998.htm?oam

Swayambhu Ziro’s Shivlingam - the largest Shivling in the world
Kardo, Ziro Forest, Arunachal Pradesh

A miraculous discovery of Shiva Lingam of Sidheswar Nath Temple took place in the 1-forthnight of July’2004. According to the Hindu Calendar, it is the month of Shravana, a sacred month to worship Lord Shiva. A Nepalese, Mr Prem Subha was cutting tree standing at the right of the Lingam. The tree was expected to fell just over it, fortunately, nothing harmed it and the tree landed a few meters away from the Lingam. He felt surprised over it and looked at the rising stone. Suddenly something struck in his mind and realized that it was not a mere stone. It stood clearly visible which appealed him to believe it as Shiva Lingam. Being fully inspired with his beliefs, he started telling the people all about what he had seen and what had happened.

The mystery of this Lingam in Ziro has obviously mentioned in the SHIVAPURANA in 17th chapter of the ninth section (Nava Khand ke Satrahwa Adhyaya) edition 1893 that the tallest Shiva Lingam will appear at a place which will be called Lingalaya and the later the whole will be known as Arunachal.

Location : It is about 4 Km away from Hapoli township. The height of Shiva Lingam is 25ft. and 22 ft width at Kardo. Million of devotees who offer their prayers, worship and faith of Lord Shiva in the remote Himalayan region of Tribal beliefs and traditions.
