Dancing girls of Ajanta

Dancing girls of Ajanta - cave painting

Around 1918-1919, Mukul Dey made a trip to the Ajanta and Bagh caves to recreate the frescoes there. Dey’s circumstances were modest and the trip was funded by commissioned portraits. The work was eventually published in book form in 1925. “Dancing Girls” is possibly part of this or at least inspired by Dey’s trip given the costumes and hairstyles.

The paintings and artwork of the Buddhist caves of Ajanta remain a unique and colourful record of an ancient life that was. The people seem to emerge from rock fully formed and vibrant and this art style is one that has not been given enough credit as a major school in the history of the representation of the human figure in art. —S

Helium – Visions by Mark Zug

Helium by Mark Zug

Helium
by Mark Zug

The first of the Noble Gases, Helium is named from the Greek root helios, meaning sun. As a gas it is buoyant in air, entirely benign in the body, and does not freeze at any temperature we can devise. Her emission spectrum is a rosy vermillion. Helium is useful for scientific experiments into superconductivity — the absence of electrical friction — and as a liquid it is a superfluid which will climb the walls of its container to escape. She is effortlessly powerful, radiant, benevolent, and not a little “above it all.” The opposite number to Radon.
