    The stylized flames threw me off for a bit.

    And a prototype electric 2-seater automobile orbiting the sun somewhere between Earth and Mars conjures images straight out of Hollywood. Consumerism triumphant over military or science, as it were. Seems almost as profound a statement about humanity as the Voyager golden record.

    Or maybe because he can. Immortality of a sort.

    Painting #2! Any guesses?

    Gotterdammerung again; Prologue, the 3 Norns (daughters of Erda) weave the rope of destiny.

    Are these original art?

    They are all original acrylic on canvas, painted by Cal Pedranti in the 1980s and 90s. In 2001, he died and willed them to the Wagner Society of Northern California, from whom I purchased them yesterday. The 7 I have are too many for my studio; I will be shipping three to the Landhaus in LA.

    Norns — yes — with a rather thin looking rope before it has broken.

    Third! And perhaps a little harder? Visible are my slipper and the very very edge of my trusty Mjolnir 2. 53888584316__ECFB2FAB-E51E-4600-9652-01ABD58EED3D.jpg

    Tougher indeed. "Weia! Waga! Woge, du Welle" The Rheingold at the bottom of the river?
  8. bosiemoncrieff
    Alas not the Rheintochter! But the correct opera.

    Interesting piece by a writer with whom I often disagree.

    Bridge to Valhalla?
    Stacking the gold in front of Freia?

    (That Lebrecht piece is an interesting read)

    It is indeed from the fourth scene of the opera, but I'm afraid neither of those episodes...to call it vaginal might be to give it away.
  12. FLTWS
    Hmmm, scene 4 has just about every character in the whole opera including the Rheinmaidens and Erda except for Mime.

    The Rheinmaidens lament? Erda's warning?
    I'm stumped!
    Let's change categories Alex, LOL.

    I believe I've found a prototype for a revolutionary Schiit product. I found it at the last place one would expect to find cutting-edge audio, in the rehearsal hall for our recent run of L'Elisir d'Amore. (Ying Fang was stupendous!)
    This solves several problems Schiit has been dealing with - independence from grid AC with or without "galvanic isolation", minimal electronics and no ICs or lead-free solder concerns, portability, and an elegant solution to "The Gadget" as the mechanism slows down to the "sweet spot"...

    It is Erda, yes, the earth goddess, emerging from what I take to be an extravagantly feminine crack in the earth. New category! Non-ring. I think this is my biggest painting. 72" high and maybe 52" wide.
