날이 너무 좋은 6일차.
벌써 절반이 지났네.😥

Today, in between meetings, I’m admiring the #4thPlinth on Trafalgar Square🦁 currently showcasing the snappily titled #TheInvisbleEnemyShouldNot Exist by #MichaelRakowitz.

It is a statue of a #Lamassu, an Assyrian deity in the shape of a winged bull🐂🦋. This only represents part of the artists project to recreate over 7,000 looted objects from #Nineveh near modern day Mosul, Iraq 🇮🇶. It is crafted from date syrup cans 🥫which represent a once renowned industry decimated by war ⚔️ and strife in the country.

The 4 plinth was originally intended for a statue of #WilliamIV 👑but there were insufficient funds 💰and it lay bare for 1️⃣5️⃣0️⃣ years. From 2005 onwards it has hosted a series of rolling commissions including artists🎨 👩‍🎨 such as #MarcQuinn, #AntonyGormley and #ElgreenAndDragset.

수백년이 지나도 명작은 명작
사진을 찍을 수 있어서 다행이었지만
눈으로 본 감동으로 오래 간직할 수 있었음 좋겠다

We’ve all got both
light and dark inside us.
What matters is
the part we choose
to act on;
that’s who we really are.

Titian (Tiziano), Portrait of a Lady (‘La Schiavone’), 1510-12

The sitter looks straight at the viewer with engaging frankness. This lack of artifice is matched by her plain features. The profile relief on the parapet- inspired by ancient cameos- seems to represent the same woman. The raised part of the parapet is a revision; the draper originally painted there now shows through.

Titian (Tiziano), Bacchus and Ariadne, 1520-3

Bacchus, god of wine, leaps from his chariot towards Ariadne. The Greek princess has been searching the horizon for Theseus, the lover who abandoned her. Bacchus offers himself as her husband, and the sky as a wedding gift. He would make her a place among the consellations (shown top left). The painting combines 2 celebrated passages from the classical poets Catullus and Philostratus.

Titian (Tiziano), An Allegory of Prudence, 1550-65

The 3 faces represent the past, present and future. A triple-headed wolf, lion and dog sometimes stood for Prudence in late 16th century imagery and literature. The Latin inscription, ‘(learning) from yesterday, today acts prudently, lest by his action he spoil tomorrow’ explains the meaning of this visual riddle.
