THE ART NOUVEAU PALACE DANCE MYTH
A wonder filled and rare selection of Prints collected by Richard Moore.
Predominantly these prints illustrate the ART NOUVEAU PALACE DANCE MYTH.
The creation myth behind these sacred dances
……….”beyond space and time in the
astral worlds of the Gods, rituals were performed over celestial jewels.
These blessed gems fell from the astral plain, into the portals of heaven.
The cosmic descent polarized the transformation of gemstones into EXOTIC NYMPHS ,
Who then danced around the ocean of paradise three times”
Theses prints were originally created by “THE ORIENTALISTS”…..who were classically trained European and British artists of the 18th 19th centuries. They travelled extensively in this pre photographic era through the Middle East India and S.E.Asia documenting daily scenes of the people, architecture, and landscape. Always in search of new and exotic locations.
An excellent example of the artistic power to document and preserve history.
