Painted ceiling


Here is another mural of sorts from the Humboldt Box. Both Humboldt Brothers loved to travel and learn about other peoples and their culture. This painting is meant to show the influences of their non-European travels on their thinking. 

It's Monday again! After a few days of blue skies last week, we had a gray and cold weekend. It didn't stop me from enjoying Hertha's win at the Olympiastadion and a round of golf, but I do hope spring is coming soon. I'm linking this post with Monday Mural.

    1. Lucky you! It was only around 5c and gray this weekend. Today it's getting up to 8c. I'm dreaming of the teens or twenties!

  2. Very Buddhist. Many of the figures look like apsara, Buddhist angels.

  4. I agree with Bob very crowded with ladylike Buddha's but not in an unpleasant way.

  5. I can see many influences here Hal, brought together perfectly by using black and white, although a tiny touch of red would have been good :)

  12. That's a fine mural. Has a strong Japanese flavor, I think.

  13. You got a good angle on that ceiling. It looks like a wall mural.
    I hope your weather improves soon. Spring is so on and off, isn't it?!

  15. I'm not up on my Buddhist iconography but I do know a little about the Humboldts. There's a river in Nevada named after Alexander and street in Oaxaca named for him as well. What an adventurer. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
