M90 - HORSE MINOAN STUNG - 2008 / Painting Acrylic / 95 x 120 cm.- 37,4 x 47,2 inches / 7260 USD

Description: MINOAN / (Text translated by Google) / This table is filled with symbols from Minoan seals without power for much, they decide to sacred connotations of personal seals to identify the owner of a mark on a door or a good seal. The scorpion, as already mentioned in a previous picture was likely to frighten those who would break the seal. The horse remaining on the island of Crete at this early period, not surprising, since the oldest known image of the world comes a rider on horseback Site Cretan Prinia, it dates from the second millennium BC In addition The myth of horses from the Mediterranean sea is ... Poseidon and the horses of Ishmael, Abraham's son reminds us. The horse in our table has 3400 years, it has been discovered on a sardonyx lento´de 15 mm in diameter at Knossos. The skinned bird and two fishes (the middle one Marine could be an insect?) Are quite distinctive style oversimplified Minoan sculptors. Remember, these fees are sometimes measured in millimeters or rarely less than two centimeters in the rare-ring seals of royal gold? At the extreme top left representation of a leaf after a plant of the island? On the same side below, a lyrebird very reworked by the artist, lower middle: two possible interpretations: the top of a cactus or a lion's head without eyes? A Minoan assists idly on the scene, why the arms folded? Because many statues of the Cyclades Aegean show women naked, standing, arms crossed! Finally, the dog takes the Minoan monogram Philhelm in his left leg. Lento´de: lens-shaped, the Egyptians adopt much later form called "scarab" approximately around 2000 BC Sard: brown variety, sometimes a red chalcedony: that is to say, a translucent crystalline silica is widely used in jewelry in ancient times for jewelry and stamps. If it is an orange-red carnelian. Brown, a sardonyx. Green, a chrysoprase, onyx black =. Cyclades in the southern Aegean Sea, about 2,200 islands, islets and islets, rocks, so called because they form a circle. The Cycladic civilization, famous for its marble idols, is even older than the Minoan civilization of Crete.

In actual fact, I want to tell you without misrepresentation, the whole story of Philhelm, which begins in Alsace (It was still a Germanic country and will become French only in 1678!) in the castle of Lichtenberg, on April 23rd 1616, when the seven-year-old Balthasar Helmlinger, loses the Monogram of his eponymy descendant. This ordinary but nevertheless very serious incident in the distant past will set in motion the artistic calling of one of his descendants, ten generations later! This contemporary painter, born in Strasbourg in 1943, has only exhibited his work twice in his life (1999 and 2001) and only at the "International Biennial Event of Contemporary Art of Florence" which awarded him in 1999 the Prize of the City of Florence. So that the ordinary people be completely disorientated, so that it will let the story of the past enter him torpidly, by going back the furthermost possible or else it will never pierce the heart of his paintings, to seek there the secret causes of things.
Philhelm declines the colors in a correspondence with the images and original writings to a small history of the past, in wich his monogram was always present as an archetype. This revival for a few years, he has tried to reveal it because the Gods came one day to its meeting ! They deigned to present him their messengers like a hero accompanied with their sphinges : Let them forgive him, if he dares to quote them in the enjoyement of his heart, even if he put no bad shame to ask them for grace. If he tries to make reappear by its legends, some bits of a lost knowledge, and really immortal and sacred, he owes it only with work of fort many archaeologists and historians. He makes no vanity of his work. If he had his whole life, believe not produce anything good and beautiful, he feels no less real joy and deep taste that he recognizes and admires beautiful and great at others, had they been Etruscan, Cretan, Assyrian or Sumerian ?
