B111 - WHEN A BALINESE EMBARKS WITH BENU THE SACRED BIRD - 2009 / Painting Acrylic / 127 x 85 cm - 50 x 33,4 inches / 6850 USD

Description: B111 - WHEN A BALINESE EMBARKS WITH BENU THE SACRED BIRD - 2009 BABYLONIAN / Acrylic on canvas, bent frame, 127 x 85 cm - 50 x 33,4 inches / ( Text translated by Google) / Phoenician Period under Egyptian occupation from 1800 to 1100 BC. Unlikely encounter abruptly exit the imagination of the artist, whereas Egypt has been planned for several thousand years to take the role of this usurper. In fact, the mural still exists in the depths of a pyramid, and evil be to him who evil thinks of any felony. Image paradoxically iconoclast, but embalmed a dream of your artist. Perhaps you've instantly recognized our vaguely puppet's Balinese? Anyway, it is Benu which is the main character! Not for what he did but for what it is, namely, the sacred bird of Egypt: Benu the first living being in Egyptian mythology, he emerged from the light and sat on the darkness, bringing in its wake heat and creative energy. He said that his first cry was never heard on earth! The Benu bird was particularly venerated at Heliopolis, where he was considered one of the incarnations of RÔ, the sun god. Originally the Egyptians represented him in the form of a yellow wagtail or a heron Nile planted with two feathers on the head as spearheads, in another life. May this picture help? The most common form represented in the tombs and retained by me. Benu was often engraved on precious stones and buried with the dead to help revive Benu: a few words about our bird? It was primarily associated with Atum and RÔ at a time. It was only later that he became the incarnation of Osiris when he was in the darkness of Douat during his journey of resurrection as the sun god, Benu regenerates itself! To convince you this is his incantation from the Book of the Dead: "I am Solar copulating with the phallus itself, I am the Benu bird in Annu (Heliopolis =). I am the keeper of the Book of beings and being. Who then is it? Osiris, his body is lying, or his injury. In other words Eternity (double): the light of day and the continuing to be the night !".

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 ?
