The Beastmaster connection. A magical candle holder
Have you ever felt the Power? Have you ever felt the Magic? Have you ever felt the Force???
I did, and I will tell you how. Pay attention, please.
When I was a kid I loved to dream awaken with movies. One of my cult movies was The Beastmaster, a sword sorcery one. I watched the film again a year ago and... well, maybe it's not a masterpiece like Conan, the Barbarian, but still has the same charming and the three things that blew my mind when I was a kid:
1- The black tiger (actually a dyed one; it couldn't, obviously, have been done that way these days, thanks God, and animal protectors ;)
Tiger, tiger, burning (not so) bright... Poor one :(
2- Tanya Roberts, because of the obvious reasons you can imagine ;)
Tanya, Tanya, burning bright, in the forests of the night...
3- AND the sword, the sword, the sword...
-Oh, Dar, what a BIG sword you have...
-Thank you Kiri!!!
So, give a ten years old kid of the eighties a muscled hero, wild animals, some naïf erotism, fantasy and a big sword and you have him with his wide opened eyes for two hours ;)
Coming back to the sword... I used to fall asleep dreaming of it. I wanted a sword like that! Actually, I wanted THAT sword!!! But how???
So I started to imagine different ways to get my own one. And I came to this crazy idea:
My Evil Plan
I would have (in the future) a powerful computer, connected with a magical electric black box. I would be a skilled guy with computers and that way I would give the correct order to the machine for building the sword into the black box during the whole night.
End of the plan, ok?
I’m talking about the thoughts of a ten years old kid in 1983, right? Much before 3d printing stuff were a so fashionable things. I think I deserved a Nobel Prize, by that time. For real!!!!
It takes me to my beloved Randy Pausch and his famous last lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams
Thank you, Randy. We LOVE you
A beloved friend of mine gave me the book and I have recommended it to my beloved ones, as well. It’s moving, truthful and inspirational. If you still have the kid inside you, if you still have dreams, you should read this. It’s also a perfect book about Life and Death.
One of the first things he tells in the book is about the pictures he made in his room walls. He rendered his wishes and dreams there… and he fulfilled them all later.
So dreams have Real power, and so has Art.If you focus on something, you attract that something. And art is a powerful bridge between dimensions. A gate to the unknown world. Maybe the most primitive gate. When you are drawing, creating, focused, you are calling mysterious forces. To me, this is a fact. We can tell it Juan Antonio’s facts ;))))
Where are your childhood dreams? Have you ever take a single minute to study the connection between the man, or the woman you are now, and the fantasies you had when you were a kid? Were you focus, then? Are you, now? Did you ever drew or wrote down then? Think about it…
From 2D to 3D
Maybe you remember this work of mine:
V. A Bubble (Made with Love series)
As you can see, I designed a tile pattern for the background fully inspired in Escher's wonderful works. I have always loved the idea of complementary things. Yin Yang stuff, you know.
I was thinking, later, about the idea of bringing them (both the bird and the fish) into the 3D world, as a warm and intimate porcelain candle holder. And here you have!
The Sorcerer's Corner
So the next step should be sending it to the magical black box and printing it in 3D ;) Which is possible, as you know...
To finish my today's entry, let me wish you something, right? With this image:
Magic candle holder for Lovers
I think the image tells everything ;) So my wish for you only can be this: LOVE
Health and Love for everyone!!!
