Innovative grave character on October 25, 2008 in Antwerp the freelance sculptor of Siegbert Altmiks and the stone master sculptor Stefan King box of food for their landmark-art project awarded for a new culture of mourning ceremony of the 10th International funeral Award (IFA) during a gala event with an initial placement. The international funeral award, the Oscar”of the funeral sector, is awarded annually by an internationally composed jury for innovative ideas in the field of the burial system and the funeral culture in different categories. Stefan King box and Siegbert Altmiks, clearly convinced the jury with the concept as well as with the execution of their landmark-art project. This project includes the artwork of individual tombs and grave character in collaboration with survivors. Personal encounter with the theme of death and an active management of mourning are in the foreground.

Given the taboo and anonymization of the theme of death”, the project aims In addition society on the development of a new form of the funeral culture and a new covered integral view of life. The concept of landmark-art is based on the following fundamental ideas: the grave character always consist of two part objects, the actual tomb sculpture for placement on the cemetery and a corresponding counterpart, which will remain in the private sphere of the grieving, where it can be abstract paintings or photographs, small objects, containers, etc.. Both objects illustrate the duality of life and death in their mutual relation. As a landmark, they stand at the threshold and integrate the grief at the same time in the visible form in the daily life. The design impulse for the landmark objects is based on the development of a personal theme in the conversation between the client and the designer.

“” “” This topic is in the objects artistically implemented, such a name or title, such as game of life “, giving companies”, in between “or sound F”, and a distinctive shape In contrast to the ready-made uniforms tombstone. The grieving of survivors is supported by an active Act on the objects, such as reordering individual elements of objects to design new patterns or generation of sounds. From this a new, personally developed meaningful and identity form of Ritualization can occur, which can contribute further to cope with grief. The landmark objects can be also a means for the struggle of the individual with the own future death. The project enables the development of a personal landmark secession at the lifetime of the customer, quasi pre mortem”. So its own way of an active employment can be found given the rather predominant ignorance and displacement of this subject with the death, also in cooperation with close relatives or friends. The judgment the IFA jury according to is with the landmark kind of project total excellent a Building bridges between traditional and modern grave character design managed. In addition, the project receives through the creation of a consciously living funeral culture in a time when the search for new orientations and values clear socio-political aspects, because do you want to change the world, you have to begin at the death.” (S.Winalt) Stefan King field as stone sculptor master leads his own tomb company in food. Siegbert Altmiks also works as a freelance sculptor in his own Studio in Essen. Siegbert Abdow

New Heavens

"And is the new Earth and new heaven" for the illusion of the external appearance and is the main, the main thrust of the work. "And she began a new earth and new heavens" as, or approximately so, I must say master (artist), hypocrisy turning on their creativity. In this article I want to think about the state of culture and art, painting, as well as on possible developments, it seems like to me. Good and evil have become clearer, it is already possible to understand and distinguish. Today's fine, I may say "art" based on a primitive universal principle of life today, "buy – sell," filled spaces of the streets and galleries, thank God, not all of the Internet. Sell at all costs, forgetting that this is a road to nowhere, and that wild market here will not do, will only get worse and worse. The habit of surviving ulcer ingrained in our souls! But the real art of an elitist thing and piece, and requires special, individual attitudes. Cine image of "cowards" brilliantly played by Mr.

Vitsin, with painted swans on the "scoop" the market, broadcasting: "I earn more mermaids" seems prophetic and immortal! "The people speechless! " The proud name of the artist's discredited, in the language of a primitive society of consumption, is omitted. Believe it should be, and there is nothing in the world than this glam sugar sticky vulgarity, reigning now almost everywhere. Almost all things! "The people are silent!" No order for the national masterpiece! Yes, and the people, something not yet seen. Who ordered? In place of a living culture came to "culture" of the electron, and it is not masterpieces creates. Experience shows that new, "universal" methods of learning in art can not cope, wiring lights. One size fits all electronic world does not measure! Will be enough! Internet spiritually too small, it does not replace the living human communication.

Leonardo

Moving away from the medieval canons with their schematic, they have to portray people in more natural against the background of real landscapes and interiors. By Tommaso Masaccio 1424 adorned with beautiful frescoes of the church in Florence. In the same period, Filippo Brunelleschi built the magnificent architecture of the building. Among his masterpieces owned by the Pazzi Chapel in Florence. The ability to combine several different Occupation characteristic for the creators of the Renaissance. Michelangelo Buonarroti famous primarily as a sculptor, author of the famous sculpture "Pieta", but he was also a painter, and so, and even supervised the construction of St. Peter's in Rome in 1547.

But the most versatile differed by Leonardo da Vinci, which became the epitome of the humanist ideal of fully developed man. Leonardo was not only a brilliant artist created great paintings, the architect and sculptor, he had a tremendous knowledge and has made important discoveries in mathematics, science, and mechanics. Among the most celebrated figures of the Renaissance owned and artists Giotto, Botticelli and Raphael, Donatello and Ghiberti sculptor, architect Bramante. New developments in Italy and swept the rest of Europe. Universities in Oxford, Cambridge and Paris became centers of ideas Renaissance. They helped the spread of such thinkers as Erasmus and Thomas More, who tried to revise some of the religious dogma and to reform the Church.

The head of the "Northern humanists," Erasmus raised man above the church – for the time it was a bold idea. In the Netherlands, Germany and the ideals of the Renaissance were picked up by such artists as Van Eyck, Durer and Holbein, developed a special northern style of painting. In England Shakespeare and Spencer made a revolution in poetry and the performing arts. In 1600 Marie de Medici when she married the French king Henri IV, had brought with him to Paris of Italian craftsmen, painters and sculptors that further contributed to the spread of a new culture in Europe. Renaissance – a new stage in the culture, the transition to a new culture of time, which is characterized by reliance on an antique aesthetic. George Vasari coined the term "Renaissance." 1. This new way of thinking and belief, a special spiritual way of life and behavior. 2. This is a prime example of overall cultural reorientation. 3. The basis of culture of the Renaissance was the search for human identity. 4. Aesthetic and ethical Renaissance ideal – an image of a free universal creative person who creates himself. Circle of Humana studia – Renaissance humanism. Humanists refuse to scholastic learning sciences. Art is perceived and examined through the prism of science. 5. Manifesto of the Renaissance was a treatise Giovanni Pico della Miradolla "It is about human dignity." The man himself has to define its place in the world, or to rise above nature through their abilities, or reduced to an animal. The main idea of the Renaissance = a statement of grandeur and beauty of man. Thus, the overall conclusion of the humanists of the era was the recognition of endless human capabilities in improving themselves and the world.
