Egyptian Styled

Another art that has captured the attention of the world is the Egyptian art. Spiritual and symbolic in nature, the Egyptian art form is inspired by animals, birds and nature.

cmn42History has it that Egyptians used various metals and interesting color combinations to paint meanings on the tombs of the dead. Animals and spiritual beings generally were painted along with human figures (generally of the dead person) to bring them to an easy after life (or moksha).

The animals represented generally are the snake (for protection, loyalty, and reproduction), or the falcon (for success and prosperity), the cat (the keeper of after life), and other animals like the bull and the beetle. Symbols represent spiritual beings like the eye of Horous (or Ra), and the famous Ankh.

Although we don’t have to worry about those burried in the tombs, we can definitely get our protection and spirituality from the animals and symbols of the Egyptians. A dynasty so strong and advanced that we are still in awe of all their creations and connections to the beyond, keeping these symbols at home for their protection power is definitely a yes!

Keeping the consciousness of today’s environment, and the power of these symbols and artwork, a recycled lamp, hand- painted in power symbols, from ColorMeNew. To add to their spiritual strength, they come in plain colors of black and white, with a light to make them stronger.

Egyptian art, hand painted on recycled bottles, for your home and spirituality. Originally inspired only from ColorMeNew

Quilt Styled

t

Art forms are so magical, especially when they are inspired due to adversities. Like the quilts from the yesteryears came about in the New World (also known as industrial kickstart times) when migration to USA was rampant. As people migrated in large numbers, and due to shortage of textiles and warm clothes, the ladies of the house used all that they could find to put together cloth materials to keep their families warm. Thus, the innovation of the quilted patterns, which are now considered as collectible art forms even placed in museums.

The beauty of quilted art is that at first sight, they are warm to look at and colorful. Pretty little colorful patterns sewn together to jump under them and cozy up.

How about though, using this warm by your bedside, lit prettily at night keeping you in a good mood, and promising sweet dreams? A dream catcher on top of the bed can add to perfection.

Inspired by the brightness of this art and it’s history, it was so much fun to make this lamp fwitenglish quiltedfrom glass bottles.
