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.

Maori Patterns

img_1086

Maori is the famous tribe from New Zealand. The only tribe known from the Down Under, Maoris are spiritual in nature. Their art forms are inspired to bring spiritual growth, protection, safety, and other spiritual purposes. The symbols are generally geometric in nature, with triangles and curves, on protection animals, most famous being the monkey, the bull, and the eagle.

Maori art has never faded away, and took it’s popularity in the tattoo world. Masks are made from wood, and bones are considered negative energy if placed in one position for a long time. To save the trees, and keep you away from bones, these Maori symbols are handprinted on recycled bottles. Eco friendly lights add the glow to bring in the essence of protection.

For those neo-spiritualists, we don’t need to find bones or etch our bodies to bring protection and spiritual growth in our lives. Maori designs are neatly and most accurately handprinted on ColorMeNew’s recycled bottles, to bring spirituality and protection to you. You can now light up your protection symbol to meditate and /or to connect with the world beyond.

Barcelona styled

cmn52

I fell in love with Barcelona tile art when I was gifted a book on it by my mom, during her travels to Spain. The blast of colors, and the crazy combinations of designs was just mind-blowing, and I fell in love with this art form instantly.

The art of tiles was born in Barcelona. Mosaic and ceramic art was a big deal during the history times. Glazed tiles were invented in Barcelona. It was a form of art that was very much appreciated; so much so that different classes of society had different tiles to walk on. While the lower middle class of those times walked on simple bi-colored tiles, the elite and the priests had their own set of tiles which differed on the number of colors, and intricacy of patterns. Pretty flowers and abstract patterns, hand painted and glazed spread around the city.

Although mosaic art began back in 3500 BC in Mesopotamia, the Spanish somehow took to it and perfected it in ways that hasn’t changed to this day. After the fall of Spanish Empire many other cultures took to this art form in different materials like glass and ceramics, which can be found largely in Muslim Architecture and Roman infrastructure. These tiles are so beautifully made, that some are even preserved in museums of Europe.

Enough about history though, because although this art form is absolutely spectacular, and one of my personal favorites, glazing ceramic and using it in art form is now a lot of waste of earth and non-degradable POP. Having said that, this art form in all it’s colors can brighten any mood. So, why just put in under your feet when we can have it handpainted for you on sustainable ware that can light up and brighten your homes?

Thus, Barcelona inspired patterns, handpainted on recycled bottles.
