Spirit of the Great Heart
Madiba moved on beyond the stars last night. A number of photographers, artists and song writers paid tribute to this great human being during the struggle years and beyond. I really like this Veronika piece which has a sweetness and light capturing the essence of a beautiful soul

"Mysterium Tremendum Et Fascinans" – Gone in less than 6 seconds
This beautiful Faith47 work was released last night via the Street Art News online store as 47 limited editions – they were snapped up immediately with little change of obtaining one. Ah well. I tried.
“This artwork was inspired by the German theologian Rudolf Otto, referencing his analysis of the spiritual experience that, in his view, underlies all belief in deities, the supernatural, the sacred, the holy and transcendent.
He calls this experience “numinous,” and designated the Latin phrase: Mysterium Tremendum Et Fascinans.
The numinous is “wholly other”— entirely different from anything we experience in ordinary life. It evokes a reaction of silence. But the numinous is also a mysterium tremendum which is the tendency to invoke fear and trembling with its overwhelming power.
Finally, the numinous presents itself as fascinans, merciful and gracious with a tendency to attract, fascinate and compel.”

This little beauty is hidden away in a block of half demolished houses in Auckland Park Jozi - I’ve not seen a photograph of this anywhere else but in my collection.
DAL EAST IN THE DEAD ZONE - 2012
I photographed these in 2012 gracefully leaping across the side of a churchyard wall in Woodstock Cape Town - these mystical creatures has since been buffed.
