The Ice Maiden

The Ice Maiden,realizada por Edmund Dulac, es la imagen más bella de un hada de las nieves. Integraba una serie de maravillosas acuarelas publicadas en el libro The Dreamer of Dreams escrito por Queen Marie of Romania.

La imagen de la dama se ajusta a los cánones de femeneidad art nouveau. Esbelta y delgada, tan sutil como un copo de nieve, irradia misterio. Blanco es su vestido, cristalina su corona y su manto está estrellado como el límpido cielo de una noche de invierno. Su mirada es dura como la escarcha y en las manos sostiene el corazón de una víctima, cuya sangre mancha de rojo los hielos eternos.Guardiana de la nieve, los osos polares forman su séquito. Sus lentos movimientos se han detenidos, mira fijamente al espectador como si hubiese sido advertida de nuestra espía presencia.

Esta preciosa ilustración de Dulac puede ser admirada en el video que forma parte de la exhibición de arte The Age of Enchantment / La era del encantamiento / Dulwich Picture Gallery

COMO SIEMPRE, EL MAGNÍFICO TRABAJO REALIZADO EN ESTE MÁGICO BLOG, ME FASCINA Y ME HACE FELÍZ, REMEMORANDO MIS DÍAS DE INFANCIA EN LOS QUE GOZABA, AL LADO DE MI MAMI Y MI ABUE, DE LOS MARAVILLOSOS CUENTOS DE HADAS ILUSTRADOS QUE ME HACÍAN SOÑAR CON UN MUNDO IRREAL Y MARAVILLOSO.
PRECISAMENTE, LOS CUENTOS QUE HOY PUBLICAN EN EL BLOG, SON LOS QUE MÁS HONDA HUELLA DEJARON EN MI MENTE DE NIÑA; PUES LAS HADAS DE LA NIEVE ERAN TAN ETÉREAS Y BELLAS, QUE ME CAUTIVARON IRREMEDIABLEMENTE.
DE TODO CORAZÓN AGRADEZCO EL ESFUERZO DE MI ADMIRADA AMIGA EN LA DISTANCIA, ADRIANA DE MIGUEL Y DE TODOS LOS COLABORADORES, DIRECTOS E INDIRECTOS DE ESTE FASCINANTE BLOG....!
SINCERAMENTE, ALMA.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

Hi

I just joined this good place. Lots of individuals have added so many good things here. Please accept my little contribution towards community. I would like to share some [url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you want to know how to lose 10 pounds in a calendar week, you are believably not looking for a general dieting and exercise plan. You can lose weight with a regular diet and exercise plan, Still this takes a lot of time doing utmost cardio workouts and following a strict diet. Here I will outline the exact steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a calendar week.

1. Stay away from all fried nutrients for the week
2. Drink In an 8oz glass of Citrus paradisi with breakfast every day. (this accelerates up your metabolism)
3. Consume average portions (stop eating when you are full)
4. Instead of consuming 3 big a meals a day, consume 5-6 small meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Aviod your habbit of eating after 9 P.M.. Its good to eat before 9 P.M. so that our body gets proper time to burn calories before sleep.
6. Proper sleep is necessary everyday.. Not having plenty sleep has been verified to be a ranking factor to the body putting up excess fat.
7. Apply a body/colon cleanse for the 7 days. This will get rid of extra weight stored just about the stomach area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that cause you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I reccomend you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is tested to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those individuals who desire to burn fat quickly, avoid alcohol.
