  1. Not only Stradivari but also his mother is watching from the photo. Very emotional and poetic, unique label.
  2. Speaking about traditional folks wooden houses, in Croatia (around 400 kilometers far from Austrian Carinthia) there are preserved several (numerous) historic examples, hundreds years old. Significant is a characteristic type of dovetail so called “Croatian corner” (“hrvaški vuglec”), but also exist examples with “German corner” (nemški vuglec”). All those houses are just amazing, in whole and also in every detail. " "Croatian corner" "German corner" Finally, just for fun I’m adding a little brain teaser: Below is a carpenter joint of two pieces of wood. All sides look the same. How does floor plan layout look like, for the pieces to be disassembled? Anybody?
  3. It seems that the first word on the Strad label reads 'MODEL'. It is an English word, if this is of any relevance. The length of the back is 37cm. Is it a small viola?
  4. Dear edi malinaric, hope you don't mind if I correct you a bit: If you say "Gora gora gora gora", that only means "Mountain mountain mountain mountain" which is pretty meaningless. But if you say "Gore u gori, gora gori" the sentence completely changes its meaning into: "Gore (up) u gori (in the mountain), gora (the mountain) gori (is burning). Croatian language is far from being simple. Just opposite, it is very rich, complex and complicated. Grammatical cases (which in English are completely unknown) and a lot of synonyms make learning Croatian very difficult. I'm sure you know all that very well, but I add this explanation for those who don't, and might be interested. Cheers, romberg flat
  5. At the present time the coats of arms are replaced with avatars on forums. Just look at them and everything will be clear to you.
  6. I just saw a program for "Jacob Stainer zum 400. Geburtstag" event. Much more Barock then Bock. https://www.tiroler-landesmuseen.at/page.cfm?vpath=programm/stainer&genericpageid=11379 Eagerly waiting for Jacob's report.
  7. Yes, ein Bock served by a girl dressed in dirndl could be a good solace.
  8. Thank you Blank face, that was my guess too, but I was curious maybe Stainer could had a heraldic armory, something like Stradivari: * Antonio Stradivari (1644-1737): famous violin-maker. Arms: per fess indented gules and or, two dolphins counterchanged. Innsbruck, ich muss dich lassen is a very sad song indeed. Hope you will find some comfort.
  9. Found these Stainer Family coats of arms on Google. The second is assumed to belong to Jacobus Stainer. If so, where the original could be seen? Can somebody shade more light on this?
  10. Considering the motif (The Kama Sutra), better not to ask.
  11. In the words of W. Kandinsky (another degenerated artist ): "One should picture the spirit of a subject, not a subject itself."
  12. Excellent. There is a hope for you. Excellent. Now you only have to wait and see how people would like it. Excellent. The same was what Goebbels thought.
  13. No. He just did it his way. Like all giants did...
  14. Believe it or not all the giants of Modern art knew how to draw in realistic way, but did not want to. Thank goodness. Marc Chagall: Bella with White Collar, 1917
  15. ...not exactly a painting but still...
