Install an Outdoor Water Feature as a Memorial

To pay tribute to the memory of someone who has passed, consider creating a garden fountain. A lot of traditional rituals have been eliminated in today’s society. Commemorating loved ones who have passed is still the standard, however. Personal items from the dead person’s life often play an important part in a commemorative piece. They come in many shapes and sizes, and backyard garden fountains are quite common. Adding personal items such as photos or a nameplate, planting a tree, or holding yearly remembrance ceremonies at the fountain will make the garden fountain more unique to your loved one.

Remembering those who have passed is easy with a garden fountain.

Prosperity and a good life lived can be remembered with the flowing water, which is a figurative representation of those things. It is highly worthwhile to buy a high quality, sturdy garden fountain that is impervious to bad weather so that it will last a very long time. You will want to ensure that your memorial will endure many years once in place.

Enhance Your Yard with the Help of Feng Shui

Experience the health benefits of feng shui by introducing its design elements into your yard.

Size is not the main factor when incorporating feng shui design to your garden. A huge area is great for those fortunate enough to have it, but a smaller area can still be useful in feng shui design.

Whether you are adding feng shui design to your home or garden, the tools are the same. In order to understand the energy map, or bagua, of your garden, you will first need to understand your home’s bagua.

In order to make the most of feng shui, it is important to start by understanding how to bolster each of its five elements.

The Earth element, for example, should be located in the northeast section of your garden which connects to the personal growth and self-cultivation energy in feng shui design. This could be the ideal place to put a meditative Zen garden with some attractive stones because these represent the Earth element in feng shui.

Give some thought to introducing a water feature into these feng shui areas: East (health & family), North (career & path in life), or Southeast (money and abundance).

Agrippa's Astonishing, but Mostly Forgotten Water-Lifting Technology

The compliments Agrippa’s water-lifting creation received by Andrea Bacci in 1588 was temporal. It may be that the Acqua Felice, the second of Rome’s early modern conduits made the unit obsolete when it was connected to the Villa Medici in 1592. Its use might have been brief but Camillo Agrippa’s invention had a prominent place in history as the most impressive water-lifting device of its kind in Italy prior to the modern era. There may have been some other impressive water-related works in Renaissance landscapes in the later part of the sixteenth century, like water fountains that played music, water caprices (or giochi d’acqua) and even scenographic water displays, but none were motorized by water that defied the force of gravity.

Archaic Greek Artistry: Large Statuary

The first freestanding statuary was developed by the Archaic Greeks, a notable success since until then the only carvings in existence were reliefs cut into walls and columns. Younger, attractive male or female (kore) Greeks were the subject matter of most of the sculptures, or kouros figures. The kouroi, considered by the Greeks to represent beauty, had one foot stretched out of a fixed forward-facing pose and the male statues were always nude, with a compelling, powerful physique. Around 650 BC, life-size versions of the kouroi began to be observed. Throughout the Archaic period, a big time of change, the Greeks were developing new forms of government, expressions of art, and a better understanding of people and cultures outside Greece. But in spite of the issues, the Greek civilization continued to advance, unabated.
