Video Clip Version 1.
April, 2008.

Comment: May the nature & our approach to nature teach us more about who we really are, so, that we can enjoy our life more & be more productive, happy & successful. First watch & listen, then simply watch without the sound and then listen without watching. Let me know what you felt after.



"Nature Speaks. Sense Of Our Existence"
Video Clip Version 2.

Comment: Nature has all the answers. All we create & do is nothing comparing to the nature's forces & greatness. Let's worship the mother nature and the Mother will worship us. Watch & listen to the clip very attentively. It is recommended to have relatively quiet ambiance & balanced state of mind & spirit for the best enjoyment & understanding of this kind of art.

DAMYAN29's Artistic Photography Entries for the "This Was - This Is" Contest 2012, Budapest, Hungary







  • ARTISTIC PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST "This Was. This Is." 2012. "Label your past, mark your present!" DAMYAN29's 5 entries. SEE THE IMAGES ABOVE.

  • THEME OF THE CONTEST: What part does the past play in our present? "This was. This is." aims to incite reflection on the importance of things and ideas considered "historical" within our lives in the Europe of 2011. People from different backgrounds are encouraged to ponder the meaning of "history" and engage in a lively international dialogue on conceptions of the past and present.

  • The project calls for participants to designate things, buildings, ideas, etc. from their everyday lives as "this was" or "this is", take a picture and post it on this website. The users of the website can either take part actively and upload photos, or they can just rate, flag and comment on other contributions. We are interested in the opinion of the generation that experienced the changes after 1989, as well as the generation born after the regime change, as they have different perspectives on "Old Europe" as well as their local, national, and regional history.

  • "This was. This is." is designed as a project that will allow for maximum democratic involvement, enabling participants to find their own approaches and answers – be they biographically inspired or dealing with the complex issues of greater historical narratives. Thus there is no jury decision about the best contributions, but the Users decide together about the winners! The project aims to show that history can be the object of dialogue and lead to a mutual understanding instead of causing tension and conflict.

  • We want to incite discussion and enable a young European audience to understand different views on the past and present as shareable and debatable.

  • Please feel free to share your ideas, thoughts, tastes & express your opinion on Damyan29's artistic photography.

Narcissus with a Peacock. In "Neo-Nouveau"/Jugendstil Style.

Inspired from Greek mythology the central figure of the painting , Narcissus, appears with a Peacock, a proeminent Art Nouveau bird-symbol (sublime beauty), craving his beauty. Such giants of Jugendstil like Alfonse Mucha (czech) and Gustav Klimt (austrian) played a key role as sources of inspiration for this painting.


I also used 2 titans that flank the composition on both sides on decorative nouveau frame as symbols of strength, protection, durability drawn from a neo-renaissance style facade of one of the beautiful buildings in the "Vynohrady" (grapes) district in Prague. I present the full colour and a tinted black-and-white variation of the painting.

"Narcissus with a Peacock" 2009. Neo-Nouveau

Decorative Glass Pannels

I've always adored this material.

It's flexible, versatile, fragile, can have any possible colours, can be transparent and opaque, cold and warm, reflective, futuristic and ofcourse beautiful. The GLASS. It's a parabola of water. The solid water in it's countless forms and variations. A truesy fascinating building/ art material for the future.

How monotone and boring are most of the office buildings, or massive regular plane facades cover with tons of glass pannels with no spirit, soul or creational nerve. I present a possible design for a Public Bulding with coloured glass pannels using one of my digital graphic works "Marylin Monroe, the Dusk/Symbol Variation". I used a skyscraper on purpose. The skyscrapers are a symbol of industrialization and developement era, and the decorative IMAGE used, as a specific continuation, the beauty symbol of the XX-th century - Marylin Monroe.

The Magical Symbolism of the Number 33


I was always fond of numbers and their magic. Numerology presents to me a unusual science
which in one or another way, as I see it, reflects the structure of the universe we live in, by counting the objects and measuring phenomena around us.
Geometry, Physics, Mathematics, Astronomy and many other sciences need NUMBERS to define certain rules that people have discovered along the history of the world, and use the magic of the numbers that helped so much to explain elementary laws of physics. It appears that the numbers are the core of the universe, and all it's content... as we know, the analysed part by scientists, our Solar system, follows exact cycles, periods, exact measurable rules that repeat during a very long time so far! Is it a result of chaos or entropy (measure of randomness and successive regressive process)? Think about it.

"Sagrada Familia"/"The Holy Family" Facade of Jesus' Passions. Fragment of a Bronze Plaque. (Barcelona, Spain)


Once I came across a interesting numerologic exercise to see what number domines me or my life. So the scheme was simple to sum the numbers of your birthday... As numerology is one of most symbolistic sciences of all which use number, i realised the number of my life is 33 (summing all the unique numbers in my birth date = 33).

I did a bit of research and understood my hidden connection with certain people, objects, dates through just analysing the numbers and have discovered even more when reserched in depth the symbolism of number 33. Also i came upon another interesting fact, that most of people born with the Karmic Number 33, were mostly born closer to the end of each century... Also if we analyse history we can see that many of the people : the geniuses and tyrans were born in the end of a certain century.. just a few last decades. If you want to find out your potential Karmic number just follow : for exemple you were born on 21 december 1978 = the calculation is : 2+1 +1+2+ 1+9+7+8 = 31.


The Sagrada Família Magic Square

Josep Subirachs was one of the leading sculptors of the XXth century in Barcelona. The Passion façade of the Sagrada Família church in Barcelona, designed by him, features a 4×4 magic square: The magic constant of the square is 33, the age of Jesus at the time of the Passion. Structurally, it is very similar to the Melancholia magic square, but it has had the numbers in four of the cells reduced by 1.


Fragment of the Expiatory Temple of Sagrada Familia ; Juda betraying Jesus by kissing him and The Magic Square summing 33 in almost 33 combinations. (Barcelona, Spain)

  • King David reigned 33 years to Jerusalem. (1 Ch 3,4)

  • There are 33 doctors of the Church, or theologians, to which the Roman Catholic Church recognizes a particular authority of witnesses of the doctrine.

  • After a fast of 40 days, Buddha left the desert to go to exert his apostolate and he was followed by 33 princes of spirits to which he gave the sacred instruments that are used by the musicians in the pagodas.
  • A legend wants also that 33 "Arhats" spread Buddhism.
  • In his "Divine Comedy", Dante attributed 33 songs to the Purgatory and 33 songs to the Sky.

  • The United Nations logo represents a terrestrial globe divided in 33 fragments.
  • Total number of vertebrae of the spinal column of the human body, in which pass 33 pairs of nervous groups.

  • The number 33 is used 6 times in the Bible.
  • The words "cross" and "devil" are used 33 times in the New Testament and the word "sickness", 33 times in the Old Testament.
  • The words "miracle" and the verb "to blaspheme" are used 33 times in the Bible.
  • The Bible contains totally : 66 books (33 + 33)

The Scheme in the temple of Sagrada Familia in Barcelona (Catalonia region, Spain) explaining the combinations of highlighted in red numbers summing 33. The right bottom corner containing the Magic Square thats sums "33" in all directions and senses.

~~~

Some famous people (very few by the way) having the number 33 as the potential symbolic (Karmic way of a Saviour, aslo symbolising the TRUTH) number in their birth date:

  • Albert Einstein (German Physicist) = March 14, 1879 = 1+4+0+3+1+8+7+9 = 33
  • Alla Pugacheva (Russian Artist, Singer) = April 15, 1949 = 1+5+0+4+1+9+4+9 = 33
  • Rafael Nadal (Spanish Tennis Player) = June 3, 1986 = 0+3+0+6+1+9+8+6 = 33
