The winter soltice, the Christmas, the Yule, the celebration of the rebirth of the sun and life

During the winter solstice christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ but before the Christian invasion of the world ancient people celebrated the birth of the sun and the beginning of a new cycle of life. They set wood on fire believing the holly fire will erase all hat was bad in the year that is over  and will bring back to life the god of the sun, to start a new life cycle of nature.
Jesus was not born in this period and christians have stolen the ancient tradition and legends, replacing the sun with Jesus.
This is my drawing of the essence of this ancient winter solstice holiday, the idea of (re)birth of life from the fire, the beginning, the begnning of a new cycle of the sun and life and the north star, represented in the popular culture as an 8 point star, an ancient shepherd symbol

Mnasidica missing Atthis and Sappho

This is my painting of Mnasidica, one of the followers of Sappho.
I've made this painting being inspired by the poem Sappho has written about her being far away in Lydia(a place that belongs to Turkey today), still missing Atthis who was like a goddess to her and the life they shared in Sappho's thaissos,she can almost see the shadow of Atthis singing and dancing in her mind, she can almost hear the echo of her lyre and divine voce from the past.
Like many other young girls Mnasidica had to leave Sappho's feminity school  to get married and she got married to a rich man who had an important role in that society but even is she was shining like a diva among the lydian women, she was not happy and watching the sea with her sad eyes all she wanted was her desperate scream to be heard but Sappho And Atthis to were far, over the sea.
You can read Sappho's poem below



Atthis, our loved Mnasidica dweels at far-
off Sardis, but she often sends her thoughts
hither, thinking how once we used to love
in the days when she thought thee like a
glorious goddess, and loved thy song the
best. And now she shines among the dames
of Lydia as after sunset the rosy-fingered
moon beside the stars that are about her,
when she spreads her light o'er briny sea
and eke o'er flowery field, while the good
dew lies on the ground and the roses revive
and the dainty anthrysc and the honey-lotus
with all its blooms. And oftentime when
our beloved, wandering abroad, calls to mind
her gentle Atthis, the heart devours her
tender breast with the pain of longing; and
she cries aloud to us to come thither; and
what she says we know full well, thou and I,
for Night, the many-eared, calls it to us
across the dividing sea.

To Atthis, a poem written by Sappho and two ball point pen drawings



These drawings are about the sad story of a girl who had to leave Sappho's thaissos to marry a man who was living somewhere in Sardis. Even if she was shining among the Lydian women she was not happy. She was missing Atthis and the life they shared at Sappho's Thaissos.

To Atthis
Though in Sardis now,
she things of us constantly
and of the life we shared.
She saw you as a goddess
and above all your dancing gave her deep joy.
Now she shines among Lydian women like
the rose-fingered moon
rising after sundown, erasing all
stars around her, and pouring light equally
across the salt sea
and over densely flowered fields
lucent under dew. Her light spreads
on roses and tender thyme
and the blooming honey-lotus.
Often while she wanders she remem-
bers you, gentle Atthis,
and desire eats away at her heart
for us to come.

A sad story about a suicidal bride


These are my drawings and paintings of a bride who has committed suicide long time ago be cause she was forced to marry a man she didn't love. She ran away from the wedding and then she has thrown herself of the rocks in a place in the Apuseni Mountain in Romania where there is a waterfall that got it's  name after this tragedy. 
She wanted to die be cause she could not accept a life next to that man. How could she spend the rest of her life next to him. Marriage and family was like a prison to her and she had no place to escape. If she ran away where she could go? There was no place for her in this world. 
Death was her only choice.
Unfortunately she was not  the only one. In Romania's history there are many young women who were forced into marriage and had no other choice than suicide.I'ts terrible to have no choice and death was the only thing this girls could choose. 
At Slanic Prahova there was another bride who has committed suicide.
If I lived in those times I would have done the same thing and I am happy I (still) live in a free world and I can work. 
I can't imagine my life next to a man.
Women in the past had terrible lives and I cry when I thing about their sad stories.
Even today women face discrimination and there a many women who get married for money houses and other things they are not allowed to get by their work and end up in miserable lives.
Here in Romania I've never seen a successful business woman or a woman with an important function who has never had a husband/boyfriend and I wonder why. There are women who pretend to be successful career women but they all have boyfriends or husbands with greater business or key jobs behind while all the single women I know have no job or in the happiest case they work hard 24/7 just to pay their bills and keep themselves at the lowest survival line, not to get rich.  It is not be cause women are inferior by their nature as many guys say, it's be cause they face discrimination all the time and society doesn't allow them to be really independent. When women reach key jobs or have a business that apparently works it's be cause they are in a relationship with an rich influent man not be cause their work or intelligence is appreciated,  A woman's profesional succes here in Romania depends on the men she has relationships with and that's why you will never see a single woman or a lesbian with an important well paid job or a successful business.  
I hope history will not repeat and I hope things will change and women will get more power and independence.
Even today there are places where women have no right to decide for their own lives and that makes me sad.

A drawing about me and her

I was sleeping in her loving arms feeling loved, feeling safe. I could feel her body next to mine, so close to each other and her breath on my face and then she has kissed my ear. She has kissed and touched me like no one has ever done it before. I woke up and she was not there. It was just me alone in the morning light while the the ringing alarm was reminding me of the job I forgot about.
Was it a dream?
Was it a memory like a ghost from the past?
I've made this drawing of me and her today.
