My Secrets Of Figure Drawing Review

Highly Recommended

Of all books related to the topic, I love reading this e-book because of its well-planned flow of content. Even a beginner like me can easily gain huge amount of knowledge in a short period.

My opinion on this e-book is, if you do not have this e-book in your collection, your collection is incomplete. I have no regrets for purchasing this.

Pictish Stones And Crosses

Pictish Spiral

At Dupplin, west of Perth, Anglian influence is apparent in the sculptures of vinescrolls and beasts. There is similar ornament on the cross at Crieff in Tayside. Mustachioed men resembling those on Muiredach's Cross at Monasterboice are on the Dupplin cross, and on a cross-slab at Benvie, Tayside. They may represent Scots rather than Picts, who were shown bearded. A cross-slab from Inchbrayock, Tayside, has a squared cross on one side, accompanied by figures, interlace and a beast. The rear, as with so many Pictish stones, has human figures engaged in hunting and Biblical scenes. The interlace and spirals on the Inchbrayock stone, like much Pictish carving of this period, is a free and dynamic interpretation of the underlying geometrical matrix.

Craft Techniques And Celtic Ornament

Book Kells Saint Bridget

Opposite Human figures depicted on Celtic Crosses. Left (above) upper part of cross at Gosforth, Cumbria, England, showing an episode from the Norse prophecy of the end of this world Ragnarok, in which Odin's son, Vidar, slays the destructive Fcnris-Wolf (below) Pictish cavalryman, Inchbrayock, Tayside, Scotland.


Parisii Coins Art

On the reverse, human figures occur in several roles, as charioteer, as a rider on horseback or as a foot-soldier. In all these representations we are dealing essentially with Celticized renderings of classical models, though the accessories and associated symbols are commonly those of Celtic iconography, such as torcs, carnyxes or boar images. In more than one Gaulish example a naked female figure riding a horse is armed with the Celtic warrior's equipment of spear and shield, a graphic parallel to Polybius' account of the Gaesatae. Because of the pedigree of Celtic coinage, and the obvious borrowing of myth and imagery from the classical world and beyond, it would be arguable how much one might infer of the everyday life of the Celts from images depicted on coins. The fact that a laurel wreath might be translated into an ear of corn hardly affords a profound insight into Celtic economy. Among the wardrobe of clothed figures on Celtic coinage, the use of breast armour has...

The HaLLstatt Pernod

Hallstatt Period Metal

Below Several bronze and ceramic Hallstatt finds were decorated with representations of human figures, which possibly had a votive significance. One of the most spectacular grave finds of the Hallstatt period was that made during the excavation of an early Celtic burial at Eberdingen-Hochdorf in Germany in the late 1970s. The burial chamber contained a bronze couch dated to about 530 BC, and the body of a well-dressed warrior was laid out on top of it. Its back was decorated with depictions of warriors and wagons, while the whole couch was supported on eight castor wheels, shaped like female figures. The primitive style of these depictions is deceptiv e, since the overall effect is one of great detail and esthetic perfection.

Geese and cranes

Once covered in silver-wash, from a fourth-century AD shrine at Maiden Castle, Dorset.65 The bull originally had three horns (see pp. 222-3) and has the remains of three female figures on its back. In Irish vernacular legend, women on occasions metamorphosed into cranes (chapter 7), and it may be that, on this figure, women are substitutes for the marsh-birds associated on the Continent with Tarvostrigaranus, thus presenting iconographically a tradition well documented in the early Insular literature.

Jupiter Columns

From this seven- or eight-fold stone comes the shaft, which in many cases is carved with patterns. Sometimes the patterns resemble the bark of a tree. A variation can be seen on a Jupiter Column from Hausen which is covered with stylized oak leaves and acorns in a regular tesse-lation. The oak was the holy tree of Jupiter and his sky-god equivalents in the other European pantheons. Typical of Jupiter Column shafts is one discovered at Walheim, which has the lower portion resembling scales or bark, while the upper portion, divided from it by a ropelike pattern, has a vinescroll in which human figures carry out various actions. Originally associated with Dionysos, the vinescroll was adopted by the Christian artists to become a major element in their iconography, re-interpreted as 'the true vine', signifying the regenerative powers symbolized by Jesus Christ. Closely following the example of Jupiter Columns, scrolls of vine leaves appear on the shafts of Celtic Crosses. Good examples...

Celt Sunwheel

There are several variant forms of the wheel. The pattern that was adopted later by the Celtic Christian church, and taken to be the basic form, is the four-spoked wheel. Although it is by far the most common, however, it is not the only form, as the number of spokes are variable. There are also examples composed of two concentric circles. In the Scandinavian rock-carvings, these forms appear in the same contexts, and thus are assumed to be versions of one another rather than completely different symbols. The circles may be shown alone, or with appendages that can be interpreted as supports. Sometimes they are carried by human figures, either above the head or as shields. They are borne on ships, and depicted as the wheels of actual vehicles.
