Very soothing to listen to. I imagine it could put a baby to sleep.

Mongolian throat singing. I didn't know Tibetan monks did this.

Don't doubt it for a minute.

In my case, I became aware of this style because of the Tibetan Gyuto Monks (back when internet was not even a dream), and I'm getting acquainted now with the Mongolians, which have something rolling on their own.

Multi-media art:
Each medium quality, the total greater than the sum.

Past giants had limited means of expression, but they made the most of what they had.

The masterful art of Gian Lorenzo Bernini, it makes you forget it's only marble.

Beauty gives breath to the soul for the soul is an extension of truth.

I have become a lover of music over the years and one of my favorite composers is Max Richter. Consider this being a philosophy forum:

The Consolations of Philosophy

For something more "vibrant" and "powerful" another set of composers (or band, I really do not know how to qualify them as they are unique) is Wardruna:

Tyr (he was the Norse Anthropormization of Sacrifice and Discipline, the two core values I have observe the truest and purest of philosophies to be founded upon)

That hand pressing into the flesh. Staggering really.

The accurate-to-eye imitation of flesh press was designed by a statue’s creator.

Movement was also purposely, non-randomly designed into the angles and diagonals of the solid stardust.

Flawed analogy. We evolved incrementally into a species with the brain and motor skills to do this sort of thing (of course some are far more developed in that part of the brain than others, which is why we use the words 'talented' or 'gifted' to describe such people).

Those lines in stone extending the eye into space are not random replicas of randomness. They are designed and calculated by the creator of the imitation, in collaboration with the stone.

Obviously, from a philosophical stance of meaning connected through various aspects of living, I and others more knowedgable might find attention turning towards answering the profound brevity of the so.

However, through knowledge of conditions formed by receptions, and because of the implications inherent within the small investment of merely two letters, an investment that bluntly reflects the degree of interest and involvement called skin in the game, effortation of whittling another chip from the preciousness of time only to delve into the universal nature of transcendence, achieved in any medium used to imitate design, even if it be sourced from mind, but in marble’s case for the successfully achieved purpose of creating the motion of emotion-driven lives within the frozen stardust, and by using the future viewer as an instrument in the process, peaks with a howdy and a good day, VT.

Great big statues but not much motion.

Oh, well, at least we can see this thread is having an effect on people. Your post resembles the review of an art critic: quite sophisticated and totally meaningless.

Walker, you keep coming up with ever lengthier ways of not saying anything. Wouldn't it be more efficient to just not put any text in your posts?

Although I can sympathize with the excitement over discovering a shared deficiency in comprehension, it’s rather curious that any affectionado might find fine design and technique in the imitation while denying the same in the original.
