No money, no details. Just concepts.
“A Balloon Site, Coventry,” Laura Knight, 1943

Women’s Auxiliary Air Force personnel raise a barrage balloon, used to deter approaching attackers pursuing low flight paths. Knight, the painter, later served as the official artist at the Nuremberg trials.

Self-Portrait in flight from Harpies, Pier Francesco Mola, ca. 1664.

     This was drawn shortly after Mola met Salvator Rosa in Florence through their common friend Niccolò Simonelli. Mola was not subject, like Rosa, to an over developed ego and megalomania, yet the two shared many poetic and satirical inclinations.

The African Renaissance Monument in Senegal, larger that the Eiffel tower and the statue of liberty .. Things you don’t see in mainstream media.  @KrystVegaNeteru

This is beautiful.

I think this picture better illustrates the size of that monument.

I never even knew this existed this makes me so happy to find out about it
