Ear of Dionysius, Siracusa, Sicily, Italy

March 17th, 2017 No comments

Ear of Dionysius

Taken during our second visit to Sicily to visit family where we toured around Siracusa and other towns.

From Wikipedia…

“The Ear of Dionysius (Italian: Orecchio di Dionisio) is a limestone cave carved out of the Temenites hill in the city of Syracuse, on the island of Sicily in Italy. Its name comes from its similarity in shape to the human ear.

The name of the cave was coined in 1586 by the painter Caravaggio. It refers to the tyrant Dionysius I of Syracuse. According to legend (possibly one created by Caravaggio), Dionysius used the cave as a prison for political dissidents, and by means of the perfect acoustics eavesdropped on the plans and secrets of his captives.” — Wikipedia

Also available on 30 other products including tops, totes, cards and cases.

 I choose this scarf as a Christmas gift for my wife this year to add to the collection she often wears when teaching. The colors are beautiful and the photo holds great memories for all of us. I was very impressed with the quality of the fabric and the printing, which turned out amazingly clear and very accurate to the colors of the original photo.

Narrowboat “Malahat” on the Nottingham Canal, Nottingham, UK [Watercolor]

Narrowboat

Narrowboat “Malahat” on the Nottingham Canal, Nottingham, UK 

One of the many canal boats we saw in our Summer trip to Leeds, York and Nottingham. The brightly colored boats and their peaceful surroundings — even in the middle of urban areas — draw you in with dreams of gentle cruising, rural countryside and a life free from hurry and stress. While I am not sure it is bucolic as all that, it certainly makes your imagination run when you see them tied up alongside the canal.

The light and shadow inside York Minster are dramatic without being dark and oppressive like some older cathedrals. Light and color stream in through the windows and reflect off the light colored arches.
