Q:Hey there, I really like your Litany Against Fear artwork. I would love to use it to inspire a tattoo for myself, but i would need to make it my own with some changes. I am not an artist (I will be getting the tattoo guy to tweak it).. but I want to use to concept of the tree with the +ve and -ve text running through it, but I would make the figure robed like a bene gesserit and make the text linework cleaner, maybe change the font. Is it a 'meh', blessing or do you hate the idea?
I found the image as is on a
on a site, so it’s one of those times where the artist’s name wasn’t there to credit.
For what it’s worth I think your idea takes the original text by Herbert and makes the image your own, which is all the blessing I can give.
If you feel it appropriate you could try google’s image search, you might have better luck than I did at finding the originating artist
Ishtar, Astronaut, Goddess.
Top: Vey interesting depiction of Goddess Ishtar found in the temple of Ishtar in Assur (Assyria). This sculpture shows Ishtar in a some kind of close-fitting helmet with goggles. Also interesting is a fact that this partly wasted relief was one of the oldest artifacts discovered in foundations of the Ishtar temple in Assur. It is dated about 3000 BC.
Bottom: Hittie tablet depicting something very similar to modern rockets.
Laacher See or Laach Lake (in English) is a crater lake or more exactly a caldera lake in the Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, situated close to the cities of Koblenz, Mayen (11 km), and Andernach (14 km). It fills a volcanic caldera in the Eifel mountain range, the only caldera in Central Europe. It is part of the area of the “east Eifel volcanic field”.
The caldera of Laacher See was formed after the Laacher volcano erupted, between 12,900 and 11,200 years ago. The remaining crust collapsed into the empty magma chamber below, only two or three days after the eruption. With an estimated Volcanic Explosivity Index value of 6, this eruption was 250 times larger than the eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980.
Remains of this eruption can be found all over Europe and is often used for dating of sediments. A number of unique minerals, like Hauyn can be found in the region, and quaries to mine the stone as a building material.
The Laacher is still considered to be an active volcano, proven by seismic activities and heavy thermal anomalies under the lake. Carbon dioxide (CO2) gas from magma still bubbles up at the southeastern shore (mofettes), and scientists believe that a new eruption can happen at any time, which, today, would be a disaster beyond all description.
