Maltese Cyclops

Malta cross and go far out to sea track, similar to the stone rails (see “AIF” N 38). Built in the new stone age, the ruts were contemporaries of the temples, built of huge megaliths. Was able to build the ancient Atlanteans.

FARMER Lorenzo fed up to straighten the blade of the plow, nieszawska on the boulders, which was littered with his plot in the town of Tarxien. Having begun to uproot the rocks, he found under them smoothly hewn blocks with reliefs of great beauty. Due to the findings Temi Zammit, the first Maltese archaeologist, noticed a few oval buildings lie under a layer of gray ash. Researcher defined: this layer without traces of human activity — evidence of a volcanic eruption, the lava which covered the island more than 4.5 thousand years ago. So, temples were built before the disaster.

So exactly one hundred years ago in the center Tarsina dug up the temple complex. It is still amazing engineering and artistic skill. And his age close to 5 thousand years. In that distant time in Europe could not be competent engineers, skilled stone carvers. There was no metal. On this, at least, insists the historical science. Continue reading

Gothic architecture

goticheskaja-arhitektura “Eerily beautiful”- this term, in my opinion, best describes this style of architecture. Have you ever breathless from the sight of something truly beautiful? You will feel it, seeing the beauty of open-work, of magnificence, almost ethereal heights, these cathedrals. In this architecture there is something mysterious and, I believe, esoteric. Despite the fact that now this style is almost never used, it still remains relevant. To broaden and deepen their knowledge in Gothic architecture it is necessary to examine some of the nuances of the structure used by the Gothic architects.

Clearly see the features of the structure of Gothic cathedrals possible, comparing it with a Romanesque style. It is worth noting that he was “the forerunner of the” Gothic. To keep away from put themes, you can briefly describe the Romanesque style, namely, one word- “fortress”. Both styles are completely opposite to each other, so the Gothic style society refused to accept, considering the architecture of barbarism. But, over time, when France, England and Germany reacted positively to the style, it spread throughout Europe. Continue reading
