Gorgeous Bondage Ambrotype

The images on the net really not do justice to the original ambrotypes of Marcus Ranum. I know, because I have several of them at home in first life (IRL), and they are real precious treasures. Ambrotypes are not photo on paper, they are chemically treated glassplates. You really have to see and hold one to feel their true beauty.

Marcus, who's bondage works always are gorgeous, made another bondage ambrotype for your first life. It's up for sale at ebay for 3 more days. Make a bid to get this unique artwork. This is an one of a kind work, as every ambrotype is unique. So this is your opportunity to get an unique artwork for a very affordable price. You decide yourself how much it's worth to you. Go here.

Enjoy your art!

Ten years gone by 9/11

Today I sent the artwork 'September 11 tribute' by Mickie Mueller as a gift in several artgroups and wiccan/pagan groups. It is such a healing image, it touches my soul every time I see it. I hope it may bring comfort to the ones who receive it.

Mickie Mueller about her artwork:

"On Sept. 11 th we all watched in horror as three passenger planes hijacked by terrorists were crashed into the World Trade Center, and the Pentagon, a fourth crashing in the open in Pennsylvania. As I watched it felt like a hole in my heart, complete disbelief. Sometime during the day after the attacks, I had an inspiration. The next day I watched the services for the fallen Americans with many friends around me in the bar where I worked at the time. My friend Dawn brought a candle to light so that we could all be part of it. She and I talked about how we both wanted to do something to help, giving blood was a good thing, but we both felt the need to do something more as well. When I described the picture I had in my head, Dawn agreed to model for me. Her strong emotions about the loss that was felt by us all really came through, and this powerful piece was born.

She may be an angel or a winged Goddess, she is the feminine healing and nurturing Spirit. The eagle she cradles in her arms is injured, but not down for good, his head held high. As she sends divine healing energy to the eagle and the nation he represents, we see four feathers at her feet, symbolic of the four planes that went down. A tear streams down her face and her wings fold around in a protective motion, remeniscent of Isis healing Osiris. This is my tribute in loving memory of the families, friends, and heros of this country. They are many."
