TLALOC AZTEC GOD BY BADDER ART

TLALOC AZTEC GOD BY BADDER ART

Tlaloc (Classical Nahuatl: Tlāloc] was an important deity in Aztec religion; as supreme god of the rains, he was also by extension a god of fertility and of water. He was widely worshiped as a beneficent giver of life and sustenance, but he was also feared for his ability to send hail, thunder, and lightning, and for being the lord of the powerful element of water. Tlaloc is also associated with caves, springs, and mountains, most specifically the sacred mountain in which he was believed to reside. His animal forms include herons and other wet or water dwelling creatures such as amphibians, snails, and possibly sea creatures, particularly ones that inhabit seashells.A specific plant also bears a                                                                                                               relationship to Tlaloc. Known to the Aztecs as Yauhtli, Tagetes lucida, was burned as a ritual incense in native religious ceremonies.

The cult of Tlaloc is one of the oldest and most universal in ancient Mexico. Although the name Tlaloc is specifically Aztec, worship of a storm god like Tlaloc, almost always associated with mountaintop shrines and with life-giving rain, is as at least as old as Teotihuacan and likely was adopted from the Maya god Chaac or vice versa, and/or ultimately perhaps from an earlier Olmec precursor. An underground Tlaloc shrine has been found at Teotihuacan.

In Aztec cosmology, the four corners of the universe are marked by “the four Tlalocs” (Classical Nahuatl: Tlālōquê which both hold up the sky and function as the frame for the passing of time. Tlaloc was the patron of Calendarthe day Mazātl. In Aztec mythology, Tlaloc was the lord of the third sun which was destroyed by fire.

Additionally, Tlaloc is thought to be one of the patron deities of the trecena of 1 Quiahuitl (along with Chicomecoatl). Trecenas are the thirteen-day periods into which the 260-day calendar is divided. The first day of each trecena dictates the augury, or omen, and the patron deity or deities associated with the trecena.

In the Aztec capital Tenochtitlan, one of the two shrines on top of the Great Temple was dedicated to Tlaloc. The high priest who was in charge of the Tlaloc shrine was called “Quetzalcoatl Tlaloc Tlamacazqui.” It was the northernmost side of this temple that was dedicated to Tlaloc, the god of rain and agricultural fertility. In this area, a bowl was kept in which sacrificial hearts placed on certain occasions, as offerings to the rain gods.Although Templo Mayor had its northern section dedicated to Tlaloc, the most important site of worship of the rain god was on the peak of Mount Tlaloc, a 4100-meter-high mountain on the eastern rim of the Valley of Mexico. Here the Aztec ruler came and conducted important ceremonies once a year, and throughout the year pilgrims offered precious stones and figures at the shrine. Many of the offerings found here also related to water and the sea.

“EMPIRE OWL VIEW ” CANVAS BY BADDER ART

An extensive group of states or countries under a single supreme authority,

The owl is sacred to the Greek goddess of learning, Athena and is even depicted on some Greco-Roman currency as asymbol of status, intelligence and of course, wealth.

In ancient Egyptian, Celtic, and Hindu cultures the symbolic meaning of owl revolved around guardianship of the underworlds, and a protection of the dead.

In this light the owl was ruler of the night and seer of souls. A misunderstanding of this necessary relationship gave the owl some negative associations with death.

It should be clear that the owl was honored as the keeper of spirits who had passed from one plane to another. Often myth indicates the owl accompanying a spirit to the underworld – winging it’s newly freed soul from the physical world into the realm of spirit.

Being aware of the owl’s symbolic meanings is a good way to connect with this fascinating creatures, and also become more in-tune with the owl’s wisdom.

SPIDER SKULL MURAL WALL FOR SECRET PROJECT ROBOT

DEUCE  7 MINIAPOLIS ARTIST LET BADDER  CREATE AND AMAZING MURAL FOR SECRET PROJECT ROBOT GALLERY , BROOKLYN NY 2010

Secret Project Robot offers dynamic and challenging programming while supporting the efforts of those interested in exploring art in a broader social context.  The openings and events at Secret Project Robot are inclusive and overlap various media practices. Exhibitions will often include a musical counterpart, a performance or other elements that add to a more diverse appreciation of the arts for a diverse range of visitors.

At Secret Project Robot we stress the importance of the art-party as a way to create an inclusive and tangible environment.  We push every event beyond proscribed norms , and compel visitors to explore art while also creating a space for them to interact and have a conversation-the idea is that art should be a platform for a continuos dialogue and a gallery should be a place that promotes this in a fun, new and interesting way.

Secret Project Robot is a place where art is taken seriously in so far as it helps create a world outside of bureaucracy and the mundane and hopefully inspires people to realize that culture can be interpreted through a multiplicity of simultaneously correct and changing view points.

MEDITATION BUDDHA MURAL FOR LAUGHING LOTUS YOGA STUDIO IN BROOKLYN

Meditation is a word that has come to be used loosely and inaccurately in the modern world. That is why there is so much confusion about how to practice it. Some people use the word meditate when they mean thinking or contemplating; others use it to refer to daydreaming or fantasizing. However, meditation (dhyana) is not any of these.

Meditation is a precise technique for resting the mind and attaining a state of consciousness that is totally different from the normal waking state. It is the means for fathoming all the levels of ourselves and finally experiencing the center of consciousness within. Meditation is not a part of any religion; it is a science, which means that the process of meditation follows a particular order, has definite principles, and produces results that can be verified.

In meditation, the mind is clear, relaxed, and inwardly focused. When you meditate, you are fully awake and alert, but your mind is not focused on the external world or on the events taking place around you. Meditation requires an inner state that is still and one-pointed so that the mind becomes silent. When the mind is silent and no longer distracts you, meditation deepens.

LAUGHING LOTUS YOGA CENTER is a diverse
community of yogis, deeply committed to a path of love in action.

“JAPANESE SAMURAI DRAGON BADDER MASK “

Samurai

()

were the military nobility of medieval and early-modern Japan.

In Japanese, they are usually referred to as bushi (武士, [bu.ɕi]) or buke (武家). According to translator William Scott Wilson: “In Chinese, the character 侍 was originally a verb meaning to wait upon or accompany persons in the upper ranks of society, and this is also true of the original term in Japanese, saburau. In both countries the terms were nominalized to mean “those who serve in close attendance to the nobility”, the pronunciation in Japanese changing to saburai. According to Wilson, an early reference to the word “samurai” appears in the Kokin Wakashū (905–914), the first imperial anthology of poems, completed in the first part of the 10th century.

By the end of the 12th century, samurai became almost entirely synonymous with bushi, and the word was closely associated with the middle and upper echelons of the warrior class. The samurai followed a set of rules that came to be known as bushidō. While the samurai numbered less than 10% of Japan’s population,their teachings can still be found today in both everyday life and in modern Japanese martial arts.

DRAGON

Japanese dragon symbols are very similar to Chinese dragons except the Japanese dragon has only three toes or claws while the royal Chinese dragon has five claws and the common dragon has four.

here are two basic types of Japanese dragons. One is found in the sky or clouds. The other is found in bodies of water or rain. Dragons are believed to control rain, fire and the earth.

It’s believed that the dragon originated in Japan with only three toes and as it migrated North, it gained another toe. It finally traveled far north where it received its fifth and final additional toe or claw.

In the Japanese language there are quite a few words for dragons. Two of the most popular words are ryu and tatsu, the latter is taken from an old Japanese dialect which translates in English to mean “sign of the dragon”. Kanji is modern Japanese for dragon.

The most familiar type of Japanese dragon is the Tatsu or Ryu, which is a descendant of a primitive three-toed variety of Chinese dragon. Japanese dragons are traditionally associated more with the sea than rain. This is because Japan is less vulnerable to drought-related disasters as compared to China. Therefore they didn’t feel the same need to pray to rain-releasing dragons.

The Ryu originated from Buddhist religion and is one of the four divine beasts from Japanese mythology (the other three being the phoenix, turtle and kirin. Kirin is the Japanese unicorn). It is frequently the emblem of the Emperor or the hero.

The Ryu rules water. There is a story of how Ryu (or Ryu-jin, the most well-known dragon in Japanese legend) summons a storm by howls, and then transforms into a tornado. The tornado is called “Tatsu-maki” in Japanese. Tatsu is the kanji (Japanese calligraphy) meaning “dragon”. Maki means “roll”

BADDER MURAL FOR NEW YORK RESTAORATION PROJECT

New York Restoration Project (NYRP)
 Overview
New York Restoration Project (NYRP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to reclaiming
And restoring New York City parks, community gardens and open space. In partnership with
The City of New York, NYRP is also leading MillionTreesNYC – an initiative to plant and care
For one million new trees throughout New York City’s five boroughs by 2017.
Since the organization’s founding by Bette Midler in 1995, NYRP has achieved dramatically
Results by investing in the greening and beautification of underserved communities throughout
New York City. Working in partnership with the New York City Department of Parks &
Recreation, NYRP staff, AmeriCorps members, and community and corporate volunteers have
Planted hundreds of thousands of trees, shrubs and flowers to support the restoration of public
Parks and community gardens; restored and help maintain six New York City parks; and
Removed more than 2,000 tons of garbage from the City’s green spaces. In 1999, Midler and
NYRP saved 114 community gardens from commercial development and established the New
York Garden Trust to ensure NYRP’s precious plots of land remain public gardens in
Perpetuity.
NYRP is also responsible for transforming an illegal dumping ground along the Harlem River
Into the five-acre Swindler Cove Park and building the adjacent Peter Jay Sharp Boathouse-
The first floating boathouse on the river in over 100 years. At Swindler Cover Park and in
NYRP’s community gardens, New Yorkers are being introduced every day to the importance
of having green space and respecting nature in urban neighborhoods. In fact, NYRP’s
Environmental educational programs and community events currently serve thousands of New
York City youth, families and educators.
                                                                                                                                                                       Bette Midler, Founder
Since 1995, the award-winning actress and singer has been a tireless, passionate and influential advocate for New York City’s most neglected and forgotten spaces and, as such, has been responsible for rescuing parks and scores of community gardens in underserved neighborhoods throughout the city’s five boroughs. Bette’s initial and ultimate visions for New York Restoration Project (NYRP) and its role in the greening of New York City continue to steer NYRP in both inspiration and execution at every level of the organization.
Bette is NYRP’s principal fundraiser and primary cultivator of donors, corporate partners and members – tirelessly rolling up her sleeves and getting involved in NYRP’s many events, projects and programs. She is the main draw at NYRP’s annual Spring Picnic and Hulaween gala benefits, where her performances and commentary are anxiously anticipated each year, raising almost $3 million annually to support the organization’s efforts. She also leads selective donor tours of project sites, opens newly restored community gardens and – every year – generously donates to NYRP and its many programs.
Bette has received many honors for her critical work and leadership in protecting and restoring some of New York City’s most vital green spaces, including the 2002 Governor’s Award for Parks and Preservation. In 2005, she was made an honorary member of the American Society of Landscape Architects and, in 2008, she received the National Audubon Society’s Rachel Carson Award, the nation’s premier recognition of women who have demonstrated great leadership and commitment to conservation.
