Title: Art
Post by: misko_2083 on January 04, 2015, 07:15:19 PM
This is my home town. My brother made the stone sculpture on the left. It's standing in front of the city hall.

1371 is the year our town was founded.

Here's some more of my brother's work.
I use them as backgrounds.

Hi bitsanpcs,
Thank you bitsanpcs. He went to college for that. He's a sculptor by profession.
He can work with clay, stone, metal and wood. Stone is his main source of income.

Exquisite craftsmanship.
The tool marks are what make this human,
like the the brush strokes of a great artist.

Something that I believe will never be replicated by technology.

I agree with you. Thanks for the compliment. :) I don’t mind you calling me Croat… Serbs and Croats, it’s almost the same.
For someone abroad is very difficult to distinguish between our people, borders, who we are and what we are.

Wow!

Really nice work.  Love seeing stuff like that.  Love seeing things hand crafted instead of done by CNC machines.  Very nice!

He has to put anything he imagines on the paper and when the clients approve, he starts working.
Machines help a lot. He uses machines to get to the level where he can start using hand tools. Otherwise it would take him a lot of time. Especially in the case where he has to drill the hole through the stone 10-15cm wide. I've tried doing what my brother does - I took the hammer and a chiselt. It was tricky to guess the amount of strength to use. I was afraid not to make a mistake and damage my brother's work. When he does it it looks so easy. :)
CNC's are for mass production. This is all about the skills.

Hello!

Brings back memories for me. Remember when ASCII art was EVERYWHERE?

Back in my USAF days (the 80s), the different DOD communications centers used to send out some pretty neat stuff to each other at Christmastime - snowflakes, wreaths, and the like - all in ASCII characters. One even sent out Santa's sled and all eight reindeer harnessed together! We hung it across the wall at the shop.

Then one year, someone had to drive to a distant remote facility on Christmas Day, to retrieve what was later discovered to be a Christmas message. The stink that was raised about it all pretty much killed the concept from then on...

Hello!

Nonetheless, Misko, I apologize.

As I work more and more to expand our charitable organization from Russia into Ukraine, and parts of Eastern Europe, I work towards a better understanding of the many cultural differences - to increase my value to the charity...

Good old days. In the 80s I was just a kid. :)
I've sent an ASCII art message when I was in first year of college. The message was sent to all the computers. Whenever a message showed you had to click on OK and then it would show up again. It was kind of a loop and  no one could use any PC that was connected. :D
It was a vulnerability issue. Anyway I got away with the warning...
I feel sorry for the fellow going on a Christmas day in a remote location. It could have been just a text message saying: Merry Christmas. He would still have to go and read it. :)
Amazing sculptures by your brother, Misko!!! beautiful work and art...

Your town looks very nice too!! :)

Cheers!!
Thanks mate. I will take more photos of the town when the weather improves a bit.

No need to apologize. I think that the only way to get to know a culture is to travel. Whatever you hear on the TV, from another person  or read on the internet is someone else's story.

It's very refreshing and says lots about the outstanding community here that there is room and appreciation for someone sharing something personal like this.

Exactly. Two years in (West) Germany - and a couple of vacation trips to Russia - were both quite eye-opening experiences for me. My Russia experience was what drove me to be a partner in the founding of our charity...

Yes, indeed. It's a great community.

Yes, you have to have a fist hand experiance to really understand. You are realy a generous person and many should look up to you.
Unfortunately, super rich actors, sportsmen and singers are idols in this world. In the news and newspapers you see only stories like what did Madonna had for breakfast and what Justin Bieber did the other day. Either that or about violence. I guess if you promote violence through the movies and news you put fear into people, and fear can be powerfull tool to manipulate people.
It's good to see that there are people like you. Brings back the fate in humanity.
