Old head, new header


Thought I'd jazz up the image a little.

On the left, the US capitol building in cherry blossom spring time. An image rather more optimistic than I usually feel.

In the middle, a modern mesomorphic version of the god Eros; the usual "putti" style images of Cupid and his bow make him far far less mighty than he actually is.


And on the right, the ancient church of Holy Wisdom, once the largest in the world, in what was once Constantinople, now Istanbul. The Virgin in the apse is from the original, the Arabic shield on the lower right from its four+ centuries as a mosque. Since Ataturk, it has been a museum.

I'm all for the occasional refresh, but the image for Eros looks as though his genitals have been put through a wringer-type washer several times.

Well, he is the god of erotic love. Maybe it got that way from overuse...
