The Works of Nicola Samorì

The paintings of Italian artist, Nicola Samori, are full of sensuous energy. The thirty-five year old’s style is derived from the classical paintings of early renaissance masters. With the highest degree of precession, his figures emerge from the darkness of pictorial space into the light with dramatic realism.

Samori’s methodology is one that intertwines both violence and romance, which make his paintings all the more painful: He distorts them, smears them with his hand, disfigures hem with the palette knife, paints them over, or like a torturer removes the half-dry skin of the uppermost layer of paint with a scalpel. Yet, through this destructive deconstruction, his compositions have an eery sense of beauty and elegance.

The Haunted Funeral Monument of Inez Clark

The glass-enclosed funeral monument of Inez Clarke at Chicago’s Graceland Cemetery. 6-year-old Inez Clarke was killed by lightning while on a picnic with her family. Her parents, stunned by the tragic loss, commissioned a life-sized statue of their daughter to be placed over her grave. There are tales of the statue weeping as well as claims of Inez actually moving. It is said, during violent thunderstorms, Inez vanishes from her glass box and roams around the cemetery until the storm is over.


I do not believe in ghosts, but I sure do love a good ghost story.

the weird part is that neither the cemetery nor the Chicago census has any records of an Inez Clarke, despite the grave being very much there.

HOLD UP INTERNET I’VE JUST FOUND MY NEW FAVOURITE URBAN LEGEND

the Goatman of Beltsville, Maryland (not to be confused with any other American Goatmen) has several mythical origins, but the most popular is that a mad scientist (the only kind of scientist there is) was performing SECRET EXPERIMENTS ON GOATS (as you do) when something went HORRIBLY AWRY (as it generally does), and either the scientist or his unfortunate lab assistant was transformed into a half man, half goat monstrosity that is, as any goat would be, possessed of an insatiable appetite for blood.

also, he often stalks up and down the road wielding an axe and occasionally bothering and/or murdering teenagers who are just trying to make out in the woods in peace. you know, goat stuff.

THE DARK SIDE OF DREAMS 

In the late 1960’s, photographer Arthur Tress began a series of photographs that were inspired by the dreams of children. Tress had each child he approached tell him about a prominent dream of theirs which Tress would then artistically re-create and photograph with the child as the main subject.

If you’re a fan of conspiracy theories, especially ones revolving around New World Order, then you’ll love this one. 
Denver International Airport was commissioned at 1.7 billion dollars (1989) and finished at the cost of 4.8 billion dollars (1995). Conspiracy theorist believe that there is something fishy about this airport.

The 1st thing people notice when they come by the airport is the giant blue mustang with red eyes. It was created by Luis Jimenez, who died in 2006 when the head of the Mustang fell down on his leg and severed an artery. Some people think its a tribute to the Broncos, but the statue has no symbols relating to them on it. Conspriacy theorist believe that this is the Pale Horse of Death.It doesn’t help that the runways are shaped like a Swastika.
Once inside the building, the murals are even stranger, like the gas mask wearing, sword/ AK-47 weilding man killing the dove of peace.

Magnified picture of the note on the bottom right.

Then there is this mural, which either comes before, or after the story depicted in the previous one. Everyone is giving their weapons to the German boy in the middle and it all results in peace.
Then there is this mural which shows a burning town in the back, a girl holding the Mayan Calendar which predicts death and rebirth.

Then comes the final mural. Which shows total peace and rebirth after a genocide.

Another interesting thing pointed out inside the airport is what is on the floor. 

At 1st it seems like its the symbol for Gold and Silver, but conspiracy theorist take it to mean the abbreviation for Australia Antigen (but the symbols for that is HBsAg). It has been rumored that Australia Antigen could be used in biological warfare. The symbol in the picture is also placed right before the biological warfare mural.
Don’t let me forget about the underground bunkers.
Conspiracy theories are far-fetched most of the time, but are still fun to read up on. I hope you enjoyed this one.

man, there are few stories I love more than The Denver International Airport Is Hella Terrifying. 
like, if you’re not the hub of an Illuminati conspiracy, what is wrong with everyone who designed this airport. 
(while not necessarily figuring into the larger ~conspiracy~, the Denver International Airport also features these really fabulous suitcase gargoyles.)

You are greeted at the airport by Mustang, by New Mexico artist Luis Jiménez, was one of the earliest public art commissions for Denver International Airport in 1993. Standing at 32 feet tall and weighing 9,000 pounds "Mustang" is a blue cast-fiberglass sculpture with red shining eyes. Jiménez died in 2006 while creating the sculpture when the head of it fell on him and severed an artery in his leg.

Then comes the final mural. Which shows total peace and rebirth after a genocide.

The final mural is oddly reminiscent of the Garden of Eden, the world now lives in peace after the horrific events that have taken place. All the murals, when viewed in sequence, depict a massive genocide followed by the formation of a now less-populated, harmonious new world.

Another interesting thing pointed out inside the airport is what is on the floor. 

At a glance, AU AG would logically be the symbols for gold and silver. But that meaning is called into question when you find out that one of the founders of the airport also discovered a new, deadly strain of hepatitis known as Australia Antigen, also called AUAG. It has been rumored that AUAG could be a potent weapon in biological warfare. This symbol rests on the ground directly in front of the biological warfare mural.
