Monster Triplets Inhabit the Lobster Nebula

That is NCG 6357, also sometimes called the Lobster Nebula. It’s a massive star-forming cloud around 8000 light years away, located in the constellation of Scorpius. The picture was taken by the amazing VISTA (Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy), located in Paranal, Chile.

We are each free to believe what we want, and it’s my view that the simplest explanation is there is no god. No one created the universe, and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realization: There is probably no heaven and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe, and for that, I am extremely grateful.

Bosch, Hieronymus

The Garden of Earthly Delight (Detail, right wing)

c. 1504

Oil on panel

Museo del Prado, Madrid

___

This painting was probably made for the private enjoyment of a noble family. It is named for the luscious garden in the central panel, which is filled with cavorting nudes and giant birds and fruits. The triptych depicts the history of the world and the progression of sin. Beginning on the outside shutters with the creation of the world, the story progresses from Adam and Eve and original sin on the left panel to the torments of hell, a dark, icy, yet fiery nightmarish vision, on the right.

Leonid Afremov tried different techniques during his career, but he especially fell in love with painting with oil and palette-knife. Every artwork is the result of long painting process; every canvas is born during the creative search; every painting is full of his inner world. Each of his paintings brings different moods, colors and emotions. Leonid Afremov just like those well-known artists, Da Vinci, Picasso, and Monet loves to express the beauty, harmony and spirit of this world in his paintings. With his heart completely open to art, he enjoys creating inspired and beautiful paintings from the bottom of his soul. Each of his artworks reflects his feelings, sensitivity, passion, and the music from his soul. True art is alive and inspired by humanity. “I believe that art helps us to be free from aggression and depression”, he said.
