Street artist Aida Miro (@aidamiro) painted this vibrant Pink Ganesh, the elephant-headed Hindu God of Beginnings, back in November of 2021, but I  saw it for the first time on May14th and was so happy  find it untagged and looking like it was freshly painted!

According to this source, “Lord Ganesha clears all obstacles and paves the way for us to move forward in life. The large elephant head of Lord Ganesha symbolizes wisdom, understanding, and a discriminating intellect that one must possess to attain perfection in life.” Miro has also added the phrase “Rise By Lifting Others.” Sweet.

The Mural is Located in NYC’s East Village, on Sixth Street Just East of First Avenue (Next to a Duncan Donuts).

Modern Art Monday Presents: Hans Holbein, Terminus, Device of Erasmus

In this painting, Terminus, Device of Erasmus (1532) Hans Holbein the Younger combined Erasmus‘s portrait with his emblem, providing Terminus with Erasmus’s facial features. Seen through a stone opening, Erasmus/Terminus gazes across a featureless landscape. The golden disk behind his head represents divine radiance, underscoring the Christian meaning of the emblem for Erasmus: steadfast character and unwavering faith. This rare painting of a persona emblem by Holbein was probably intended to delight an admirer rather than to gratify Erasmus himself.  Concedo nvlli means “I yield no ground.”
