Yes. But it looks like the painter of the picture I posted doesn't seem to have a special place in mind when it comes to imagining a landscape.

See again, please:

Is there a landscape?

Maybe a different landscape happens for each person - I see a camel and a man in a turban, Otto.

Perhaps after I wake up again, I will see something else.

Unless......this is another one of your studies, Otto. In which case, you should start with asking yourself whether I [encode] may have planned for that in advance...

...and what is the significance of the camel.?.I hear myself ask...lol...

I simply had to share this monument to sculpture.

Thefigure itself is 35feet tall. Inside there are rooms, a fountain once issued from its hand. And whilst the fireplace in its head would burn smoke would issue from its nose.
It think it is all the more remarkable because of its age.The complicated iconography of the garden is embodied in the brooding statue of "Appennino" (1579-1580), a colossal sculpture by Giambologna, which originally seemed to emerge from the vaulted rockwork niche that once surrounded him. Multiple grottoes with water-driven automata, a water organ, surprise jets that drenched visitors' finery when the fontanieri opened secret spigots, offered striking juxtapositions of Art with imitations of rugged Nature

Take a look at the internal structure here.

Once an interaction took place I was reminded of the science fiction Tautological Singularity of Kooky Kurzweil...and his/the epochs...

Meno appears to have it down to five epochs...Or perhaps the previous interaction was the sixth epoch...

"Such a translucent basin, sculpted pearl!
Argentic ripples are added on it by the quiet dew
And its liquid silver goes over the daisies, melted, and even purer.
Hard and soft are so close, that it would be hard to distinguish
liquid and solid, marble and water. Which one is running?
Don't you see how water overflows the borders
and the warned drains are here against it?
They are like the lover who in vain
tries to hide his tears from his beloved." ― by courtesy of Wikipedia

Awesome Nature's ice sculptor carved by sea water and polar winds. Unbelievable! Leaves me breathless. Would you have imagined it?
Well, some would of course.


Steven Kazlowski....

He said: 'There's a lot of shapes you don't normally see in nature. It's like they had been crafted by a master carver.

'The icebergs break off glaciers and some form these tubular icebergs that go for miles.



"MEN ARGUE - NATURE ACTS! VOLTAIRE.
"It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure."
Joseph Campbell

"In the woods, we return to reason and faith. There I feel nothing can befall me in life, - no disgrace, no calamity, (leaving me my eyes,) which nature cannot repair. Standing on the bare ground, - my head bathed by the blithe air, and uplifted into infinite space, - all mean egotism vanishes. I become a transparent eye-ball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part or particle of God."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

"No way of thinking or doing, however ancient, can be trusted without proof. What everybody echoes or in silence passes by as true today may turn out to be falsehood tomorrow, mere smoke of opinion, which some had trusted for a cloud that would sprinkle fertilizing rain on their fields."
Thoreau

The fact that that statue is actually the facade to a building behind it, is very cool indeed.

Lotus Temple

Image

"The Lotus Temple is a Bahá'í House of Worship in New Delhi consisting of 27 structures resembling petals of the lotus flower that open onto a central hall around 40m high."

Image

"This particular building really has no competitors. Some places of worship are alike many others, but not this one. It has nine sides, nine doors, and can accommodate 2,500 people. Its surface is made of white marble from Mount Pentelicus in Greece, the same marble used to build the Parthenon! Amazing right?"

Now this is what I think of when I hear the word ‘castle’ ..the Castle of the Teutonic Order aka Malbork Castle is a 13th century Gothic brick castle and the largest in the world with a surface area of over 51 acres, it was built by knights of the Teutonic Order and is situated in Malbork, Poland.

Comparable with the Marienburg (now: Marlbork Castle): a castle (Wasserburg) built in the typical architectural style of the German Order (a.k.a.: Teutonic Order). This castle belongs to Lithuania today:
