Diego Rivera and other Mexican muralists painted art in public places so that they could reach the general public with their views?
I would say it is true.
Is the "Mexican Knife" in "Secret Fighting Arts Of The World" to any extent true?
I'm pretty sure that the book is entirely false but i'm wondering if the theres any truth that your fingers can have the strength to inflict that devastating power. Thank You!
I have always been very skeptical of that book.
There may be certain people out there with obscure knowledge.
One guy with knowledge of unknown self defense and Mongolian grappling is Charles Nelson.
He taught everyone from small female college students to black belts to cops in NYC.
He passed in 2005 IIRC.
One of his students has posted about 20 films of him on you tube. Enjoy them now before they get taken down. Tim Larkin, Erik Paulson, and Tony Blauer are on you tube. They have 'secret" techniques, if you will.
is there a name for these mexican looking masks example by nikko hurtado?
i think they are awesome and i just really want to know if there is a name for them. i've seen it as the inspiration for several pieces of art.
Here is an example by nikko hurtado http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=viewImage&friendID=19346528&albumID=777317&imageID=31413646
(i may even be wrong about the mexican part they just have a mexican feel to me)
I love his artwork.It's like nothing I've ever seen.
I know he refers too them as "Day of the Dead masks" I am not sure what they are truly called, but that's what he calls them. I hope this helped at least a little=)
What is the meaning behind Diego Rivera's Flower Day art painting?
I know there is some iconography and meaning to the painting, but I just cant figure it out. WHat do the flowers mean? who is the woman carrying the flowers? Who are the people on their knees? What does everything mean?
I know it conveys a message about the Mexican Revolution which had occured recently but what about it does it say?
Diego Rivera loved to portray the heritage of the Mexican people in their common lives and labor, the girl is a flower vendor selling "Calla Lilly's". Diego Riveras wife and passion was Frieda Kahlo, a Mexican woman artist with fame to equal and some say surpass Rivera himself. The Calla Lilly is a sensual flower that is "self fruiting" I believe it represents the female genitalia, but more importantly it represents Frieda even though she is not present in body in the picture, Frieda was multi faceted and bi sexual and I believe this is why the beautiful Calla Lilly bears so much reference in his works. This is due to researching the lives of both Diego Rivera and Frieda Kahlo. Hope that helps!
What is the impact of the Mexican culture on the US?
Im trying to look for information about the contributions of the mexican people in the US. such as sports, military, the impact of the food in this country, fine arts language. to mention some.
thanks a lot
I will appreciate the help
The mexicans have blended perfectly with anglo-saxon europeans to create a new a vibrant culture. Mexicans have risen to every office in American government except the White House and it is of course just a matter of time until one gets elected. Mexican food is as much a part of our cuisine as bacon and eggs. Without mexican contributions to our unique american culture the U. S. Would be a much poorer country.
