a fantastic read
May I ask, who is the featured artwork by?
To which artwork are you referring? All of the pics are taken from various internet sites
Well, in this article there is only one, besides the photograph – the one that illustrates the Song of Songs.
It is a web pic of a painting by He Qi, a Chinese artist, who paints Biblical themes, and found on the site: http://sacramentohomeless.blogspot.com/2011/05/sex-lies-and-exegesis.html
You can find a gallery of the artist’s work at http://www.heqigallery.com/shop/Gallery_OT_A.html
I found it by doing a google image search for “song of solomon”
Thank you so much. I tried doing the same and got the impression that, despite being one of the most famous texts of humankind, there are very few artworks depicting it. Am I wrong?
Unfortunately, you are right – there are few works of art that depict the Song of Solomon and the balance of what it has to say about male/female relationships.
IMO, the reason for this, is that the Song has been allegorized and its meaning obscured. My article on “Religion and the Corruption of Eroticism” has a lot more information on how and why this happened.
Superb blog post, I have book marked this internet site so ideally I’ll see much more on this subject in the foreseeable future!
You got great points there, that’s why I always love checking out your blog.
Couldnt agree more with that, very attractive article
