LINGAM EGG – OSTRICH EGG

4 LINGAM EGG – OSTRICH EGG

(on an illuminated base)


We used the ostrich or goose egg to convey the message of the contents of our cultural heritage.
The Lingam egg is uniquely decorated. The eggshell is perforated using a drill, which allows for a special way of decorating blown eggs.
The Lingam egg incorporates the situla culture, featuring the ceremonial Venetian horse below the image of an eagle and the culture of Idrija lace with innovative energetic shapes and artistic elements of the Idrija lynx.
With additional lighting, the elaborate lacelike designs on the eggshells come to life in their entirety.
“Using the horse of peace or the spiritual horse taken from the renowned Situla from Vače, I reawaken the prehistoric culture of Slovenians – the culture of Veneti. Within it, I have illustrated the spirituality of mankind.”
This sculpture is set at various locations, including the World Trade Centre in Ljubljana, the Mestni trg Square in Slovenj Gradec, the United Nations Palace in Geneva, the Nebug complex in Sochi by the Black Sea and the former Parliament in Jerusalem.
Besides the horse, the eagle GARUDA also appears on the Lingam egg as the symbol of spirituality, representing the divine creation of human development from the animal to the divine spirit and its cosmic breadth ...

GLASS PICTURE GOLDEN LIPIZZANER


The Lipizzan horse is a spiritual, ballet horse, also distinguished by the power that this horse possesses.
The Lipizzaner is a native breed of hot-tempered horses, which are the oldest in the world. Our ancestors developed the breed by crossing the native Karst breed with noble Arabic and Spanish stallions.
THE WHITE HORSE is the symbol of symbols, which represents to Slovenians as well as to the European and World cultural heritage a living example of the spirituality and excellent animal power of man.
The Lipizzan horse is associated with the development of man – from animal nature to divine knowledge, from BLACK to divine WHITE.
The Lipizzan horse is born black and turns white as it grows older. Such a transformation represents the transformation of the human, animal nature into the divine knowledge of cosmic human values.
Our ancestors believed the white horse to be God Himself...
They taught it to stand on two legs and use its raised third leg for balance. This pose is supposed to represent the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, the HOLY TRINITY or TRIGLAV (three heads). The LIPIZZAN HORSE is thus considered a spiritual horse and also a working horse.
In the past, many ancient parishes in the area of the settlement of Slovenian people in Central Europe were dedicated to St. George on a WHITE HORSE (a symbol of early Christianity). St. George on a white horse kills the dragon, which implies that man must conquer his EGO during his lifetime. He must become God in the divine creation of the unified cosmic consciousness.
Archduke Charles, ruler of Inner Austria (Carantania), established a stud farm at Lipica in the Karst area in 1580. One of the most precious horses he brought there was the Andalusian stallion named Pluta.
The basic breed of horses was the domestic ancient white horse, which was persistent, strong and had a high gait. This breed was then crossed with the Spanish and Arabic, particularly the Iberian, but also with the Neapolitan and Polesine.
The stud farm reached the peak of its development under the rule of the Emperor Charles VI and the daughter of the Empress Maria Theresa. The famous Spanish Riding School was established in Vienna in 1752 when the Lipizzan horse first appeared. The Lipizzaner became a noble and military horse.
The Lipizzaner is impossible to describe – when it appears, it enchants with its beauty, intelligence, its freedom and is like a divine horse. That is exactly what our ancestors tried to communicate to their descendants. This horse carries a deeper meaning that can help man to develop and acquire knowledge of himself, to discover the goodness and beauty in his spirituality for he is the UNIVERSE.
The home of the Lipizzan is the village of LIPICA. Its name is derived from the ancient symbol of the Slovenian people – the linden tree (lipa), which also represents everything BEAUTIFUL or WHITE.

GRAPHIC LIPICANEC IN A DRESS

10 GRAPHIC "LIPICANEC IN A DRESS"

(46cm x 36cm, deep wooden frame with glass)


In cooperation with recognized Italian painter, Sergio Pausig, the Kogoj’s “Lipicanec” achieved on its beauty, nobility and value.
We present you two new graphics on which the artist and painter Sergio Pausig enriched theimage of Kogoj’s “Lipicanec”. Classicism in pure whiteness, which Kogoj puts in his byzantine jewelry in gold, is a relaxation. Pausig does the rest... His paintings are not only perfect because of carnal plants but also because of dream animals, which are drowning in this vegetation. On the Kogoj’s whitenesses are laid, one above the other, like gentle coating, youthful emotions in pastel colors.
