THE WORLD OF ANGELS

Some years ago I concerned myself with the existence of angels as numinious beings standing above any religious denominations.
These three paintings are the result of my meditation and imagination.

They are the male materialisation of the idea of CATHARSIS, COGNITION and of THE ESCORT OF DEATH.

TERRIBLE NEWS




Iranian teens executed for homosexuality
Christopher Curtis, PlanetOut Network
published Thursday, July 21, 2005

Iran publicly executed two teenagers on Tuesday accusing them of raping a 13-year-old boy and having gay sex, according to Iran's ISNA news agency.

The two teenagers were hanged in Edalat (Justice) Square in Mashhad, Iran's second-largest city. They were only identified by their initials, M.A. and A.M.

Before their execution, the teenagers were held in prison for 14 months and lashed 228 times.

Ruhollah Rezazadeh, the lawyer for the youngest teenager, appealed to Tehran's Supreme Court, saying his client was too young to be executed, but the court ordered him hanged.

While the teens admitted to having sex with each other, the London-based gay human rights group OutRage! believes the admissions were coerced under torture.

OutRage! also doubts that the 13-year-old was raped, noting that the crime was not mentioned by some key news agencies. The organization believes the alleged rape to be either a trumped-up charge or, it suggests, the 13-year-old was a willing participant.

"This is just the latest barbarity by the Islamo-fascists in Iran," said OutRage! spokesperson Peter Tatchell.

"The entire country is a gigantic prison, with Islamic rule sustained by detention without trial, torture and state-sanctioned murder," Tatchell said.

Iran enforces Islamic Sharia law, which demands the death penalty for gay sex. Under the Iranian penal code, girls as young as nine and boys as young as 15 can be executed.

Members of Iran's parliament hailing from the northeastern city of Mashad complained Wednesday about news coverage of the deaths.

"Instead of paying tribute to the action of the judiciary, the media are mentioning the age of the hanged criminals and creating a commotion that harms the interests of the state," said ultraconservative deputy Ali Asgari in a quote published by Iran Focus.

"Even if certain Web sites made a reference to their age, journalists should not pursue this. These individuals were corrupt. Their sentence was carried out with the approval of the judiciary, and it served them right," he said.

TODAY IS MARCO'S BIRTHDAY


Marco Simonelli is a young Florentine poet. Since two years we are friends now. Last year in October I celebrated with him my birthday in Florence. Today is his birthday. It's a pity but I havn't had the possibility to go to visit him this time because of too much work in the hospital, so I sent to him just now my present, a funny drawing, inspirated by one of his poems which is a little persiflage about the Florentine gay life in the past.

Marco is standing between the famous Florentine poet Dante on the left and Dante's friend Cavalcanti, also a famous Florentine poet on the right side ;-) .

CARLO GIULIANI ::: THE FIRST VICTIM OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER OF PROFIT :::

Carlo was assassinated 4 years ago by the police in Genoa during a demonstration against the first G8 under the regime of Mr. Bush & Sidekicks Co., that summit conference of the government representatives of the 8 richest contries of our planet.

He was assassinated on the 20th of July 2001 ... this was the beginning of THE WAR OF THE PROFIT-MAKERS AGAINST A GLOBAL JUSTICE ...

This happened a little bit before the horror of the 11 september 2001, a little bit before there was made the assault upon Afghanistan and Iraq which was the same horror for the civilian population of these countries as everywhere...

THERE IS NO "JUSTER WAR" ... EVERY WAR IS AN ATTACK OF TERROR FOR THE CIVILIAN POPULATION... AMEN

G 8 ... AND THE " GLOBAL" MOVEMENT

Wednesday, 6 July 2005
March Against the G8
Gleneagles Hotel, Gleneagles, Perthshire
"Another World is Possible"

Assemble 12noon at Gleneagles Train Station for a march to the gates of the Gleneagles Hotel on the opening day of the G8 Summit.

The G8 countries have appointed themselves rulers of the world. This group of 8 white men have brought war, occupation, neoliberal corporate globalisation, poverty and environmental devastation.

Let Bush and Blair know- the G8 is not welcome in Scotland.

Join the global movement when it comes to Scotland to oppose the G8. Anti-war groups, trade unions, left parties, students, anti-capitalists, environmentalists and community organisations will march side by side to the gates of Gleneagles Hotel to let the G8 rulers know what we think of them. The march will be followed by a massive rally. Another world is possible.


They are G8, but we are six billion!

CASTOR AND POLLUX : THE DIOSCURI (SONS OF JOVE)

THE FIRST NUDE SESSION WITH MY NEPHEW RYAN

I take really delight in drawing my nephews! They will be my models for the next series I'll make " CASTOR AND POLLUX " , about the classical brotherly love :

"They were united by the warmest affection, and
inseparable in all their enterprises. They accompanied the
Argonautic expedition. During the voyage a storm arose, and
Orpheus prayed to the Samothracian gods, and played on his harp,
whereupon the storm ceased and stars appeared on the heads of the
brothers. From this incident, Castor and Pollux came afterwards
to be considered the patron deities of seamen and voyagers..."


But before I'll begin with the series I want to make another portrait of Ryan in the same crayon-technique as with Mike...

THE FIRST NUDE SESSION WITH MY NEPHEW MIKE

Mike doesn't seem to be timid and bashful, but he is. Probably the consequences of a trauma he has had to experience as a child and as an adulescent too, caused by his own "genitor". I hope Mike can get over these tragic occurences over the course of time so that he will come to terms with the past and he can think someday that all that horror was only a nightmare ...

I am very happy that Mike decided to act as a model for me and to pose nude for he is really handsome ... and I think that the great Michelangelo Buonarotti should have liked to draw him too ...


This drawing is dedicated to Mike's little brother Ryan who will pose for me too.
