Adolf Hitler was an artist—a modern artist, at that—and Nazism was a movement shaped by his aesthetic sensibility. Cosmopolitan Vienna incubated his peculiar genius as well as his hideous ideas. These views have been in the air recently, and a trenchant scholarly exhibition at the Williams College Museum of Art, in Williamstown, Massachusetts—”Prelude to a Nightmare: Art, Politics, and Hitler’s Early Years in Vienna 1906-1913″—advances them. The show’s curator, Deborah Rothschild, was inspired by “Hitler’s Vienna: A Dictator’s Apprenticeship,” by Brigitte Hamann (1999). A forthcoming book, “Hitler and the Power of Aesthetics,” by Frederic Spotts, promises an interpretation of Hitler as “a perverted artist.” Earlier this year, a show at the Jewish Museum, in New York, “Mirroring Evil: Nazi Imagery/Recent Art,” featured mediocre conceptual work that addressed the Third Reich with lamebrained allusions to commerce and sex. By trial and error, a special analysis is in progress. It won’t alter our moral and political judgments of Hitler, whose crimes remain immeasurable, but it sure shakes up conventional accounts of modern art.
Hanuman (/ˈhʌnʊˌmɑːn, ˈhɑːnʊ–, ˌhʌnʊˈmɑːn, ˌhɑːnʊ–/; Hanumān in IAST) is an ardent devotee of Rama. He is one of the central figures in the Hindu epic Ramayana and its various versions. As one of the Chiranjivi, he is also mentioned in several other texts, including the Mahabharata, the various Puranas and some Jain texts. Hanuman participated in Rama’s war against the demon king Ravana. Several later texts also present him as an incarnation of Shiva. He is the son of Anjana and Kesari and is also described as the son of the wind-god Pawan, who according to several stories, played a role in his birth.
Karuppu Sami is one of the regional Tamil male deities popular among the rural social groups of Tamil Nadu and parts of Kerala. He is one of the 21 associate folk-deities of Ayyanar and is hence one of the so-called Kaval Deivams of the Tamils.Karuppu Sami temple is mostly found in the outskirts of the Village. Usually, the whole village contributes to the maintenance of the temple. These temples do not have traditional Gopurams and have large statues of Gods with large eyes, holding weapons like bow and arrow, swords, aruval and others protective weapons. There will also be statues of 7 Kannimaar goddesses (7 virgins) and animals, often a hunting dog, a lion and horse.
