Israel philately stamp from Nederland

Remedios Varo


This is the hermit. He is now beyond normal time and space; his body is made up of two triangles, one upright and one inverted, which form a six-pointed star, symbol of time and space in ancient esoteric teachings. Inside his open chest there is a yin-yang symbol representing inner harmony. This is the most beautiful symbol of all (at least I think so), for it is enclosed in a circle, and has come to signify equilibrium.

Remedios Varo (1908 - 1963) was a Spanish-Mexican surrealist painter. 

High above the Arab leadership

My son in law, Jason, sent me a photo of a strange coincidence:

Representatives of the Arab states met in Damascus for the annual Arab Summit, which began on March 29th 2008, to discuss relations between the states. As they spoke, a giant 6-pointed star stood high above their heads.
