             I always liked making things. When I was little I would make figures from salt and dough, or eggs, or rolls of toilet paper or anything I could find.

            I was never as created as to invent my own ideas but I was always inspired by others. I liked to copy their work to get some practice or to alter their ideas to make it more suitable to my taste.

          Some time ago I decided to learn some pottery and I enrolled into pottery classes. I look in the Internet for some inspiration and I was stunned how many magnificent pictures I have found. So many ideas and tips on how to make your own clay art. I started to make my own last week.

           Additionally, soon I will be redecorating my house. I expect there will be some decoration ideas which I make for my house appear here.

              One of my biggest travel dream is Dubai.

I don't quite know why it has such pool on me but I have been thinking about the city for some time now. I have not read much about it yet, I will save that for before-the-trip time. It has to be a grat city, however. From the photos it is clearly visible that top architects have been allowed to build some extravagant and splendid buildings with, what I can only imagine, the newest technology.

I also think the that place, or poeple who run it, must be quite rich. Who else would be able to afford to build an island. 

I want to go and see all the things for myself :)

The Racławice Panorama

                 The Racławice Panorama is a beautiful and unforgettable oil panting by Jan Styka and Wojciech Kossak. It took one year to paint it. The work depicts a very important event in Polish history: the Battle of Racławice during the Kosciuszko Uprising

The painting is enormous (15x114 meters) and presented in a circular fashion with the viewer placed in the center, so you can turn around and take the whole painting in. You can also come closer and see every scene closer looking at details. And there are very many of them. 

The coolest thing about the paining is the usage of perspective. Where the painting ends real stuff begin. Trees, sand and grass seem to leap out of the work, and sometimes it is hard to notice where the painting ends and the real world begins.

The museum offers an audio tour, which explains certain scenes from the painting.

The panorama is located in Wrocław in a very nice, round building. I recommend it to anyone. In a world of 3D cinema and computer games it is very refreshing to see that something so beautiful was created with human hands without anything more but pure talent.

Some picks :)

Alice in Wonderland

                Who doesn't know "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll.

We either read the book, seen a movie (there is a wide variety to choose from), or encounter something which was refering to it (like "Donnie Darko", "The Thursday Next series" or "Matrix" for example).

Alice is playing in her garden when she suddenly sees a white rabbit. But it's no ordinary rabbit. He can talk and he is carrying a big pocket watch, which intrigues Alice so much that she decides to run after him. She has no idea that then yet that is will be the biggest adventure in her life :) And she takes us with her.
