    Bratislava is as far from Moscow as Liverpool, NY from Orlando, FL
    and Ukraine is between Slovak and Russia

    I am among many, many Americans, completely ignorant of any country that is East of our Atlantic shore. :)
    I also do not speak Russian.

    I know how to Google translate.

    But my mother is Russian, and I know a few phrases, not worth repeating.

    Wow! Liverpool is quite far from DisneyWorld! Barbara and I went there, and it was a 49 minute airplane ride.

    How many minutes is that in metric?

    But you're even farther.

    Thanks!

    Here is one that is only partially mine. I discovered the original, scanned at 1 bit per pixel, too small for just about anything. There is no copyright; I offer the Xara version freely as a gift to the community.

    For anyone who is into the origins of symbology, this piece, very sdimilar to the eye in a pyramid on the back of U.S. currency, is an early Christian symbol, not a demonish one as suggested by the superstitious.

    The eye is the all-seeing eye of God. The pyramid is actually a triangle representing the 3 expressions of God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.


    I'm not inclined to revel or attach any super significance to symbols, precisely because they are symbols, representations, icons of something that is often intangible.

    Anyhow, I like this particular, woodcuttish version, as a nice design.

    Please help yourself.

    My Best,

    Gary

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    Default I've expanded!

    I asked The Admin whether I could start a blog on tg.

    She said no.

    So instead, when I have content to share, I'll post it on a new Xara Art Gallery of mine, along with the piece.

    If I get high score for most hits, Kate tells me I'll get a prize.

    I'm kidding: She told me it I get any more thousands of hits, I'll get to pay the host bill monthly.

    I'm lying about most things above.

    Cheers!

    Gary

    I did this at about the same time I wrote the book on Xara. One was published and I gave away the XAR drawing, and this one I didn't. It's almost entirely Extruded I later traced off so I could export it and stuff.
