Keeping track of the kites

The danger of the kite on the veste coburg is now gone. The now ended coarse special exhibition "dragon’s blood and heroic courage led back to the time when dragons were still corporeal – people really believed in their physical existence – or symbolic existential threat to mankind. It took heroes with superhuman strength and then increasingly the active intervention of the christian god to put them to death. – go away blob with all the cuddly dragons and downright godly guardian animals of today, they are a complete reinterpretation of the ancient motive. We don’t have to be against them; all the fantasy movies and books today, they’re just wonderful. What could be seen on the veste for a quarter of a year – some details in the graphics were not exactly youth-friendly in their cruelty and in the depiction of fear and terror.

A book, a book

An exhibition, especially when it is as lively and imaginative as the curator stephanie knoll, who is responsible for the graphic collection at the veste, has managed to make it, is one thing. A book is something else, above all something lasting. To accompany the dragon’s blood exhibition, the publishing house schnell + steiner, with the help of the niederfullbacher stiftung, has published a rough illustrated book. The works of art on display at the veste are illustrated in high-quality print and explained in detail, their motifs interpreted and their historical background explained.

This means that anyone who visited the exhibition and was exhausted after looking at three or four of these extremely detailed works by durer (1471 – 1528), the effective dutch copper engraver hendrick goltzius (1558 – 1617), the fantastic cranach and all the other great masters – which is no wonder in view of the often teeming, hundreds of pages of drawings, drawings, drawings, drawings, drawings, which is not at all surprising in view of the often teeming, almost hundred-page picture stories on a few square centimeters – who can now penetrate this medium, which has basically become foreign to us today, sitting on the sofa and take his time discovering the fantastic stories. After all, it’s not "only" about to enjoy art.

Meadows and perennial plants have found their way into many gardens. In the last few days of summer, gardeners were enchanted by the concentrated blooms of asters, primroses and stonecrops in their flowerbeds. However, the flowering plants are now running low at the end of autumn.

What to do now? Information on this can be obtained from the gardening advisory service of the district office.

Not all plants remain attractive over winter. Therefore, in late autumn, all the perennials in the beds should be cut off at ground level and the beds "winterized make? The district’s horticulture and land conservation department with district garden advisor guntram ulsamer says: "no! This would have a negative effect on the appearance of the flowerbeds, which can look very attractive especially in frosty weather. In addition, the stalks and shoots provide shelter for bees and bumblebees and provide an important overwintering resource."
