Ancient Worlds Teachings from Leonardo da Vinci's Leda with Swan

by Nataša Pantović

During 1505-1510, in Florence, Leonardo da Vinci paints his Leda with the Swan, with the motif of a natural landscape untouched by a human hand, depicting Leda and her lover, the Swan, Zeus disguised, the father of the s.

I was surprised to see the same Leda in Leonardo’s Madonna of the Rocks as a mystical metaphor for Mary.

Playing with our subconscious and using his art to awaken deep emotions, painting with contrasting colors, this genius indirectly tells us where our attraction comes from, and what is our  connecting with, why is Light so important for us...

Leda as Venus and our Concept of Beauty

Leda has exaggerated curves, as antique statues of Venus had, linking with our subconscious concept of love, a perfect youthful face, with a long pointed nose and no eyebrows, no wrinkles, totally symmetrical, surrounded with gold and sparkles, the body that shines with light, pointing at her children, hatching from eggs.

The original of the painting is lost, probably deliberately destroyed, and was last recorded in the French royal Court in 1625. However the picture is known from many copies, of which the earliest is probably the Spiridon Leda, now in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

The same Leda was depicted in Leonardo’s symbolism as metaphors for Mary.

A perfect face far too young to be a mother, removed from all the shades of childbirth or motherhood suffering, with the hair-style that you find only in a carefully straightened, with lots of trouble contained curly hair, surely never used in a “staple” condition of Jesus’ birth, with a chubby, happy, content, over-sized baby, awakening “oh, how sweeet” emotional reaction within us, with no “suffering” faces of all ages to remind us that Life is a Struggle.

This painting is known as Madonna of the Rocks. The earlier version is in The Louvre in Paris and the latter one is in the National Gallery, in London. Both are nearly 2 meters high and painted in oils on wooden panel.

Age of Enlightenment in Venice and Sandro Botticelli’s Venus

Coming from the same city Venice, just a bit earlier (1445 – 1510) we find Sandro Botticelli’s Venus equally entrancing. Some years back, even though this was not my conscious intention, when I visited the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, I just could not get out of the room of where the Botticelli’s Venus was and even though I consciously wished to pay respect to other Masters within the same Gallery, I had to return to silence and divine expansion experienced watching Venus’s adventures.

“For primitive man… His country is neither a geographical nor a political entity. It is that territory which contains his mythology, his religion, all his thinking and feeling in so far as he is unconscious of these functions… Primitive man is un-psychological. Psychic happenings take place outside him in an objective way. Even the things he dreams about are real to him…”

Jung, Lecture, Archaic Man, Collected Works, Civilization in Transition

Whether Christians, Muslims or Hindus, Taoist, Jews, Atheists or Buddhists, our scientists, applied psychologists and consciousness researchers, follow their inner-most drive for goodness as their soul quest, no matter what they have chosen as their personal growth system. While in Malta I was graced to meet some most amazing inspiring Catholic Priests, father George for example has inspired my adoption journey and introduced me to Sister’s Luganda’s Ethiopian orphanage, both of them spending their lives following the path of Jesus helping poor countries’ missions, how most admiring!

Super Sisters Bees Eusociality Evolution

by Nataša Pantović

Eusociality, from Greek εὖ eu "good", is the highest level of organization of animal sociality, found in bees and ants, and include care of offspring from society, or a division of work into reproductive and non-reproductive tasks. This division of labor within the animal world our biologists call “castes”. An interesting behavior characteristics of caste members is that a member of one caste loses the ability to perform the task of another.

Super Sisters Bees Eusociality and Castas

Honey bees, super sisters’ bees and their Eusociality has developed over the 1,000s of years of evolution and has always fascinated people with its efficiency and complexities. In haplodiploid species, bees included, females develop from fertilized eggs and males from unfertilized ones. A queen only mates during one brief period in her early life, over the course of a small number of mating flights. About 10-20 drones (males) will mate with the queen during her mating flights. The greater the genetic diversity of sperm collected by the queen the greater the chance of the colony surviving. When a drone mates with the queen, he releases his semen with such a force that his endophallus is ripped from his abdomen and this shortly after causes his death. The 10-20 drones that succeed in mating with the queen must compete with hundreds of other drones gathered at the drone congregating area. The queen spends her life, around 5 years, laying eggs and during the summer she can lay up to 2,500 eggs per single day. The queen stores the sperm and she decides whether or not she fertilizes the eggs, deciding on the number of the future females or males within the hive.
