SL Destinations: 3 Realms of ART

Welcome forward everyone!,

Revan and I are always exploring dozens of sims per day.
We’ve come across so many beautiful & fascinating destinations in Second Life.
Some places are very small, and not much to them to do a full post on,
but still made a big impression on us that we saved landmarks to revisit at another time.

You can imagine the substantial collection we have, we like just about everything lol
With so many LMs in possession, We thought to condense some choice favorites in categories.

Our picks in the “3 Realms” series will be of the Arts in this post.
Art forms in SL are interestingly diverse, With unique perspectives and creativity.
Please take time to support the Art community, refer and patron them frequently.

Look on as we cover the historic, the fun and the interactive.

The Terracotta Soldiers (TP)

 TERRA ARMY 1

This SL replica of ancient funerary art is AMAZING.

 TERRA ARMY 3

Here are the RL facts for this: In 1974 these figures were discovered by local farmers in the Lintong District, Xi’an, Shaanxi province.
The figures include warriors, chariots and horses, & varied in height according to their roles, with the tallest being the generals.

 TERRA ARMY 2

These terracotta statues represented the armies of the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang.
When he passed, They were buried with him to protect the emperor in his afterlife.

The Port is a sandbox of sorts for those into machinima, Offering LOTs of resources, & helpful tips.

It also has exploratory tunnels, caves & interactive art to play with.

Enter the building called the “Pencil factory” to see innovative & successful past projects that were launched in SL.
We haunted this place for a couple of hours LOL, & had a BALL here!

Echoes in the Garden (TP)

 FISH TOO words

This is one of several interactive installs in SL, by Artist Rose Borchovski.
Echoes is a continuation of the story on a character named Beth and her Grandchild Lot.
This sad and haunting tale comes about because of war.

 FISH TOO heads 1 1201Sunday_013

Bound by rules restricting them of what they can and cannot do,
Beth and Lot were forced to flee their home because a war had started.
They were separated in all the calamity, and Beth never found her grandchild again.

 FISH TOO heads pigs 1201Sunday_016

The Artist injects so much emotion into her creations.
You can feel the fear, the loss and pain of an upcoming war and separation.
