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.

PORT BEAT CUBES
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.

 TERRA ARMY 4

************************************************
The Port (TP)

 PORT circles

Loved Loved Loved this place!
This sim is a mashup of eclectic art galleries & media.

 1201Sunday2_006

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

 PORT trees 1201Sunday2_004

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

 1201Sunday1_009 1201Sunday2_002

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!

1201Sunday1_001 PORT Cookies Sound
***********************************************
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.

SL Destinations: Overto Omonto

10072013Metales_009

Dark of Day, Darkest Nights
Melancholy souls in their Blithe…

06.10_081 06.10_083

Lonely is the companion here.
No way out is their fear.

06.10_091

Their Best Friend is called Desperation
While settled at Home in Isolation.

06.10_097

Some Sing to elevate
Some turn to fortune telling to speculate
giving hope, where none is found.

06.10_099 06.10_102

Some hold on to faded pasts
while wearing Bitter Masks

06.10_093

Empty Voids & Loss Deficient
Disappointment ongoing and consistent

06.10_079 06.10_112

The others here… Did they seek,…a way out,… of being tired and meek?

10072013Metales_003
Stop & Take a look at the Dark & Mysterious Overto Omonto sim, designed by Romy Nayar.
You as the visitor can make a difference for these poor characters.

06.10_088
There is a puzzle to solve amongst the characters.
Each one of them holds a keyword that collectively Will open a door to freedom.

10072013Metales_006 10072013Metales_007
This sim although shadowy is visually appealing..It’s like walking into a Sepia photograph.
We recommend this art install as a addition to your exploring list.

We hope you Enjoy as we have 🙂
