Leonardo Da Vinci designed in the fifteenth century the canon of human proportions. “Vitruvian Man” is the original title of this book, recognized as one of the mathematical advances of the Italian Renaissance. And not only for its application to the human body but because it changed the position that the man stood in the universe. The Galleria dell’Accademia (entrance 8.50) in the city of Venice makes room between Titian or Tintoretto to this drawing in pencil and ink, which also reproduce the Italian euro coins. However, although the city of canals at the time contributed to the splendor of the country (the good number of Renaissance churches attest. Prominent among them), Venice is not only part of Italy.
Her beauty is beyond the weight of the greatness of the empire. It is elegant while folksy. And above all, affordable for low income travelers. A locality, as is known, has no regular physical distribution. The network of 120 islands linked by bridges 400 is attached to the extension of land, where are the beaches and the airport.
It’s funny how when you exit the train station, the water around us and presents us with an insurmountable distance. Soon discover that getting around town is not a problem except that we have to scratch your pocket. The walking tour is the best way to soak up Venice, but will inevitably take this for long distances, especially to save water taxis. Still, every journey around 6 and it is best to get that Venice Card.
Embroidery is the art of ornament flexible surfaces using textile strands. It is a very old technique that we reference already in old age, in the great empires of the time (Egypt and Mesopotamia) Although any part of the time will not be preserved. Usually silk, wool or linen are used to carry out embroidery, although this is not an exhaustive list. On the other hand, throughout history embroideries have suffered certain evolution being able to differentiate several types according to its relief, material and/or layout of figures that represent. Taking into account the relief, we can distinguish between the embroidered smooth, enhancement and application or overlap.
While the first barely protrude from the piece on which are embroidered, of enhancement are characterized by much relief. Finally, those of onlay are made off the workpiece to be sewn to it later. In response to the material that has been used to compose them, embroideries are distinguished into several types being the most common silk and gold. By the way is They distinguish three types of embroidery: contour, the isolated and the full. As we can assume for the designation of each type, the third will be the most complete, while in the first figure will be less embroidered.
Thus, outline embroidery, only marks the outline and some of the internal lines (major) of the figure. In the isolated, in addition to the above, is filled with stripes and points the fabric part of the location of the embroidered figure. Finally, on the full, all drawing is embroidered in full. To finish with the classification (ignoring list the difference by the sewing point since they are almost infinite) we can point the distinction of the embroidery on their grounds, and may be these ornamental, the most common, or imagery, those who form portraits (for example). This classification is far from exhaustive but serves to situate ourselves in the wonderful world of embroidery, an ancient art, whose beauty is beyond all doubt, that still remains in force and to which resorted in an infinite number of occasions to decorate our garments (shirts, jerseys) and accessories (hats, scarves). And if you don’t believe it, go to your closet and take a look, sure that you sorprendeis.
