The green of the emerald is the colour of life and of the springtime, which comes round again and again. But it has also, for centuries, been the colour of beauty and of constant love. In ancient Rome, green was the colour of Venus, the goddess of beauty and love. And today, this colour still occupies a special position in many cultures and religions. Green, for example, is the holy colour of Islam. Many of the states of the Arab League have green in their flags as a symbol of the unity of their faith. Yet this colour has a high status in the Catholic Church too, where green is regarded as the most natural and the most elemental of the liturgical colours.

The magnificent green of the emerald is a colour which conveys harmony, love of Nature and elemental joie de vivre. The human eye can never see enough of this unique colour. Pliny commented that green gladdened the eye without tiring it. Green is perceived as fresh and vivid, never as monotonous. And in view of the fact that this colour always changes somewhat between the bright light of day and the artificial light of a lamp, emerald green retains its lively vigour in all its nuances.

    Hej Kojiki!
    Har tittat runt lite i den här bloggen ikväll och ville titta till dig också en sväng.
    Hoppas allt bra med dig och vad det gäller bloggeriet ser jag att du håller hög kvalité som vanligt.
    Underbart vackra bilder att njuta av.
    Ska gå till Animé Art och kolla lite också.

    Önskar dig allt gott och du ska veta att jag saknar dig.
    Jag bloggar fortfarande inte men läser rätt månmga bloggar och kommenterar ibland. Har mest läst mest kändisbloggar ett tag faktiskt.

    Varm kram till dig från Ninacian/Nincasol.

    Obama did NOT give an exact date for his visit to Iraq in January 2006. He gave a date of departure for a trip that included various stops. We all know that he left for his current trip yesterday, but we still don’t know when he’ll be in Iraq. Until this morning, we di2d7#8n1&;t know that he had gone to Kuwait and Afghanistan.
