I looked for something appropriate to the solstice and came across this short film, Between Helinum and Flevum, by Martin Butler. I think it’s from the Netherlands. The Flevum is a delta of the Rhine, but what Helinum is I don’t know. Search engines are unaware of its existence and suggest “Helium” instead.
First this painting by Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who worked a niche market in the 16th century. His specialty was portrait heads “made entirely of such objects as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books.” This one is Vertumnus, Roman god of seasonal change, as personified by Arcimboldo’s subject the Holy Roman Emperor, Rudolf II.
And finally, an acoustic performance by Dando Shaft of September Wine.
A very happy Autumn to you all.
