A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person

O====[::::::::::::::::::::::::::::>

Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

An interesting question, one I've thought about asking but just didn't get around to.


Anywho, mine is Rembrandt's Night Watch. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons...brandt.jpg

Why? Uh... because I liked enough to stick it up there and pretend to be all classy and sophisticated.

"Tears are for the craven, prayers are for the clown.
Halters for the silly neck that cannot keep a crown.
As my loss is grievous, so my hope is small.
For Iron, Cold Iron, must be master of men all..."
-Cold Iron, Rudyard Kipling

Nice choice! This is one of my all-time favourite paintings: his use of light & shadow is especially moving here.

I have had this one on my phone for over a year now (although I flipped it horizontally so that the spear is in his right hand and the shield in the left like it should be, but then this makes the cloak fastened on his left shoulder, which is wrong Worried oh well, can't get it perfect!)

Mine's a mish-mash. In the center is Conisbrough Castle. Around the outer edges are some antiques swords that I like, such as the fullered sword with a Brazil nut pommel from Ingolstadt, a close-up of the hilt of XI.3 from Records, a photo of XIV.1 from records, a shot of Cornelis Tromp's massive XIIIb, XVIIIa.4 from the Met, XIIIa.7, and a couple of other single handers, one of which is Xa.5

I do enjoy the dark early renaissance art. Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Hieronymus Bosch and Albrecht Dürer are my favourites.
If you liked that here is another one you might like this Razz

The Garden of Earthly Delights
painted by Hieronymus Bosch circa 1450–1516
(Note: The scene gets progressively more awesome as you move left to right)

I normally have a photo of my family/friends up there, but I have a commission shipping to me right now, so I temporarily have this as my desktop...

Reproduction. Based on the Rheinfelden halberd (c.1390-1400) in the Historisches Museum, Basel, no 1910.93.

I'll be posting a full review and all details once she arrives. (Photo by smith... more details to follow about the great experience working with him!)

Usually there is a sword on my desktop. Right now it is one of the photos that Craig Johnson of A&A took of my new walloon. Sometimes I alternate with something less edgy (and pointy) like the Eyvind Earle painting shown below

Great question, Paul.

I use this one for my phone:


I like it because it is discrete and shows off an amazing detail on one of my favorite swords.

I got it from this thread:http://www.myArmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?t=22899
