London’s Royal Academy of Arts is preparing to unveil an illuminated crossbow sight, a unique, modern way to watch medieval art from inside the museum.
The new scope, which will be unveiled on April 21, will be installed in the museum’s galleries in an effort to give visitors a glimpse inside the gallery, and will feature illuminated crossbows in the background, the Academy said in a statement.
The crossbows, which have been a staple of European art for centuries, were designed by Johannes Georges, who also designed the original illuminated crossbraces, the academy said.
The museum, which opened in 1865, has been open to the public since 1871.
The scope is part of a broader project called the Royal Academy’s Illuminated Crossbow Scope Program.
The program is aimed at showcasing artworks from around the world, and the new scope will be the first time it will be used in the library, the statement said.
It is unclear whether the crossbow will be included in the public display or not.
The academy will also be providing a public lecture on the project on April 24.
By Emily M. Brown | September 24, 2018 5:01:07The tower of St. John the Baptist at Sion in central Jerusalem is the highest building in Israel, a feat made possible by the illumination of the nearby city of Bethlehem.
The tower, which was built in 832 by St. Joseph, is currently being illuminated by a group of monks and nuns.
They have a different approach to illumination from those of other mosques, since the illumination is done by an actual pillar of light, called a “mirror.”
The monks and the nuns are known as the “mirrors” because they sit on the side of the tower facing the sun and light the area around it, said Zvi Alper, the head of the Sion Museum.
They don’t rely on the traditional incense and candles they use for their services.
Alper and his colleagues decided to use the mirror in a similar way to the monks and nun that they are.
Instead of lighting the entire tower, the mirrors are arranged in different positions, and they’re illuminated in a way that is similar to the way a lamp is lit in a home.
They illuminate the building from the tops of the towers, which is where the light from the surrounding buildings would shine.
Alber said he hopes to see the “trees” of the temple in the coming years.
He added that they hope to see more mirrors erected in other parts of the world as well.
The Jerusalem Islamic Center, which runs the sanctuary and is located in the Old City, said in a statement that the “monastery has never had the intention of turning the whole thing into a public show.”
The center said the “Mirror” will be “one of the most spectacular of its kind.”
