Not Just A Statuette!
Among the artifacts sold at Christie’s Auction House on April 28 in New York was a female statuette of about 22.9 centimeters in height. She seems to be ready to open her arms like wings, while looking up at the stars from her oval-shaped head – that’s why she was named Stargazer. She is known by the name “Star Hunter” in Turkish media...
Night Shyamalan's Chemistry
You were born in India, and your family moved to Pennsylvania when you were six weeks old. You decided to be a director. Then what happened? How did your family respond to this?

Living La Dolce Vita on the Italian Lakes
Ernest Hemingway described Lake Maggiore as one of the most beautiful lakes he had seen. Roughly 60 km northwest of Milan, the lake has a glorious setting, with pristine vistas and a tranquil lakefront crowded with geraniums.

A Life in Art
Why should a visual language be trapped in canvas?

From Cape Town to Port Elizabeth
“How can one describe South Africa? A wave that links two oceans? A breeze that races the cheetahs? The Zulu spirit of the sun? A whale’s song? The breath of the forests and the leopards?
