Dear readers, we would just like to recall that all the texts on www.euinside.eu are a subject to copyright and if you would like to use any of our articles to republish, please contact us for details "Secret" monument of Alexander the Great in Skopje angers Athens www.euinside.eu/en/comments/undercover-monument-of-alexan...

"A warrior on a horse" is the official name of this "bijou" but everybody knows that it is actually a monument of Alexander the Great. The authorities have invented this abstract name to avoid angering Greece again. The trick however didn't work and the Greeks, as expected, reacted immediately by accusing the Macedonians of usurpation of their history and inflaming nationalism.

La place est actuellement en re-développement et il y a beaucoup de nouveaux bâtiments autour de la place en cours de construction.

Des vieilles archives de Zinaida Beaumont:
Dans le magnifique et disparu Camelott, j'ai découvert les soirées dansées, chics et variées. Attention à certaines boules de danse: elles pouvaient mener à des slows très langoureux. Camelott et ses beaux jardins a disparu, remplacé par un magasin de lits de sexe, mais il a été relocalisé ailleurs, un peu différent.
Au mur, une mosaïque représentant Alexandre le Grand.

From Zinaida Beaumont's old files:
In the old and long gone Camelott, a waltz with a friend.
It was a good place to dance, with beautiful gardens. Now it is a shop for sex beds. Some of the dance balls were dangerous (very hot sexy slows).
On the wall, a mosaic with Alexander the Great.

J'ai laissé en ligne l'exemplaire privé de l'image, car il avait des commentaires dessus.

Representations in this chamber depict Alexander the Great before an Ithyphallic Amun Alexander the Great standing before figures of the ithyphallic Amun. Alexander the Great is, of course, dressed as a pharaoh, and in these scenes he receives the two crowns of Upper and Lower Egypt. He also participates in offering rites. At one time four pillars defined the space where the sacred barque of Amun (of Karnak), and his image were placed during the Opet Festival, but these were replaced during the time of Alexander the Great with an inner shrine. Above the lintel of the doorway into this antechamber, a small chamber was built into the wall that was just large enough to accommodate a man. It was concealed by removable slabs, and accessed by holds cut in the wall. Some scholars believed this to be a priest-hole, where a priest would conceal himself during religious Detail from the Central Wall of the Barque Shrine modified by Alexander the Great ceremonies. He would then be the voice of Amun, when priests asked questions of the god. Other, less cynical of Egyptian religion, think it was a secret annex for storing ceremonial objects.

El capitel del arco triunfal del lado del evangelio ilustra una Ascensión de Alejandro, escena ésta infrecuente en la plástica románica y cuya significación es polivalente. Según ésta, el monarca macedonio ascendió a los cielos arrastrado por dos grifos hambrientos que se elevaban persiguiendo en vano los trozos de carne ensartados en dos varas que el mismo Alejandro sostenía. En el relieve de Revilla vemos a Alejandro sentado sobre una cuerda que enlaza los cuellos de las bestias y sosteniendo las varas, cruzadas sobre su pecho, en las cuales se ensartan las piezas de carne que persiguen con sus picos los grifos. La visión frontal y majestuosa no deja de recordar las apoteosis imperiales romanas. La interpretación de la escena es delicada, ya que la figura de Alejandro fue considerada ya paradigma del héroe y modelo de gobernantes (y así en su ascensión podríamos ver una prefiguración de la de Cristo), ya ejemplificación de uno de los vicios más condenados en la Edad Media, como es la soberbia. En el caso concreto de Revilla el contexto mismo de la escena, frente a la imagen de la Pax Dei y su ubicación en el arco triunfal de la iglesia, y no en portadas o claustros como es habitual, nos decanta por su carácter positivo.

FLIGHT OF ALEXANDER

Alexander
Sought to fly;
Two griffins
Bore him nigh
To the sun’s
Celestial flame:
Let Icarus
Take the blame.

Some say
Alexander went
Heavenward
By his own consent;
But see here:
The griffins seek
To grip each arm
Within each beak!

His eyes bulge,
His lips are pursed:
I should say
He was coerced.

Source material: The ‘Flight of Alexander’ was a common decorative scheme in late medieval churches and manuscripts. At Charney Bassett, the griffins have seized Alexander by the arms, and he looks distinctly surprised by his mode of heavenly ascent.
Poem by Giles Watson, 2008.

This 2.7 meter-tall marble statue of Alexander the Great dates to Italy in the 2nd century AD. Restored in the workshop of B. Cavaceppi in the 18th century, it was finished with the head of another statue.

Originally part of the Collection Albani, belong to Cardinal Alexandre Albani, the nephew of Pope Clement XI, the statues decorated the Roman portico of the Villa Albani. The collection was seized by France in 1797 under the Treaty of Tolentino, and purchased by the Louvre in 1815.
