This is actually the FIRST rainbow swastika shirt I ever wore in public and it was at the 2013 Coachella music festival in Indio, CA. The stars aligned on the days of the festival as it was the end of a 6-month journey doing “The Artist’s Way” - a creative journey with my own inner artist. This was my ‘final project’ and I think I passed with flying colors! It’s a custom shirt painted with neon 3D fabric paints, sewn on front and back-piece, studs and disco-ball dots. Just Be Yourself is emblazoned on the back and hopefully it inspires one to do just that.

The tursaansydän (Finnish for "heart of Tursas" or "heart of octopus" or mursunsydän ("heart of the walrus") is an ancient symbol used in Northern Europe. It was especially popular in Lapland. Some say it was used on Lappish shaman drums. The symbol originates from prehistoric times.
Bookcover from the book of Mindaugas Peleckis: It's called "Land of Grass/Water-Snakes. Old secrets of Lithuania are opening". I reconstruct from mythology, folklore the oldest religion of Lithuanians / Indo-Europeans which is Totemism of Snakes, Reptiles and of Water, and is connected to various oldest religions of the world. Lots of etymologies, mythological perspective and some thoughts about nowadays and possible future. The main myth is "Eglė, Queen of Grass/Water-Snakes".

The building was designed by Scottish-born architect John McArthur, Jr., in the Second Empire style, and was constructed from 1871 until 1901 at a cost of $24 million. Designed originally to be the world's tallest building, by the time it was completed it had already been surpassed by the Washington Monument and the Eiffel Tower, though it was indeed the world's tallest habitable building at the time of opening. It also was the first modern building (excluding the Eiffel Tower, see above) to be the world's tallest and also was the first secular habitable building to have this record: all previous world's tallest buildings were religious structures, whether European cathedrals or, for the previous 3,800 years, the Great Pyramid of Giza.
