Uluru night 4

Deep within Australia’s vast desert, a tremendous tower of rock has been forming for some 600 million years. For Aborigines, Uluru is sacred, full of ancestral spirits and tales of the past. For tourists, it is a place of historical intrigue and natural beauty. However, for British artist Bruce Munro, this ancient monolith has become the backdrop for his latest work of art. As night falls across the Red Centre, Field of Light comes to life, with 50,000 flower-like lights glowing against the darkness.

"Man, Controller of the Universe"

Diego Rivera (December 8, 1886 – November 24, 1957) was born in Guanajuato, Guanajuato, to a well-to-do family. Rivera was descended, on his mother's side, from Jews who converted to Roman Catholicism, and, on his father's side, from Spanish nobility. Rivera was an active communist, and twice husband of Frida Kahlo (1929–1939 and 1940–1954). His large wall works in fresco helped establish the Mexican Mural Renaissance. Between 1922 and 1953, Rivera painted murals among others in Mexico City, Chapingo, Cuernavaca, San Francisco, Detroit, and New York City.
