“He was my own son.
Now you give him a new lease of life”,
said Mother Parvati to Lord Shiva.

Lord Shiva then ordered his Ganas to go out and bring the head of any creature they saw first.
It was an elephant that the Ganas found first.
So they cut its head and brought it to Lord Shiva.
Putting the elephant head at the boy’s torso, Lord Shiva infused a new lease of life in him.

Of all the multitudes of deities and gods that constitute the Hindu religion, Lord Ganesha is probably one of the most loved and revered of all, regardless of individual beliefs and customs.
Considered the God of good beginnings and wisdom, it is in his name that new ventures are undertaken and important life decisions made.

This illustration of Lord Ganesha was printed on a tile and fixed on the wall of a house in the oldest part of Varanasi (Benaras).
Since a while several walls of the holy city are covered with paintings or tiles showing any image or symbol of the main religions and most often they are displayed all together.
This is a simple trick in order to keep the walls clean as no-one there would dare making a “lack of respect” to any represention of God…

“It is said that no star is a heroine to her makeup artist.”
(Richard Corliss – American writer for Time magazine, b.1944)

My friend Carmen Arbues Miro is the amazing make-up artist of “1789 : Les Amants de la Bastille”.
Her stage makeup work is well-known worldwide, she is in charge of superproductions in Las Vegas, Macao and Paris and many movie stars won’t allow any camera to shoot before she spends a moment with them…
I always loved to work with Carmen, her magic fingers can do anything.
She always brought a positive energy during the fashion shows and fashion shoots we used to do…
