Motorcycle travel series by @velimir 'Zagorje 39' (Part #149)

in #travel4 years ago (edited)

I come to the yard to speak a bit with elderly Mr Rimac. I ask him about his art.

-'Oh, I don't think its art,' he answers calmly.
-'What do you mean it's not art,' I ask dumbfounded?
-'Well, this is what I do when I take my time to cool off from things,' he says.
I've heard many reasons for creating art but this one is quite unique. I am about to ask more but he continues his explanation.
-'When things don't go the way I'd like them to, I seclude myself and work for hours on end. This is how I find my peace, my calm.'
I'm just about to comment when his son comes out of the house.
-'There's one more thing to see,' he says.
-'Oh, really?'
-'Yes, come inside.'

We enter the other part of the house. Kitchen and living room area. There I find a stone fireplace made to look like a castle. Wow.

Mind you this thing is way taller than me and I'm not a small guy. :)

Take a look at all those details and heaps of small stones he carefully laid in there. The entrance.

The balcony.

The tower detail.

The top of the main tower with stone-covered chimney.

The Beautiful metal door he made, as well.

And the inside. Yes, it is fully operational.

Mr Rimac is a unique artist driven by his strong inner passion. He works well with stone, wood and metal, creating art that is used in everyday life. He calls himself craftsman but he definitely deserves the artist title!

Enjoy your day! :)

Another nice, exploration...on motorcycle....its not about nature anymore.

Sometimes is about nature, sometimes about art, sometimes about the ride, sometimes about places I visit or happen to stumble upon. :) i don't like to keep this the same all the time!
cheers, my friend!

Sometimes about sex? No? (it's a joke, stupid joke)
