Touch of Magick- Cave Painting- Nisha Designs

Touch of Magick: Cave Painting: “These cave paintings are of prehistoric origin, to some dating around 40,000 years ago (around 38,000 BCE), and have been found in both Asia and Europe. Paleolithic cave painting in Dordogne, France was believed to depict early shamanic practices. There I believe we find the beginning of when humanity was first able to tap into the source and find that by connecting to an object that represented what they wanted they could have some control over the outcome of their interaction with it. This then is one branch of the history of magick- Ravenhawks Magazine/Ravenhawks Academy

Miss Mexico 2020 Contestants Have the Most Spectacular Traditional Outfits- My Modern Met- Nisha Designs

Traditional-Inspired Mexican Outfit

Miss Guanajuato, Georgina Villanueva

The annual Miss Mexico competition has a spectacular category that is an indisputable showstopper. Known as the “traditional outfits” presentation, contestants rock designer-made, artistic representations of the country’s customary clothing. The ensembles are nothing short of incredible and feature sculptural headdresses, fully painted skirts, and, in some cases, woven sandals worn as accents on a dress and as a crown.

Each outfit showcases an expert level of craft with elements that meld traditional and contemporary styles. Each contestant models these garments in a thematic photoshoot. One of the most dramatic and awe-inspiring presentations from Miss Mexico 2020 is worn by Georgina Villanueva, aka Miss Guanajuato. Her look is called María Catrina, and it references traditional “marías” (rag dolls) that are arranged on the black skirt. “The marías are known worldwide, and the design shows two traditions of Mexico, as its name indicates the catrinas, allusive to death, and the marías,” Miss Mexico explains. “The black color means mourning, power, elegance… the makeup was an inspiration from the skulls and traditional hairstyles of our beautiful women.”

Scroll down for more traditional outfits, and look for the winner of Miss Mexico 2020 to be announced on October 31, 2020.

Trying to attract tourists, restaurateurs build facilities where people can sleep in interesting forms. so, many winemakers have facilities that associate with grapes and wine. For example in Douro, Portugal in the facilities of Quinta da Pacheca sleep is organized in huge wine barrels.

Here, people who want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the cities can relax in these quaint and romantic barrels and savor their original wines.

The estate has existed for 280 years with a 140-acre vineyard. To be there and spend some time is a dream of every wine lover, and with great and original accommodation, this can be near perfection.

The giant wine barrels are designed to look like the actual wine barrels they use in the vineyards. The property owner Paulo Pereira and Maria do Céu Gonçalves designed and built them from pine.

Each apartment is 30 meters long and has a breathtaking view. It has a light window that makes the room feel much bigger than it is.

In this “wine room” tourists can use the shower, the bathroom, and the front deck. They don’t have to do anything but slow down and indulge in the beauty that surrounds them. The bed has a round shape that is rarely found in other tourist places and in real life.

KINDS OF WINE In QUINTA DA PACHECA

THE DOURO WINE REGION

The valley of the Douro wine region is home to ports and enriched wines like Sherry. Mountainous terrains will delight anyone who learns about the region and are in itself a sufficient reason to put it on the list of next destinations.

This region is up to Barca de Alva, which is the oldest branched wine region in the world. It is characterized by a carved deep valley of the river, on the side of which, by the hand of man, mountain areas have been turned into soil and walls and planted with vines. The whole region is green in summer and blue in autumn.

The knowledge of grapes and wine is passed on from generation to generation. The landowners removed the terraces overtime to expose the vines to the sun and thus provide the necessary warmth for the grapes. This unique wine and landscape are created from the fruits of the earth and human labor.

 COST TO STAY AT QUINTA DA PACHECA

The price is similar to many other accommodations in the area, about $ 250 per night. As this is a great trip for most people, it is necessary to get tickets to Portugal, regulate everything regarding travel documents and head to that destination.
