Intolerance, it's Destruction of Light and Wonder


What could have been has gone.  The window on the right was brought down from The Catskills in New York.  It was to go over the Mantle in My sisters shop.  It was to be the most beautiful mosaic I have ever produced however, because of Pat McCrory I decided to use it as a different artwork.  Imagine what it could have been but, because of malice and intolerance it ended up in the fire.  Pat McCrory should be fired for losing over $50 million in revenue for the state of North Carolina.  I hope it is not his plan to tax NC citizens to make up for it. This has nothing to do with going to the bathroom...




“Ignorance and prejudice are the handmaidens of propaganda. Our mission, therefore, is to confront ignorance with knowledge, bigotry with tolerance, and isolation with the outstretched hand of generosity. Racism can, will, and must be defeated.” ― Kofi Annan


Look at what you did dude...you should resign.  You destroyed my prosperity and others...why did you that?  What's wrong with you? What is going on in this State of North Carolina? Malice and Pettiness.

Tolerance is not infinite patience, but slain patience; patience that has lost its hope and love and has thrown in the towel.” ― Criss JamiKillosophy


“Same-sex marriage has not created problems for religious institutions; religious institutions have created problems for same-sex marriage.” 
― DaShanne Stokes

The wonder of same sex marriage is that you do not have to be gay.
Can we now move on with our lives and on to more important issues? Amen.

Rise Up!!!


28 x28 stained glass mosaic "Phoenix Rising" by Victor Nunnally-sold
January 9 ,1918– U.S troops engage Yaqui Indian warriors in the Battle of Bear Valley in Arizona, a minor skirmish and one of the last battles of the American Indian Wars between the United States and American Indians.

"Spanish 'flu" becomes pandemic. Over 30 million people die in the following 6 months.

The Native American Church is formally founded in Oklahoma.

Want to do something fascinating?  Go to Wikipedia and type in any year, past, present, or future.  B.C. or A.D.  I just checked out 1918 and found sadness, irony, and disgust.  I am surprised that Indian culture does not rise up. I don't get it. You give them casinos and booze?

It's amazing how history repeats itself and how we forget.  Go to 1561 and  check out April 14th...weird.

Koi and The Cherry Tree

28" Stained Glass Mosaic Window by Victor Nunnally 2015
Thank you Karen, it fits perfect there and the light is just right.  I bet it radiates in the morning sun.  Perfect timing with the cherry blossoms in DC.  
If you get a chance click on "A Fun Slide Show"at the top of the right column.  I made that years ago and came across it while looking at my blog's archives.  I need to make another updated one.  But this one is special and sad at the same time for me.

Unforgiven

"Unforgiven" 18" Stained Glass Mosaic by Victor Nunnally2016-commission
The right to speak out is also the duty to speak out.
- Vladimir Pozner
"Unforgiven" by Victor Nunnally
I live in North Carolina. I had to go to a local Baptist Church and vote. My I.D. was viewed by three volunteers.. I had to state my name and address out loud so everyone in the room could hear. I was told patronizingly how to vote. It took two volunteers to assist in pushing my ballot into the machine as they glanced at my selections. They did not need to assist me. I am an educated middle aged white dude that just witnessed something horrendous and can't do a damn thing about it except "Pray to Jesus". I wrote The White House  and The US Department Of Justice about my experience.  I discovered that this happening all over the state with many people.  What the hell is going on?

Recall Pat Mccroy


"Do not forgive them, for they do know what they do...
As an Artist I am witnessing something going on around me and I have been passive long enough.

When a choice tells a non choice that they are wrong then all is lost.  When the blind leadeth the blind, there is no hope.  When ignorance triumphs over knowledge where do we get? Art is power.  I highly recommend the exquisite "The Conformist" by Bernardo Bertolucci...on Netflix.http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_conformist/?search=the%20conformist
Surely it is not 11:37 that is causing this madness.

Zealot: a person who has very strong feelings about something (such as religion or politics) and who wants other people to have those feelings : a zealous person

 a member of a fanatical sect arising in Judea during the first century a.d. and militantly opposing the Roman domination of Palestine...
   

I still want to know why A Baptist Church shut my permit art show down in Asheville, NC.  Preacher Man interrupted my conversation with a dear customer, pointing his finger in my face, telling me turn off my music as I was DJ-ing the event.  The police made me move my truck so they could park their bus.  It was a beautiful day and everyone was having a good time,  until these creeps showed up with no permit.  They set up a stage and put teenagers up there singing "Save me from myself" Anybody want to answer this question? It was rude. I'm sorry...I mean it was fucking rude!


Should I tell the story about the uninvited Easter guest who mocked me eating dessert in front of my family and jabbed her finger into my chest telling me how to think and act... want to hear about this Christian Evangelical?

The list goes on and on and on....Perhaps the Lion should be called King David.


It is beyond comprehension what is happening to me in this state of North Carolina.  It's beyond creepy.

Read about North Carolina's law on corporal punishment in schools: http://statelaws.findlaw.com/north-carolina-law/north-carolina-corporal-punishment-in-public-schools-laws.html

Then, to find out that Art Prize is sponsored by a Christian Evangelical organization. I never want to participate in a competition art event again.  Art is not about competition.  Just because I am not Christian does not mean I do not believe in or talk and walk with the Spirit.   I just don't hold a monopoly on it.  The most beautiful sound I have come to know is that of footsteps on a rural dirt road in solitude yet, someone is there with me.  Please stop pestering me and trying to convince me of something I don't believe in.  How can you look at what I do and say I'm lost?  Covet all you want especially when you have so much already.

I need secular...bad....

Hope and Despair By Victor Nunnally




"Despair" by Victor Nunnally 2016-A Gift from the Spider



  You can fool the masses only for so long.  What generation is going to rise up?  Not the one doped on junk pills...

"What most Americans don't realize is the staggering fact that the number of drug products manufactured outside the United States has doubled between 2001 and 2008Nearly 40% of all drugs taken by Americans come from overseas, and nearly 80% of the active pharmaceutical ingredients used to make these drugs also come from foreign countries -- mainly China and India."
http://www.cnn.com/2012/02/01/opinion/dingell-drug-oversight/

Our Government is allowing it. The Vatican says nothing.  Investors are making bank.  How come we have to vote on legal Cannabis but we do not vote on this Garbage as well as surveillance?

I just saw all the spyware apps you can place on peoples phones without them knowing.  Malice at its finest. Imagine what a high security official could do. It's sick.  It is psychopathic.  More harm comes to the person secretly doing it than to the individual they are monitoring. Imagine if your malicious teenager puts a spy app on your phone and reads all of your text messages.

A friend asked me: "why the www"?  He did not realize that the spider and the web have encased the Earth. He was distracted by the spider.  How's that for a parable? Do you see the Earth? IT sees when you're sleeping.  IT knows when your awake.  IT knows when you are bad or good so be good for goodness sake....so...you better watch out...you better not cry....you better not pout I'm telling you why Spider Claus is coming to town...Ironic that Santa had 8 reindeer as the Spider has 8 legs.  Then there is the savior Rudolph with his shiny red nose guiding them through the fog.  I wonder what or who will represent him.  That number 9 sure pops up a lot in my life as does 11.  Ever hear of the Universal House of Justice? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_House_of_Justice

Just one question:  Who is monitoring the Spider?

Thank you Molly...I am very happy that she loves it.


I did something in google search today and the results were fascinating:
I typed the word "Beautiful" in Google Images and looked at all the results that came up.
I then typed the word "Ugly" in Google Images and looked at all the results...
Try it and see if you notice anything.

A Lantern Of Natural Wonders

This is a commission lantern for a loyal customer in California.  When I was asked to create a wolf face and an eagle in flight on a lantern I have to confess, I did some head scratching but after the completion I have to say, I am very happy.  One of a kind.

An Ethereal Day in Strawberry Fields

I always wanted to go to Central Park and display a Green Man Mosaic.  I found a parking spot on the West Side and by chance walked in to Strawberry Fields:




"Strawberry Fields is a 2.5-acre (1.0 ha) landscaped section in New York City's Central Park that is dedicated to the memory of former Beatle John Lennon. It is named after the Beatles' song "Strawberry Fields Forever" written by Lennon. The Central Park memorial was designed by Bruce Kelly, the chief landscape architect for the Central Park Conservancy. Strawberry Fields was dedicated on what would have been Lennon's 45th birthday, October 9, 1985, by New York Mayor Ed Koch and Lennon's widow Yoko Ono, who had underwritten the project. The entrance to the memorial is located on Central Park West at West 72nd Street, directly across from the Dakota Apartments, where Lennon had lived for the later part of his life, and where he was murdered in 1980." Wikipedia ( I love Wikipedia)

https://www.artsy.net/artist/yoko-ono

 November 28th, 2015 in Manhattan was phenomenal.  It was as if the day was created for displaying these two works of art in Central Park.  What is going on with the leaves still changing this late in the year?     The irony of stumbling upon Strawberry fields along with the natural wonder and colors was serendipitous.  It was perfect.
