Ask me anything   The Icon Hunter in fact is a thought-provoking pastime. This blog can be a source of raw information for students in many disciplines (art history, iconology, philosophy, psychology etc). The Icon Hunter shows different elements' relationships in the visual culture. In every part there will be pictures of the given theme.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
Hope you enjoy!

Friedrich Nietzsche - Ecce Homo /The Genealogy of Morals/

"Dionysus, as you know, is also the god of darkness. In each case the beginning is calculated to lead one astray; it is cool, scientific, even ironical, intentionally thrust to the fore, intentionally reticent. Gradually the atmosphere becomes less calm; there is an occasional flash of lightning; exceedingly unpleasant truths emphasize their appearance with a dull, rumbling sound from out remote distances-until finally a fierce tempo is attained in which everything strains forward with terrible intensity. At the end, in each case, amid fearful thunderclaps, a new truth becomes visible through heavy clouds."
