Sleepwalker in Rene Magritte Painting
Sleepwalker in Rene Magritte Painting. Golconda (in French, Golconde) is an oil painting on canvas by Belgian surrealist René Magritte, painted in 1953. The piece depicts a scene of nearly identical men dressed in dark overcoats and bowler hats, who seem to be drops of heavy rain (or to be floating like helium balloons, though there is no actual indication of motion), against a backdrop of buildings and blue sky. The men are spaced in hexagonal grids facing the viewpoint and receding back in grid layers. Magritte himself lived in a similar suburban environment, and dressed in a similar fashion. The bowler hat was a common feature of much of his work, and appears in paintings like The Son of Man. Charly Herscovici, who was bequeathed copyright on the artist's works, commented on Golconda: "Magritte was fascinated by the seductiveness of images. Ordinarily, you see a picture of something and you believe in it, you are seduced by it; you take its honesty for granted. But Magritte knew that representations of things can lie. These images of men aren't men, just pictures of them, so they don't have to follow any rules. This painting is fun, but it also makes us aware of the falsity of representation." As was often the case with Magritte's works, the title Golconda was found by his poet friend Louis Scutenaire. Golconda is a ruined city in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India, near Hyderabad, which from the mid-14th century until the end of the 17th was the capital of two successive kingdoms; the fame it acquired through being the center of the region's legendary diamond industry was such that its name remains, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, "a synonym for 'mine of wealth'."... * madness in Golconda_sleepwalker dream (complete title : Total madness in Golconda_dream of criticize sleepwalker ) The dreams are part of our lives...sleepwalker have the power to walk through their dreams. dreams... lost diamonds

Sleepwalkers
Sleepwalking is defined as walking or performing other complex behaviors while asleep. About 3% of the world population experienced sleepwalking at some stage in their life - many of those people simply don't know about it because one of the features of this disorder is no memory of the activities done while asleep. Sleepwalking is most common in children and is affecting more males than females. Interestingly enough, some sleepwalkers are able to do things while asleep, which they could never do while they are awake. Photoshop any celebrities as sleepwalkers, and show what things they could do while sleep walking.
