In this issue we would like to introduce to you another Swedish artist, Noomi Engström. The uniqueness of her artistic touch lies in the special blend of the diversity of her artistic talents combining the art of sculpture, painting and drawing as well as the art of scenographic installations in the time dimension which influence the fluctuating impression of the subjective experience.
We are very proud, privileged and honored to publish on the pages of the Neuroendocrinology Letters a piece of literary reflections by Andrew Herxheimer, which we hope to continue with on a regular basis in the future.
On the pages with the photographic illustrations we dive back into the twelfth century, into the town called Reval (today known as Tallinn, the capital of Estonia). The Dominican St. Katarina Monastery has collected on its stone walls the ancient figurative reliefs engraved by the skilled masters of stonemasonry. The motives reflected the old families' heraldic traditions, their power, prosperity and their individual characteristics. These stone engravings decorated the inner and outer portals of their houses from the 12th to the 16th century.
Through these photographs we would, together with you, like to discover the world's unknown parts of the ancient times in medieval Europe. The forgotten should be the source of inspiration for the understanding of the past, its continuity in the process of the creation, and for the perspectives and interpretations of the new.
