Faberge’s Animals: A Royal Farm in Miniature

Издатель: Royal Collection Publications

In 1907 King Edward VII and his consort, Queen Alexandra, commissioned Peter Carl Faberge to create miniature hardstone carvings of all the animals on their sprawling country estate at Sandringham in Norfolk. Domestic or wild, each creature was to be rendered in hardstone adorned with rose diamonds, emeralds, and rubies by the celebrated Russian goldsmith and jeweler, whose name was already synonymous the world over with opulence and grandeur. Faberge’s Animals takes the reader on a dazzling tour of the Sandringham commission—the largest collection of Faberge’s hardstone animal carvings in existence. The book brings the magic of this miniature menagerie to life with photographs, sketches, and other documentary material—some never before seen—from both the Russian and royal archives. Along with a historical introduction to the royal patronage behind the commission, this stunning volume includes information on Faberge’s workshops and carvers, and the materials and special…

Издатель: Никея

Многие святые говорили о необходимости иметь «память смертную», чтобы угодить Богу, в полноте прожить эту жизнь, не растратить драгоценного времени впустую. Эта книга о христианском отношении к жизни и к смерти, о ее преодолении и бессмертии. Здесь собраны размышления святых, отцов Церкви, известных церковных писателей о надежде, воскресении, посмертной участи души…

Cubic silsesquioxanes (T8 SQs), with the formula of [RSiO1.5]8, enable advanced materials design. A computational materials science framework, including ab initio density functional theory (DFT) calculations, molecular dynamics (MD), and Monte Carlo (MC) simulations, was developed to perform computational molecular design and crystal engineering of SQ based diacene-SQ and then octa(halogenphenyl)-SQ molecular systems. The goal was to identify novel molecular architectures, a priori, that exhibit targeted self-assembly behaviors and result in materials with improved electronic properties. First, existing force fields were evaluated for simulating cubic SQ systems. Next, targeting materials performance, a series of diacene-SQ molecules were designed and their crystal structures predicted by following the computational molecular design recipe. Computationally derived diacene-SQ crystals are predicted to exhibit advanced electronic properties. Finally, a series of new small-band gap…
