Noah Charney,: Stealing the Mystic Lamb : The True Story of the World's Most Stolen Masterpiece

Stealing the Mystic Lamb : The True Story of the World's Most Stolen Masterpiece


Description

From the author of the bestselling novel `The Art Thief`, this gripping true-crime thriller traces the gripping, six-century history of the world's most-stolen masterpiece. Jan van Eyck's `Ghent Altarpiece` is on any art historian's list of the ten most important paintings ever made. It is also the most frequently stolen artwork of all time. Since its completion in 1432, this twelve-panel oil painting has been looted in three different wars, burned, dismembered, forged, smuggled, censored, hidden, attacked by iconoclasts, hunted by the Nazis and Napoleon, used as a diplomatic tool, ransomed, rescued by Austrian double-agents and stolen a total of thirteen times. In this fast-paced, real-life thriller, acclaimed art historian Noah Charney unravels the fascinating stories of each of these crimes. Charney also explores psychological dramas that lurk within the history of art crime - and the ideological, religious, political and social motivations that have led many men to covet this one masterpiece above all others.

Paramhansa Yogananda was the first great master of India to live in the West for an extended period. Sent to America in 1920, he introduced tens of thousands of Americans to yoga. This is his autobiography. The delightful Stealing the Mystic Lamb : The True Story of the World's Most Stolen Masterpiece free pdf projects include: A Pot Holder worked in three colours, which forms a pocket to insert your hand; a rectangular Cushion Cover in elegant black, white and grey that looks fantastic in both traditional and contemporary settings; plus clothing such as the classic Child's Raglan Sweaters which is knitted in machine-washable, double-knitting weight wool - to the cool cotton Unisex V-neck Sweater that looks great on both the sexes. Each project has detailed instructions, a requirements list and tension guide, together with a gorgeous colour photograph of the finished project. The great scholar of Islam directly confronts the events of September 11th and the reasons behind Islamic terrorism in the modern world - a Sunday Times bestseller. President Bush has made it clear that we are engaged in a war against terrorism. But for Osama bin Laden and his followers this is religious war, a war for Islam against infidels, especially the United States, the greatest power in the world of the infidels. In this book Bernard Lewis shows us where the anger and frustration have come from, and the extent to which almost the entire Muslim world is affected by poverty and tyranny. He looks at the influence of extreme Wahhabist doctrines in the Saudi kingdom, where custodianship of Islam's holy places and the revenues of oil have given worldwide impact to what would otherwise have been an extremist fringe in a marginal country. He looks at American double standards, which have long caused Muslim anger, and tells us the real meaning of 'Islamic fundamentalism', 'jihad' and 'fatwa', and why the peoples of the Middle East are conscious of history in a way most Americans find difficult to understand.
