Paul Stokely, a 28-year-old London-based accountant, becomes unwillingly entangled in an adrenaline fuelled mystical adventure with the British Army, the British Intelligence Service, and the Church as main players. As Paul struggles to comprehend and navigate the inexplicable and sometimes bizarre situations fate thrusts upon him, a mysterious woman, shrouded by intrigue with an ancient symbol etched into her forehead, gently guides him to his day of destiny. With the mysterious crop circles in Wiltshire as a backdrop, Paul begins to unravel piece by piece the biggest enigma humanity has ever faced. "Sophia's Egg" is a mind bending, thought provoking spiritual thriller written in the combined tradition of "The Da Vinci Code" and "The Celestine Prophecy" and set in the powerful and magical landscape of Wiltshire, England. It is the New 'Gnostic' Testament wrapped in a visionary fictional framework founded on historical facts and contemporary research. It merges science (psychology and quantum physics) with different shamanistic and esoteric insights and shakes the holy house of organised religion by asking the questions they are most afraid to answer. This is a book packed with insights, inspiration and excitement.
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen has been collecting Surrealist art since 1965. In something over half a century, what began with a single purchase has now grown into a world-class core collection with works by Dali, Magritte, Man Ray, De Chirico, Ernst and many others. Surrealism, which started as a literary movement, is not a school, but rather a collective attitude or lifestyle in which automatism, chance and the subconscious are key. The museum's collection includes paintings, sculptures, objects, drawings, prints and photographs - as well as a large number of Surrealist publications, magazines, manifestos and pamphlets. This dream collection has now been brought together in a catalogue raisonne for the first time. The catalogue raisonne contains three introductory essays. Sandra Kisters, the current Head of the Collection and Research Department, provides an outline of the Surrealist movement. Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Saskia van Kampen-Prein, explains the acquisition history and establishment of the museum's Surrealist art collection. Surrealism expert Laurens Vancrevel examines the museum's unique, often neglected collection of Surrealist publications. The essays are followed by the catalogue, consisting of 108 short texts about the artworks. Most of the texts were written by Marijke Peyser, who was awarded her doctorate in 2008 with her dissertation on the Zodiaque, a circle of patrons around Salvador Dali. The Duchamp texts are by Bert Jansen, who obtained his doctorate with his thesis on Marcel Duchamp in 2015.
