      Western Art didn’t fully recover from the collapse of the Classical pagan world until the 17th and 18th Centuries, as exemplified by the works of Bernini. Then it began going downhill again around 100 years ago. With the exception of Arno Brecker, of course.

      There’s never been anything like the White Race, that’s for sure.

      That Baldacchino he designed and engineered in Saint Peter’s? The bronze for it came from the roof of the Pantheon, built in the reign of Augustus (and substantially rebuilt a century or so later). Bernini’s fantasy in bronze is pretty amazing (with bronze bees the size of small dogs buzzing all over it (the arms of the papal family that commissioned it), but the sobriety and dignity of the Roman roof was more impressive still (I bet).

      We build them, then tear them down to build again. Or rather, we did that, till the kikes murdered our culture.

      When they ripped the bronze plates off the concrete roof (which is one of the engineering marvels of the world), they did leave the (also bronze) doors in place, which weigh tons, and which to this day open and close so easily that it only takes a finger to swing them on their hinges.

      The jew is boiling over with hatred and jealousy that they are quite incapable of producing anything of cultural or artistic worth to match the abundant creations of the White race.
