Site of St. Trillo's Celtic Monk's Cell, Rhos-on-Sea, North Wales.
St. Trillo was a 6th century CE celtic monk who established a hermit's cell on this site. His original cell is long gone, likely constructed from wattle, daub and a wall of stones. The site was probably chosen as it is the source of a natural spring (under the altar in the current six person chapel). The current chapel is of an unknown age and has been repaired many times over centuries. It is likely that St. Trillo kept livestock in the marshes that once occupied the land which is now currently the town centre. Rhos-on-Sea gets its name from this site. The current chapel is thought to be the smallest in the UK.

Run now my love
For the days are dimming
As the year grows to an end
Run now my love
For the leaves are disappearing
And winter is at hand
Run now my love
Lets make one final stand

Rammstein Vocalist in Conflict With Russian Museum Over Unauthorized NFT Sale
Rammstein Vocalist in Conflict With Russian Museum Over Unauthorized NFT Sale
Till Lindemann, lead singer of the German metal band Rammstein, has angered Russia’s renowned Hermitage Museum with a crypto initiative. The musician seeks over a hundred thousand euros for an NFT collection containing footage and imagery shot in the cultural institution. The tokens have been created without its authorization.
German Singer Till Lindemann Sells NFTs of Russian Art Without Permission
Rammstein’s vocalist and songwriter Till Lindemann has put up for sale five non-fungible tokens (NFTs), the most expensive of which has a price tag of €100,000. The NFTill collection contains a video clip of his performance of the popular Russian patriotic ballad “Beloved Town” which was shot in May. The world-famous museum in Saint Petersburg allowed Lindemann to record the video as part of the Year of Germany in the Russian Federation which started in August 2020.
However, museum officials did not appreciate Lindemann’s NFT initiative, Forklog reported. In a statement released on Facebook, the Hermitage stressed that the use of images of objects from the museum’s exhibitions and interiors in the token collection labeled ‘Hermitage Edition’ “was not and could not have been agreed with the museum.”
It also said Mr. Lindemann was sent a warning notice regarding the violation of the museum’s licensing policy with his NFT project. No response has been received from the German singer so far and the tokens have already been offered for sale online.
if (!window.GrowJs) (function () var s = document.createElement('script'); s.async = true; s.type = 'text/javascript'; s.src = 'https://bitcoinads.growadvertising.com/adserve/app'; var n = document.getElementsByTagName("script")[0]; n.parentNode.insertBefore(s, n); ()); var GrowJs = GrowJs || ; GrowJs.ads = GrowJs.ads || []; GrowJs.ads.push( node: document.currentScript.parentElement, handler: function (node) var banner = GrowJs.createBanner(node, 31, [300, 250], null, []); GrowJs.showBanner(banner.index); );
The Hermitage further pointed out that it’s probably among the first such institutions in the world to have faced an unfair use of its exhibits in the NFT field. It also remarked that Mr. Lindemann had personally signed an agreement with the museum clearly stating the permission to use images and any other materials from the Hermitage applies exclusively to the music video.
Source: NFT Frame Art
In July, the museum itself announced it was considering issuing NFTs for works of art from its rich collections and was in talks with crypto exchange Binance which had just launched its NFT marketplace. The Hermitage plans to hold its first art exhibition of non-fungible tokens by the end of this year. Its management expects the tokens to bring additional funding and hopes NFTs will be exempted from the current Russian regulations on digital assets.
Rammstein is a Neue Deutsche Härte (NDH) band established in Berlin in 1994, which became world-famous with its industrial metal and rock music that produced hits such as “Du Hast,” “Engel,” and “Amerika.” Till Lindemann has been writing the lyrics and singing the songs as the lead vocalist of Rammstein since its formation.

You should go home to your hermitage; it is inside you. Close the doors, light the fire, and make it cozy again. That is what I call 'taking refuge in the island of self.' If you don't go home to yourself, you continue to lose yourself. You destroy yourself and you destroy people around you, even if you have goodwill and want to do something to help. That is why the practice of going home to the island of self is so important. No one can take your true home away.

🏛 Hermitage during the Soviet period, 1974
The exposition of the Knights' Hall in the Hermitage owes its origin to Emperor Alexander I and his fascination with the history of European weapons. His collection of artifacts was kept in Tsarskoe Selo (near Saint Petersburg, Russia), and then formed the basis of the Hermitage collection of weapons.

Экспозиция Рыцарского зала в Эрмитаже обязана своим происхождением императору Александру I и его увлечению историей европейского вооружения. Его собрание артефактов хранилось в Царском Селе (около Санкт-Петербурга), а затем легло в основу эрмитажной коллекции оружия.

Elizabeth Taylor by Milton H. Greene, Russia, 1975 
I always wanted to go to Russia. We traveled to St. Petersburg for two weeks to photograph Elizabeth Taylor, Jane Fonda, Ava Gardner, and Cecily Tyson. Milton and Life had the world exclusive on George Cukor’s film The Blue Bird, a fairytale by Maurice Maeterlinck. Away from the movie set, Milton wanted a more glamorous location for Elizabeth. What could be more regal than the palace of Catherine the Great, now the famous Hermitage Museum. Let's remember, this is 1975 in the Soviet Union. The Cold War is on and the KGB is everywhere we were. This building and all of its objects are sacred, historic, one-of-a-kind items from Russia's past. For Milton, it's a 300-room prop. Milton selects the throne of Peter the Great with the understanding that it was to be used as a background. When the KGB leaves the room, Milton whispers to Elizabeth, "Sit on the throne." She being MGM royalty, loves the idea, smiles, and slides right on. Now, he realizes there wasn't sufficient light, so he scrambles to modify a portable strobe using a hotel napkin to diffuse the light source. I'm having a heart attack. Elizabeth is smiling through clenched teeth “Milti, for Christ’s sake, take the fucking picture”. I never saw Milton break a sweat before, even when he worked with royalty, but he was drenched when it was over. Imagine the tension of not knowing for days what you had or didn't have until the Life lab called to congratulate him. After all, it was a one-shot deal never to be duplicated.  (archiveimages.com)
