The Dark Knight summarizes these concerns in an enlightening way: Lucios Fox – Morgan Freeman – is the tech genius who helps Batman achieve his objectives: adapt a war vehicle to arrest thugs, use a plane to capture a Chinese thief or chase the Joker throughout Gotham City using the citizens’ cell phones as an underwater radar.)

10 works to meet Leonora Carrington

By Sybaris Collection

Leonora Carrington Moorhead is one of the most important referents of Surrealism. Born in Lancashire in 1917, she spent her first years of life in a neo-Gothic-style mansion, where she began to devise some of the creatures that haunted her throughout life: fantastic animals, specters and memories where dreams merge with reality.
