# Stepan Tersian, Gallery I

Eight photos and seven pictures are included in the Gallery I. They are inspired by my visit at Faculty of Mathematics, University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain. I saw and I was wondered by the exhibition IMAGINARY in Santiago.

I made four compositions with surfaces by Mathematics software Mathematica and Maple and complete them by graphs of curves and two math problems. Eight photos with mathematical content from Santiago de Compostela, A Coruna, Baiona and Tryavna are presented as well.

## Atlas with Sphere, Toral square, Santiago de Compostela

A stone figure, presented as Atlas, of Bendana palace (Pazo Bendaña) located at the Toral square in the historic area of Santiago de Compostela. Atlas keep a Sphere on its shoulders adorned with the sun and stars. The Eugenio Granell Foundation and Museum is housed in Bendana palace by 1995. Eugenio Granell (1912-2001) is a surrealist painter and artist, who was born in A Coruna, and spent his childhood and youth in Santiago de Compostela.

## May Sun wood carved ceiling , Daskalov house 1808, Tryavna, Bulgaria

The unique Wood-Carving Museum in Bulgaria is housed in the old Daskalov’s House in town of Tryavna. It was built by the merchant Hristo Daskalov from 1804 to 1808. The two carved Suns on the ceilings in two of the rooms are the most famous exhibits. They were made by the master Dimitar Oshanetsa and his scholar Ivan Bochukovetsa, during a period of six months in 1808. They were in competition to who one of them would decorate a ceiling with wood-carvings more beautifully. The carvings have geometry symbolizing calm May and hot July Suns.
