Dear reader, You are holding in Your hands, or at least near You, the twelfth issue of Epifanio. It came out pretty good, I think. Here is a conversation with an Indian architect, poet, philosopher and painter, Shirish Beri, who is famous for his holistic perspective. Vilen Künnapu made sketches and watercolours of the natives and most beautiful places on his trip to India. The painter Kaido Ole writes about why he is keen on contemporary art and points out some schools and works of art that arouse his passion. Another painter Andres Tolts summarises what it means to have the calling and vocation for art, based on his over forty years of experience. Epifanio's long-time correspondent from London Harry Pye writes about a legendary British ska-band "The Specials", who are less known in Estonia, and about his own group "The Extra Specials". Jaan Kuusemets has contributed with his mystical project of the Divine Seed Temple near Tallinn City Hall, which is shaped like a sun-flower seed and brings together different religions. Andrus Elbing continues his lyrical path and has put down the last lines of former prison life and the marks that this experience has left on the heart of a free man. Mart Aas analyses eight peculiar cases that he has witnessed and still not quite understood. On the back cover of this Epifanio, full of fine art, Mare Vint has drawn some sensitive southern architectural scenes with colour pencils.
Finally, a little quiz. How many candles are lit on Epifanio's raspberry-yogurt cake?
