Elaine Rabinovitch, psicóloga social e autora da tese "Vitrinespelhos-Brasil", sobre o modo de morar e os ornamentos das casas populares brasileiras, defende que os objetos da casa não só retratam como conduzem mudanças no comportamento e nos valores.

Nesse sentido, o espelho pode sair de um lugar meramente decorativo, ou da herança chique aristocrática - associada aos valores tradicionais e aos bons modos -, para atuar como elemento transformador do espaço, pois dialoga com portas envidraçadas, aumenta a refração da luz, multiplica seu lado brilhante, oferecendo novas possibilidades.

Os jogos de espelhos podem ter várias funções. Basta colocá-los em posições estratégicas para promover uma verdadeira revolução:

· Criar uma janela a mais no ambiente, trazendo a luz de fora;

· Transportar a paisagem externa para o ambiente interno (jardim, piscina);

· Criar ilusão de amplitude em pequenos espaços ou de continuidade de um ambiente (no final de um corredor, por exemplo).

Contra o mau-olhado

É na entrada da casa, de preferência no hall, bem de frente para a porta, que inúmeras tradições recomendam a colocação do espelho como guardião. Como se as forças maléficas não pudessem atravessar a face brilhante, o vidro gelado do espelho.

Houve um tempo em que os pesquisadores e místicos acreditavam que a luz saía do olho humano e iluminava os objetos, portanto o olhar era capaz de emitir maus fluidos.

Como são feitos os espelhos

As primeiras imagens refletidas foram obtidas no Egito e na Grécia antiga, com polimento de ouro, prata e bronze. Assim foi até o século XIV, quando os artesãos da cidade portuária de Veneza, na Itália, descobriram a técnica de produção de espelhos a partir de chapas de vidro e cristal, cobertas com estanho ou mercúrio. Os segredos dessa arte eram guardados a sete chaves e os artesãos trabalhavam sob vigilância.
Os espelhos móveis venezianos, tão caros quanto joias, rechearam os grandes castelos e salas da aristocracia até o século XVIII. Além de decorativos, eram símbolos de riqueza e ostentação.

No Brasil, os espelhos eram produzidos até há bem pouco tempo artesanalmente, de vidro, pois o cristal era caríssimo, importado da Bélgica. "A diferença entre vidro e cristal depende da quantidade de chumbo adicionada na fabricação da chapa - quanto menos chumbo, mais puro é o cristal. A face brilhante é feita à base de nitrato de prata. Para reconhecer a qualidade do espelho é preciso olhar na diagonal: o vidro produz ondulações e o cristal é totalmente plano, sem distorções", explica José Seixas, artesão de uma tradicional vidraçaria, instalada há anos em São Paulo.

Restaurar não compensa

Preços baixos e grande variedade de modelos industrializados desencorajam a restauração desses objetos e raramente compensa dar um novo banho de prata numa peça muito danificada."É impossível corrigir manchas antigas que já penetraram na superfície do vidro", diz o artesão.

A única maneira de garantir a durabilidade dos espelhos é mantê-los longe da umidade. Por isso, os de banheiro têm vida mais curta. A garantia de qualidade fica por conta da tradição do fabricante.

"Super Heroes like Superman and the Incredible Hulk When pondering the results of great superhero battles like those between Superman and the thunder god Thor and Superman vs Hulk, the question arises as to what attributes a superhero has that endears him or her to fans? Following is a list of general attributes of the mighty mortalimmortal, who lends his hand to help the weak and protect them from otherwise insurmountable threats. They are strong, intelligent, defend the weak and the oppressed, fighting injustice and always save someone's day. Over the decades, the superheroes have gained new powers, modifying old skills, participated in different adventures and gaining more fans. Although they are recurring themes of films, most known superheroes like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and SpiderMan born of comics. The first supernaturally strong character to appear in comics was Hercules Hugo, in 1920. He was just an ordinary man with an extraordinary force that helped the people of his city. The first record of a superhero costume is one year later, the Scarlet Pimpernel. In a plot no children, he rescued people destined to the guillotine during the Terror of the French Revolution. Despite being the forerunner in the history of heroes with secret identities and disguises, Scarlet Pimpernel, like Zorro created in 1919 and the Phantom, 1939, had no superpowers. The major milestone in the world of superheroes and the first to use this title was Superman, the Man of Steel, created in 1938. From it, many others have emerged following the same genre. In addition to the uniforms, secret identities and superhuman ability, the new defenders created live adventures in scenarios much like the reality of their times. Scenarios are urban and contemporary, with villains of crime and corruption. In this struggle for justice, Superman, Spiderman created in 1952 and The Incredible Hulk 1962 have superhuman abilities. Batman 1939 and Iron Man 1963, however, have become heroes adding their life experiences, specific training and better technology. Founded in 1941 by psychologist Willianm Mouton Marston, Wonder Woman was the first superhero in the world of comics and an important symbol in the struggle of the feminist movement. For its creator, it was the psychological propaganda for the new woman who should rule the world. It showed that women had the ability not only to be as good as men, but they are even better than them. Another superhero has emerged with an important mission was Captain America. Created during World War II, his goal was to stimulate patriotism among the population. The hero, in fact, was a young man who made no effort to help the United States win the war. After participating in an experiment, becomes a super soldier. After the conflict, the character lost his great success, being revived in 1964 as group participant Avengers. There are plenty of supervillains around, which necessitates the presence of so many superheroes. Sometimes, the best of these fight in superhero battles , to help sift through an hierarchy of them; usually, Superman and the Incredible Hulk come out on top. It's only fitting, then, that these two titans should do battle to determine the mightiest. " ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿ 574 - 14/06/2014 09:04:55
