In arboreal confinement
So as to emerge
As the ruler of all the biotopes
Of the planet Earth
And possibly as the creator
Of the new ones in the Galaxy

Both Website Mushtaq Bhat & The Realm Of The Muses share a common homepage here.

All the modules available for display from Website Mushtaq Bhat are listed above as links on top of this page on the left, whereas those available from the Realm Of The Muses are listed on the right. Modules from Cargo From The Realm Of The Muses as well as links to:About Mushtaq / About Us may appear in both sections. The links and occasional Popup below are arranged thematically.

New modules, as they reach completion will also be listed here (modules not listed here may be accessed via site map). So this page should serve, as homepage for both the realms. This facilitates a parallel development of both sites, which may, depending upon the nature and compatibility of the content, be separated in the future. If this however results in a visitor not finding a clear demarcation between the two, guess we are entirely to be blamed. A feedback in this respect will certainly be welcome.

Thanks for the visit.

The major part of the layout of this site currently relies on a background of white (Matte) and was created on a CRT Monitor, with a screen resolution of 1240x 768 pixel, 96DPI, color quality 32bits.

Unfortunately the TFT LCD Monitors though approaching steadily, the sharpness and contrast and even the black color renderings of a CRT monitor, however fail to create a real white matte background, there is a permanent luminescence and white saturation manifested, that distorts the intention of the original layout.

However, when settings of the TFT Monitor are optimal* and you have a ideal viewing angle, the graphics may well approach the original reproductions of the artworks, though the colors may still be different especially at regions depicting flowing gradients on the chromatic scale, with colors of low intensity, which maybe appear unnaturally desaturated. This is true especially in regard of works in Pastel, none of which reproduce the specificity of the originals, they appear to be more of a sui generis nature.

After testing at various "public" places, with given "factory" settings, it was evident that the CRT monitors more or less consistently showed a specific graphic with tolerable (from an artists point of view) variations, whereas those from the TFT LCD monitors a endless spectrum of fantastic variations, which is rather disappointing.

Changing the whole layout oriented toward a less Matte and more luminescent one, may take time, as I have no TFT LCD monitor at hand, to cross check the results of transformations, that may be required to make the graphic approach a fair degree of resemblance to the originals. Hoping for the visitors understanding.

For more information concerning the authenticity of the colors in the reproductions of my artworks here, please see also the additional popup notice, displayed by clicking the first image on the Intro page.
