Maria Callas (1923-1977) was one of the most famous opera singers in history. An American of Greek origins, the soprano was renowned for her technique and dramatic interpretations, which gave rise to the nickname La Divina.

She was born in New York, but studied music in Greece, after which she began performing for the Greek National Opera in Athens. She impressed critics and audiences with her powerful and versatile voice. The height of her career was reached in Italy, eventually singing in all the major theatres in the country, particularly the famous La Scala.

Got no head for planning, just
A heart that sings with rage
And what’s running through
My veins screams out DESTROY
And forgets to have a reason.
—  My Mom Calls Me Athena
I Tell Her “No, I am Ares”

Dinotopia is a fictional utopia created by author and illustrator James Gurney.  It is the setting for the book series (1992) with which it shares its name. Dinotopia is an isolated island inhabited by shipwrecked humans and sentient dinosaurs who have learned to coexist peacefully as a single symbiotic society. 

Gurney’s assignments for National Geographic magazine required him to work with archaeologists to envision and paint ancient cities that no one alive today has ever seen. This inspired him to imagine his own.
