These creepy organisms are made out of clay, rocks, bones, wire, paint, and other random objects. They look a bit like sea creatures, don’t they?
Had a brilliant time in London today. We went to the British Museum, it’s just amazing… I saw the Rosetta Stone! There were so many other wonderful things on display there so I definitely need to go back. I also spent an ungodly amount of money on chocolate from Choccywoccydohdah and M&M’s world. Probably shouldn’t have but we won’t be there again for a while!
'The Lady of Shalott' by John William Waterhouse
The painting illustrates the following lines from part IV of Tennyson’s ‘The Lady of Shalott’:
And down the river’s dim expanse
Like some bold seer in a trance,
Seeing all his own mischance -
With glassy countenance
Did she look to Camelot.
And at the closing of the day
She loosed the chain, and down she lay;
The broad stream bore her far away,
The Lady of Shalott.
It’s the first time in years that I’ve had a new phone, and I just can’t stop playing with it! I daren’t take off the protective plastic until my case arrives either, and constantly worrying that I’ll damage or break it somehow.
I really can’t wait to test out the camera though, it’s one of the main reasons I chose this phone!
The speech recognition software on this phone is really good, actually! I’ve just spent ages speaking at Google as it searches the things I say. It understands my northern accent very well.
STAY AWAY FROM GLASGOW CITY CENTRE TONIGHT
i’ve heard unconfirmed reports of large groups…
Got up early to watch the results for the Scottish Referendum. I really thought that the yes vote would win! Still, now Scotland have voted to stay within the UK, lets hope the government keep their promises. A lot of things will have to change now, and not only in Scotland!
There is a story behind these mugs
How many times
We’ve all done it
I have a very large pile of books that I haven’t even started to read yet… so naturally I bought four more books today!
Everything runs off the same energy system. Really Powerful image set.
Amsterdam-based artist Cedric Laquieze (previously featured here) recently completed a fascinating new series of his exquisite taxidermy Fairies. These delicate sculptures are primarily composed of parts from many different insect species, but if you look closely you’ll notice bones, seeds and even a few scorpion parts as well.
Visit Cedric Laquieze’s blog for many additional images and to check out some of his other enchanting creations.
