Just waiting for the descent of the gendarmerie....
I'm always amazed by veiled sculpture. It must be so hard to do.
I love pictures of veiled woman, they're so eery! When i visited Chatsworth House (the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire's residence) i saw this sculpture of a veiled woman (http://www.denyerec.co.uk/gallery.php?pic=ChatVeil) in the sculpture gallery. It was featured in the 2005 Pride and Prejudice film, in which Chatsworth was used as Mr Darcy's 'Pemberley'. I found it really haunting and a bit confronting (for some reason...i may be way off the mark here haha).Thanks for your words of encouragment the other day, i was having a minor breakdown with all the stuff i had to do. You're right, it's all about balance - something i haven't yet been successful in getting in my life :S I've broken up for Easter now so atleast i've now got a chance to sleep, catch up with friends and sort my life out! Lots of love, Lucy :) x
Hello:What an absolutely splendid way to start the weekend. These images of veiled women are so appealing and, of course, come at a time when there is so much debate in France over women covering their faces with a veil.When does a veil cease to be a layer of mystery and become a barrier?
This cease to be a layer of mystery when a religion force you to do it....simple as that.
Beautiful. Have a great weekend!
quite beautiful.....such mystry....as I;ve said before I think the burka could be the way forward
The statue is amazing to the point of Michelangelo eat your heart out [almost]
So beautiful...I am amazed at the artistry of the sculpture and the mystery is relays.
