I adore 34!
I adore 34! What a statement. What kind of person would make such an outrageous statement. Well, the way I see it there are two ways of looking at it:
One: The lady in the piece is a lunatic. ‘How do you work that out?’ I hear you ask. Well, the way I see it 34 is the atomic number of Selenium and, as we all know, Selenium was named after Selene who, in Greek mythology, was the goddess of the Moon. Lunatic derives from lunaticus meaning “of the moon” or “moonstruck”. So, there you have it. She’s a loony.
Two: The lady in the piece is a porn addict. ‘By what tortured route have you arrived at that conclusion?’ I hear you gasp in amazement. I’m glad you asked as this one is actually a bit more straight forward. The fact that you are undoubtedly reading this on the internet means that you will probably be aware of rule #34 of the internet. Which, for those of you less adventurous types out there is, “If it exists, there is porn of it. No exceptions”. So, therefore, this lady is a bona fide porn addict who loves it in all it’s kaleidoscopic forms. Well somebody has to.
This little beauty is A2 in size and features some snazzy gold leaf amongst other less exciting materials. It’s available for sale for anybody who’d be interested. Just drop us a line…

Selene & Eos
We’ve all got busy work schedules but mythological sisters Selene and Eos cover 24 hours of the day between them. All day, every day since time immemorial so no wonder they look a little worn out. They probably need a good holiday but hopefully they’re not going to get one. They’re sisters to Greek sun god Helios but had important jobs of their own to take care. Selene was the goddess of the moon and brought the moonlight that allows a little illumination in the darkness of night while her sister Eos was the goddess of dawn and personified the light of day. This picture then is from their small handover period just before dawn breaks. So there you have it.
