Of every stripe

Sometimes I really not sure if i believe wikipedia. I was looking for some inspiration for this here write up and looked up ‘stripes’. According to Wikipedia ‘stripes on clothing first appeared in the Medieval times. During that era, only prisoners, criminals, clowns, prostitutes, hangmen, etc. were seen wearing a black and white stripped garment.’ This paragraph is then finished with ‘During the 60s and 70s, more and more people started to wear striped shirts as the garment was seen as a symbol of rebellion.’ Now I’m no scholar on stripes but that all sounds like a load of balderdash to me.

Anyway, I digress, today’s sphere is examining some microscopic stripes that are barely visible to the human eye. I’ve magnified the picture enough so it’s all clearly visible. Why she’s examining the microscopic stripes is anyone’s guess. She’s on A2 and has been made using the magic of stripes, stencils, spraypaint and imagination. Drop us a line if interested…

She is Hekate

She is Hekate

I was checking out gods and mythology on Wikipedia (which all falls under the broad parameters of ‘research’) when i came across a goddess and I just knew I had to do a picture of her. She is ‘Hekate’ and is associated with crossroads, entrance ways, fire, light, the Moon, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs & poisonous plants, necromancy, and sorcery. Apparently she has rulership over earth, sea and sky, as well as a more universal role as Saviour , Mother of Angels and the Cosmic World Soul. Now in my book that’s all pretty impressive CV and you also can’t take away the fact that she has three heads. Which is surely more useful than just the standard one…
