Votive Garments











These collages are my doodles of Minoan votive dresses - you can see the original Cretan Bronze Age faience ones in the black and white pics here. My coloured versions are also responses to the pre-restoration "Snake Goddess" - you can see her without her head just here in this picture of the so-called "Temple Repository" contents from Knossos. I'm fiddling round with ideas about votive textiles, paper dolls, mammalia/udders, sacrifice and the psuedo-art-sacrifice of Herman Nitsch.

I am an attention-seeking lunatic who comments on her own blog....

How sad.

But I just can't help myself.

Yes, but on the testimony of your old lecturer, at least you're a rational attention-seeking lunatic who comments on her own blog.
