I have, in some respects been putting this off for a couple of weeks.. I miss the days when time seemed like something to laugh at and was only ever useful as the solution to hangovers, by sleeping through them… ALAS!!! i was wrong.. time has caught up with me and it’s time to think about that awful word… management. as in time management…
I am back in school and have to prioritize what i spend my time on once again… as always i put too much on my plate. and woodworking (despite trying to wean myself from it in preparation for school) wants to take up a lot of that time ;) and i am in fact a slave to the will of the force… and it is strong in the wood!
SO!! i must listen to the voices of the wood and i give you the inspiration for the next project.
what do you see?
you’ve got a dirty mind havnt you!! it is in fact 9 dolphins! tisk tisk… if you show the picture (and i’ll be careful about putting an age on this, because some people grow up faster than others) to a “young” child, they will not be able to see the man and the woman together in the picture… they will in fact only be able to see the dolphins, whereas I’m willing to bet that all of you saw the intimate aspect first, eh? ;)
i’ve always been fascinated by this picture, i have no idea who the artist is, though I am in full swing of trying to find out…
the plan is to do a marquetry version of this illusion in a serving tray. though this will quickly be subject to change should i think of anything better.. or should there be any better suggestions from you brilliant minds on LJ :)
