In the middle of IKEA, in the children’s section, I found this note, and felt that it was worthy of attention.
At this point I returned to the embroidery to examine more details from it, and felt that as I tried to research these elements, I was becoming lost too, like the child in the store.
It was about then that the power of the Cockatrice and it’s fatal gaze brought to my mind the parlous state of the world at present, and of one character who might benefit from it’s attention.
But as I mentioned before, I have continued to scrutinize elements from the embroidery, turning my attention to, first of all,
I have noticed the reoccurrence of headgear references running through my research and I have referred to this in my very short animation. It was inspired by the tulip in the young woman’s hand as well as by my four-year old great-neice who is astounding all her family and friends against all the odds.
