To Perish Into Dust

I had stopped shopping for a few months. It wasn't a self-imposed shopping ban but I really was saving everything I could. This month I have got quite a few new things, the whole savings thing has gone off the wire a bit. But the fact I stopped for a while has kept me from feeling shoppers guilt. Apart from all that I finished watching Fortysomething. It is a 6 episode wonder that my best friend discovered starring Hugh Laurie, Anna Chancellor, Benedict Cumberbatch(early days..pre-Sherlock days :P). Over this weekend we got hooked on to this other series The Killing. It is brilliant! I have been studying about the different movements in painting and seeing some mindf*ck films in class lately. My mind is saturated and I want more.
Phew!
Hope you all are having a great time(with friends, family or in solitude), learning new things(no your age doesn't matter, you learn things whenever, wherever.. obviously!) and going places(physically or in your silly little heads)..


I got the studded wrap-around bracelet from ebay.in, the skull print cotton stole from jabong.com, the jeggings and tee are from a long time back..I can't really recall where I got them from but I can tell you I really like this tee.

For all of you who are interested in paintings I would like to say I have been staring at the brilliance of this painting for a while .... see for yourself why...

The Ambassadors (Holbein)

Adios!

  11. debi, i love your tee, scarf and bracelet girl. we all need to treat ourselves to something special every now and then. it brings us joy and delight! i love that little article about education. i wish others could see it that way. this is such a money hungry, i'm better than you society, that it usually goes by the waist side. i truly believe in heaven and once there you won't have a rich section, poor section, or a i'm a doctor section etc. hahaha just my thoughts. hope all is well. continue enjoying yourself.

  12. I love that painting, it's the sort of thing you can spend ages staring at. It's also so strange because there are two patrons in the portrait and that's quite rare but there are all the clues as to why.

    1. the skull at the bottom shatters the perspectival system dominant in the rest of the painting..it is also a memento mori..predicting the death of the contemporary modes of power (colonialism and such) as early as 1533 i think...

  13. The skull scarf has been everywhere the last season! It's nice!

  14. Holbein's painting is so dense with information and symbolism. No wonder your mind is saturated. I always get completely (and blissfully) overwhelmed studying art or film, and you seem to be doing both at the same time! Oh, and I have fallen in love with Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock Holmes, so I am curious about this other show you mentioned! -- J xxxx

  16. Pretty print and painting! I totally get your idea of shopping 'ban'. I do that periodically to make sure I don't hoard things! Hope you are having a wonderful day!
