Masque

Fabrication, representation, mimicry, distraction, disguise.











My Archaeology lectures have moved on from the first civilisations on the plains of Mesopotamia to the emergence of Pharaonic Egypt. When I was a little girl, I wanted to be an Egyptologist. Learning everything again, hearing little details I used to celebrate and hoarde - it feels like coming home. If ever there was a mask that was as familiar to me as my own face, it would be that last one.

P.S. i love themes

Great pics. Some of my favourite bloggers too...I used to have a random module on Roman art and architecture which I guess you might have a look at in your archaeology lectures...I always found them so interesting...I do quite fancy watching Time Team now. Haha.
