Walking up the High Street in Stromness, looking at the Móti exhibition https://theorkneynews.scot/2020/11/23/art-in-the-time-of-covid/ , we also noticed this…
If I see something interesting, I tend to take a photo, then think about what to do with it later. So, I took a picture, then realised I had no idea what to do with it!
Then, reading TON, I saw another update from the Council about which bins to put out and when, and I thought my photo could accompany the next update – something along the lines of…. ‘Put out your naked ladies every second Thursday’, so I sent that out, with the photo, to those that I thought might have the sense of humour to enjoy it!
Friend Andrew’s response was just two words…. “Cave Art!”
Mike said it would be good as part of some kind of piece about the depiction of the human female form through the ages – and I agree – going right back to the very early round lady sculptures, such as the Venus of Willendorf https://mymodernmet.com/the-venus-of-willendorf/ , copies of which have been made by The Harray Potter himself!
I’m afraid I’m not going to take on writing that piece – too much like hard work!
Cave Art – Street Art – Bin Art – Humans! The ideas you can get, just from walking up the street, looking about you.
More of which – later!
