The Woman of Est
C. 2009. (origin date, 12th Century; unearthed, Deptford High Street)
Considered lost in the 12th Century, the icon, demi-god and – to a particular sect – godhead of a female worshipping offshoot of Islam, the IIAL here presents the woman restored.
Huge details has been found in the texts of the Est sect on the figure-representation of The Woman. These can be viewed in the IIAL archives on request.
Whether or not the Est sect was correct in their presumption that The Woman represented all archetypal female beauty throughout history (herstory), present, and future, what is clear is that the specific materials defined for usage (here fully restored and used as instructed), these materials are beautiful.
however it is in the internet.
In this time taken between posts, I have re-evaluated all the things I have to do before the year is out. I’ll not put them all here but tell you what’s to come this month in more detail.
I’ll be finishing my Masters dissertation for Birkbeck then organising the DeptfordX exhibition and – *drum roll please*- book launch of Vol. 2 of the IIAL journal(!) as well as possibly directing a few things that have popped up over the last few hours…but we’ll see on those. 😀 – I do love my busy.
