Core studies exploration of message and vehicle// I decided to do it as Ophelia (wearing her mad scene underwear & and the lilies that are put on me in her grave) as a sort of goodbye to the show?? I guess?? It’s a quote from Winnie the Pooh & and I also thought it was interesting how its context changed from a death lily to a female body
(Not intending to romanticise the poor girl btw!!)
THE BEAST DEMANDS SACRIFICE
Greek Gold Oak Wreath from the Dardanelles, 4th century BC
This naturalistic wreath of oak-leaves and acorns is supported on two golden branches that are now reinforced by a modern copper core. At the back the branches end in obliquely cut end-plates, at the front they are held together by a split pin fastener concealed by a golden bee. Each branch bears six sprays with eight leaves and seven or eight acorns, as well as a cicada. Additionally, about a dozen single leaves are attached directly to each branch.
Gold wreaths were made in imitation of various leaves, including oak, olive, ivy, vine, laurel and myrtle. Most of these trees or plants have associations with various deities; for example, the oak was sacred to Zeus.
Wreaths were left in burials in Macedonia, southern Italy, Asia Minor and the North Pontic area from the fourth century onwards. This wreath is said to have come from a tomb somewhere on the Dardanelles. Despite their obvious fragility, the Greek orator Demosthenes (384-322 BC) writes that gold wreaths were worn for certain religious ceremonies.
i hahent watched doctor who since like halfway into series seven so i was hoping capaldi would make it better but i guess not
tbh i dont think capaldi is doing a bad job but holy shit the script is terrible… i mean the plot is worse but i can barely see a character under the crap thats being spewed every episode. seriously if matt smiths doctor was lacking character capaldis is straight up non existent. urh
I don’t know what this is about but I’m gonna say doctor who and I’m probably right
ding ding ding
that episode was so fucking bad it had no substance whatsoever it was so shallow
doctor who is being written so terribly that i honestly dont even want to watch it any more ………………….this episode may as well have been written by a lazy highschooler
