  1. Let’s see… wood flooring, check – wood walls, check – wood ceilings, check – wood railings, check. Now I like some wood surfaces, but this is ridiculous. The whole house looks like a sauna.

    @Frodo: I love me some wood surfaces too. But being surrounded by tons of tinder isn’t exactly my idea of comfy. Yipes!

  3. Seems I’m forever warning people about what can turn up between two mirrors…

    Here’s a helpful illustration discovered on the way to looking up something else (Lyke-Wake Dirge) the other day:

    Go on, tell me that’s not what that “objet d’art” is supposed to be. And you say this place is made of wood, yeah? Maybe not for long.

  4. @anodean: I’d never heard of the Anima Sola. Thanks for teaching me something, Anodean! And agreed… mirrors can facilitate all sorts of trouble.

    My first thought was that it looked a great deal like part of the sculpture “Ex Nihilo” by Frederick Hart above the main entrance to the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. You can see a nice collection of photos of it here:

    The title means “Out of Nothing” and refers to the way in which God brought forth Creation. It’s a concept present in the Big Three religions and also favored by some, though not all, of the ancient Greeks. You can check it out here:

  5. @Frodo: My first reaction to the interior photos at the link was “Kill trees much?”

    Then came a reworking of the great song “Signs” by the Five Man Electrical band, substituting “Lines, lines, everywhere there’s lines…” for the titular term. I think somebody really, really likes stripes……. |||||||

  6. @Emerald63: Aha! Another quality addition to my non-existent education in the arts. Thank you!

    A theme of humanity being created out of some smooshy clay is indeed more comforting than a female figure writhing in fire… and one of the multiple reflections does seem to suggest that there is an “Adam” figure beside her…

    Not that this makes the eldritch eyeballs any easier on the nerves. I think I’d still go toss the thing in the ocean.
