"...to enclose the present moment; to make it stay; to fill it fuller and fuller, with the past, the present and the future, until it shone, whole, bright, deep with understanding."

Virgina Woolf, The Years


Findings II: The Museum of Jurassic Technology

Un hombre que entró a verlo pasó tanto tiempo mirando un sacapuntas sobre un escritorio como el que había pasado dentro de la exhibición.

La verdad ¿es contenido o forma? Y la realidad ¿un nombre para una fotografía que se ajusta a un único marco?

Fruit Stone Carving

Almond stone(?); the front is carved with a Flemish
landscape in which is seated a bearded man wearing
a biretta, a long tunic of classical character, and thick-
soled shoes; he is seated with a viol held between his
knees while he tunes one of the strings. In the distance
are representations of animals, including a lion, a bear,
an elephant ridden by a monkey, a boar, a dog, a donkey,
a stag, a camel, a horse, a bull, a bird, a goat a lynx, and
a group of rabbits: the latter under a branch on which
sit an owl, another bird and a squirrel.

On the back is shown an unusually grim Crucifixion,
with a soldier on horseback, Longinus piercing Christ's
side with a lance, the cross is surmounted by a titulus
inscribed INRI. Imbricated ground.

Dimensions: Length 13 mm Width 11 mm.
