    i saw the film version with richard burton playing dysat many years ago,seemed a mixture of classicism and freudian theories ,,are you going to to translate these themes and motifs into paint elle?

  • I am a real fan of the Equus play written by Peter Shaffer in 1973 – and yes loaded with Freudian overtones – I think he was inspired by a newspaper clipping of a child who savagely cut out the eyes of several horses and pondered as to what could be a feasible narrative explanation for such an event… These mythology influenced papercut stencils are a mammoth undertaking in order to print some requested curtains for my daughters room :) I think she is going to be a real fantasy geek – she loves science, nature books, fairy tales n legends :)
