NIGHT 283 – THE STORY OF THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE CLEANER AND THE LADY

The little rock becomes anthropomorphised into a lion-man (who seems to be speaking in soundcloud-style decibels… that purple biro is just me diagramming to my students what rendering looks like in close-up!)

Anthropomorphic rocks were a stylistic feature of Persian and Indian miniature painting: when the rocks were being painted, the artist would often add little faces and characters to give the rocks life and spirit. Touches of whimsy from 500 years ago. I spent much of my MA studying these, I love them!

NIGHT 282 – THE STORY OF ISHAQ IBN AL MAUSILI

Little rock

That is actually also a place name, I’ve always loved the name: Little Rock, Arkansas! Imagine being from there or living there (where do you live? I’m from Little Rock, Arkansas!)

It’s still romantic and dreamy in my imagination as I’ve never been there!
