Silos Bestiary by Lawrence OP on Flickr.The capitals of the 11th-century Romanesque clositer of the Benedictine abbey of Sto Domingo of Silos in Spain is a fascinating insight into the medieval imagination. Strange beasts and complex plantlife writhe around them, perhaps as a reminder that God’s creation is more wondrous and mysterious than we can ever fathom.

Meret Oppenheim, Object, 1936, fur-covered cup, saucer and spoon, 27.3 x 7.3 cm, MoMA, New York. Source
The MoMA online states that Object was born out of a conversation between Oppenheim, Pablo Picasso and Dora Maar. The three were in a Parisian cafe when Picasso commented on Oppenheim’s bracelet, which was wrapped in a layer of fur. Oppenheim replied by suggesting that all objects can be decorated in this way, and she went on to create this Chinese-gazelle-covered tea set for a Surrealist exhibition. The sweet, little symbol of polite, feminine socialisation becomes highly sexualised and invitingly strokeable. Good word.
