When I decided to make a collage today I assumed it would end up being something totally silly with illustrations of dinosaurs and other odds and ends thrown together. I used the trusty P-Z encyclopedia that was still lying around in my room from my book jewelry box project and came up with some surprisingly wonderful things. With pictures from the werewolf, Odilon Redon, Richard II of England, Madame de Pompadour, and unicorn entries, I made a pretty awesome collage on the one of the thicker first page discarded from my nook journal project.
Being a Medieval literature nerd, I thought a quote from Marie de France's "Bisclavret" was fitting. I don't have my book in front of me, but the best translation I've found online is:
The werewolf is a savage beast;
When he is in a rage,
He devours men, does great evil,
Roaming and prowling through the great forest...
When I took a class on monstrosity in Medieval literature, I joked that to mock the "Team Edward" and "Team Jacob" shirts from Twilight, I'd make a "Team Bisclavret" t-shirt. This will have to do! Tomorrow I'm off to look for a frame for it.
