Fete Roundup Week 2, Part II

The divinely inspired Mrs Trefusis has put together a predictably elegant and literary Fête entry. She is on her own in Dorset with two children and has to go to the Coop to fetch her own wine. Yet even so, she has managed to come up with this heartbreakingly beautiful and detailed set of literary dioramas. The work comes in several parts and is entitled "Great Works of Literature Get You Into Trouble" .

[This entry falls in the "Miscellaneous" class, so is up against Derek the Boring Bird. The competition is HOTTING UP, I tell you. ]

Part I: Tess of the D'Urbervilles

Part II: A la Recherche de Temps Perdu

Part III: Julius Caesar

Part IV: Paradise Lost

Part V: Inferno

Part VI: Beowulf

Which is your favourite? Vote! Also, do put any questions for the artist on the media used in the comments.

In addition, I have an initial attempt at a first entry from the Waffledome in the 'Pet' category.

This is entitled "Tortoise Pétanque"

Hmm. We tried. But those bastards are FAST.

I think the one that says "Beowulf" is actually from Troy, don't you? I mean, check out the vegetation!

Once I'd finished attractively spitting wine all over my hitherto pristine Macbook (let's just all take a moment shall we?)I took a closer look at the entries. I'm a bit concerned about Part II to be honest. Surely that's a Belgian porn star in search of something a little bit more seedy than the temps perdu?

My vote is for Julius C. The 'blood' is a masterstroke. Is it strawberry sauce? Or were real playmobil people murdered for the sake of art?

We need to know.

Inferno and Julius Caesar are brilliant! Nice work, Mrs. Trefusis.

I love Julius Caesar, mostly because of the playmobile figures' inappropriate smiles during such carnage. Nice work!

peevish said...

Okay, I just gave the tortoise photos another look. I wish I'd been there!

I knew there was a good reason for the existence of Playmobil people! Julius Ceasar gets my vote. Purely for the blood. Love it!

Mrs Trefusis I bow to the genius of your playmobil madness. xx

You people put my ideas to shame. I don't think I can stand the pressure to compete with the likes of you.

wv: druide is this some kind of sign??

Paradise Lost gets my vote. More feeling than Blake.

In Dorset – I just did.
