Lexi's Egyptian Mask
My oldest got an award the other day.
It was for Art. Not a big surprise there.
Neither was the 99 she came home with on her report card.
When I told her good job she winced.
She basically said that Art for her was not a big deal because it was too scripted. Meaning she was told what to do and that went against the very core of her little artistic self.
I get it. Of course, it's school and you have to also do as you are told.
One of her projects was this Egyptian mask
She was not fond of it at all, despite the 100 grade.
It came to me with ears nearly falling off.
A bit of some hot glue, cardboard, some glimmer modge podge, feathers, and liquid pearls and she still hates it.
She did cheer up a bit when I told her we could put it downtown in the consignment store with a price tag on it.
She says it's too spooky looking for anyone to purchase. Maybe she's right, but that was part of the assignment!
Well, let me know if you are in the market for an Egyptian Sarcophagus, since I happen to know the artist.
