What is your favourite piece written by Shakespeare?
Hamlet may not be my favourite Shakespeare epic (after seeing Captain Picard as Macbeth I fear I have been spoilt) but I do love the fact that Andre Tchaikovsky bequeathed his skull for use. What am I talking about you may ask?
Do you recall when the somewhat wondrous Damien Hirst revealed his masterpiece of a bejewelled skull worth upwards of £50 million. There is some intensely enthralling about this work. Although the use of a unknown skull upsets me slightly (surely someone close to death would have been happy to offer their own?) I have to hope my job allows me to be a little interested in anatomy. Indeed Bean and I often talk about him letting me have his skeleton if he dies before me. But that's another story!
So in a fit of wanton DIY zeal I bookmarked a certain page. A DIY crystal skull. 8601 pieces with tweezers included for only £49.99! I am rather intrigued as to whether anyone has ever attempted this rather thrilling jigsaw? I surely do not have the patience but maybe that is the point and this would teach me patience. A fabulous wedding present? What do you think? I am in love.
