About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    Wow! I am not a true art critic, as you probably know, I just know what I like. A classic image updated into a hollow, ceramic, pill-taking, mechanized techno-hybrid, human melding with ferret. That is saying nothng about other details, including the variation of the symbolic shell with hand holding to it. I hope to read other comments.

    I love this and I particularly love the ermine/and/or ferret. I would love to know if it was common to keep pets of this type in this era. Every time I go to the pet store to get cat food I look longingly at the ferrets but know I couldn’t have one.

    Interesting question. It is true that at some point artists portrayed persons or families with their pets (normally dogs, such as the popular Italian Greyhound). In this case, though, as I suspected, the ermine seems to be mainly symbolic. A white ermine was a symbol of chastity. This is not surprising since the Medieval period and Renaissance both illustrate concepts through objects surrounding their subjects.
