The Good Wife (5x10) - The Decision Tree
I am watching Dr. Who and I don’t even know why, I have seen 4 episodes of this show in my life but I’m excited and now Jenna Louise Coleman is riding on a motorcycle so now I’m REALLY excited.
Apollo and Daphne was Bernini’s response to the “Which is better: Painting or sculpture?” argument. This highly pictorialized sculpture was meant to be “read” from left to right and effectively recreated motion and direction, as well as a wide variety of different textures (i.e. human flesh, hair, fabric, leaves, the bark of a tree, and stone). It is widely considered to be one of the greatest sculptures of the 17th century. I’ve seen it in person and can vouch for its mindblowing awesomeness.
The sculpture is based on a story from Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Essentially, Apollo is chasing after Daphne so that he can rape her. At the moment Apollo catches up with her, Daphne cries out to her father, who turns her into a laurel tree.
