I am honored to announce that the founders of The Creative Museum have joined me to become authors on this blog.
The museum’s extraordinary collection includes magnificent works from Africa, North and South America, Europe, Asia, and the South Sea Islands, and also spans centuries. Just as it took a world-class collector’s eye to gather such combs, it took the same eye to photograph them so carefully. The Creative Museum has written a history of the world through comb making.
As I get older, I realize that the convictions I had when my energy was boundless were not the lone leaves on the tree at the end of the world. I was not alone. My conviction that hair combs were profound works of art was shared.
And now, our audience of art lovers and comb collectors can enjoy other points of view. The most wonderful addition is that Creative Museum posts will be written in French! I will translate them into English in the comments section.
Bonne chance, mes amis!
Myrna, I think the Chinese claw I sold you had a blonde tortoiseshell ball. Wanna send me a picture of it?
Wonderful! And me with my stupid Latin….
Latin? I love Latin! It is one of the greatest languages the world has ever known. I grew up singing choral music. I am also going to try to post some things in Spanish, with English translation in the comments.
Gloria in excelsis deo
Et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis
Gratias agimus tibi propter magnam gloriam tuam
Domine Deus, Rex caelestis, Deus Pater omnipotens
Domine fili unigenite, Jesu Christe
Domine Deus, Agnus Dei, Filius patris
Qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis
Qui tollis peccata mundi suscipe deprecationem nostram
Qui sedes ad dexteram patris miserere nobis
Quoniam tu solus sanctus
Tu solus Dominus
Tu solus Altissimus, Jesu Christe
Cum Sancto Spiritu in gloria Dei Patris.
