ART ‧ OBJECT ‧ STORY
There are two hand-made ceramic spoon figures in the mixed media shadow box. It can be served as spoon or as artwork for hanging on wall, placing on tabletop, or eating food.
Around 2020 A.C. (After Covid), the Spooniverse was born…
The Spooniverse includes Cold, Cool, Warm, Hot food energy planets, Humearth, etc. It keeps expanding and many mystic spoon-like beings evolve and flourish in unforeseen speed.
From this box, you will see “The Owl and Pussy Cat” which is historical remains from alien civilization outside the Spooniverse. The place is in the intersection between Yogurt Lake and Peach Syrup River on “Cool food energy planet”. Inside this historical remain, you will find a book full of poetic symbols by Edward Lear (see below). It is the love myth between Owl and Pussy Cat.
The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
“O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
What a beautiful Pussy you are!”
Pussy said to the Owl, “You elegant fowl!
How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do for a ring?”
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the Bong-Tree grows
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
With a ring at the end of his nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.
“Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
Your ring?” Said the Piggy, “I will.”
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.
