Here’s a quote from the mini-novel. And no, it does not refer to Sally Dali’s Corpus Hypercubus, though a recent article on BBC Online re Dali in the Fourth Dimension did inspire today’s pHantaBlog entry
‘He must have looked like a crucified man, minus the cross, encased in a transparent beach ball floating in midair.’
Here’s an earlier quote:
‘Wilderwitch braved her best bluster. “Don’t waste any of your seemingly few and far between little grey cells on that, Sal. I’ve told you before, or if I haven’t, I’ll tell you now, Witch will do just fine. Who’s your sad excuse for a girlfriend – Murk Mist, Mad for Mud Magpies? She looks likes she could use some brightening up. And I know just the fellow to do that. Got a solar spear tailor-made for the job.”’
==>>Franz Stuck’s “Sin“, which I’ve seen in Munich’s worthwhile Neue Pinakothek, googles up when you type in “Lilith” so she must be a candidate.
Too bad about the snake. Also too bad I already used Stuck’s Sin to represent Lady Lust, who doesn’t appear in the mini-novel except in unaccredited flashback.
<<== Here’s a shot taken in the Hamburg art gallery, ca 2008. Can’t remember who it’s by but she does have dark hair and very pale skin.(Turns out it’s Edvard Munch’s Madonna. Art gallery’s called Kunsthalle Hamburg.)
Finally, what about Wilderwitch’s fearsome soul self from even earlier in the mini-novel?
‘Which was when, desperation retaining consciousness, the Witch unleashed her fearsome soul-self. Sent it directly into the Master of Weir, jolting him, Saladin Devason, off his feet. Ordinarily, for safety’s sake, she’d have already taken herself to a between-space Shelter and sunk into a trance. Didn’t have that luxury today.’
How about this horror <<==? Probably couldn’t use it anyhow, since it’s likely copyrighted, but again, it suits the bill. (Called Charybdis but notes don’t tell who it’s by or where it came from.)
Or maybe this one ==>>. Character’s name is Skudakumooch and downloads as “Ghost Witch” so how could I resist.
