I completely forgot to tell you this story when it happened...
...and we visited some of the other exhibits.
As we wandered through the Egyptian section, we came through a darkened hall and there was a lighted case...
Here's a close up:
Don't they look just like Egyptian Frozen Charlottes? Well, not exactly, and I imagine that's kind of an insult to the art scholars among us. Plus, I think the guard thought we were crazy. (even though he was happy to let us take these pictures with our phones - no flash)
Anyway, they sure reminded me of Frozen Charlotte dolls.
I bet you've seen them all over altered-art-land, and loads of you have used them in assemblages and books. If you don't know about Frozen Charlottes, HERE is a a bit of info about the little dolls and the story.
Even Restoration Hardware is on the bandwagon. Even though they don't call them Charlottes.
