Trivia:

This mural depicts a human male moving quickly through the Aerie. In 
the first scene, he is seen covered in chickfleas, speaking with the
hermit. In the second, he is seen clinging to a mushroom-like hat as
the strong winds of the Aerie attempt to snatch it away. In the next,
he is pondering the very artifacts found in this room, a speculative
gaze on his face. In the fourth and final scene, he is depicted in a
carefully polite and attentive pose, listening to the Councilors. An
observant eye, however, would note the bulging sack of loot clutched
in one hand, and a few feathers clinging to his weapon. A small sign
beneath the mural reads, 'PORTOBELLO: First To Explore AND the First
to Master the Lore of Aerie Volant!'

a writhing band of ebon flame

Created 06/14/2012

Long Description: Sable fires seethe and flicker, forming a perfect circle.

LOOK sable ebon fire fires flame
It is impossible to see where the fire begins and ends: it is a continuous
stream of movement, wild and chaotic. These are the flames of creation and
of death, sacred and profane. These fires witnessed the birth of worlds, a
rebirth, a sanctification.  They have danced within sacred spaces and holy
grounds. They have borne witness to prophesy and pain, been balm to hearts
shattered and broken. 


a biologically impossible twig

Created 4/3/2014

Long Description: A nightwood twig screams of ecological invalidity and biological impossibility.

LOOK twig nightwood
Torn from a pale nightwood sapling, this twig would make a fine play-toy for a
child or create hours of distraction for a pet. But in the right hands, however,
it is a deadly weapon, capable of tearing flesh from bone.  But that's a horrid 
prospect, so instead, lets imagine delightful children, like Beemo, enjoying it.

LOOK ecological invalidity 
It is unkind to ignore the impact that improper usage of terms has on those who 
are learned. For example, to refer to a limb that has been torn from a sapling, 
as anything other than a twig or small branch, could cause great consternation,
much less referencing it as a staff stout enough to cause damage. Assuredly, a
sapling's limb that was staff-like, would be entirely ecologically invalid.


a perfect, elegant black silk bow tie

Created 12/13/14

Long Description: The classic shape of a hand-knotted bow tie lies here, carelessly discarded.

LOOK TIE: 
The black-on-black pattern woven into the fabric is terribly clever - almost
cunning.  Spider webs form the background with playfully illustrated Amanita 
phalloides in the foreground.  The overall impression is one of subtlty with
humor, yet this neckwear would not be out of place at the most elegant event,
from weddings to funerals and anything in between.  One tiny bloodstain mars
the left corner.

LOOK SILK 
Impossible to mistake for any lesser fabric, this tie is made of the rarest
of materials: Yochlol silk.

LOOK AMANITA PHALLOIDES
Tiny little smirks and grins are visible on the 'faces' of the Amanita phalloides
as they dance in alternating rows across the ties.  Their little 'feet' are shod,
in oversized and comical oxfords, bow ties around their throats. In each 'hand' a
leering skull is held.
