This is my ‘beacon of light’ for 2015. She is based on the moon and stars and not on the sun as the lesson was demonstrated in the Life Book 2015 class. My words for this year are serenity and peace, so I thought night time and the feeling of stillness and rest there is at night, seemed more appropriate to them.
I had to change the colour palette to suit the subject so, instead of the warm yellows and golds used by Tamara Laporte our teacher, I thought blues, purples and silver would be more calming. I rather ‘went to town’ with the glamour dust but she’s still looking so serene! Her dress has a scientific theme and is made by collaging line drawings of astronomical instruments.
The motto was taken from a quotation by Neil DeGrasse Tyson, ” Not only do we live among the stars, the stars live within us”. I love the idea that we are stardust and to stardust we will eventually return.
