Lara Roozemond and Edward Burnes-Jones

Love and the Pilgrim 1896-7 Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones, Bt 1833-1898 Presented by the Art Fund 1942

I was reminded of the muses of Edward Burnes-Jones when I beheld photographs of Lara Roozemond, especially of the images of his daughter, Margaret. The Sleeping Beauty Princess was named, Rosamond. If there is a movie or series made from my vision, I would like to see the Pre-Raphaelite Brother and Sisterhood become a integral part of our culture. The value of their work is on the increase. Their imagery is the source of all the Tolkien movies and Game of Thrones.

The creative grouping around the author, Virginia Woolf, is astonishing. Her mother was another model for Edward, and looks like his daughter. A study has to be done. Lara has the body of these women floating about in robes, because they do not own Lara’s long legs. She definitely owns the mouth.

To see Lara playing the piano, and hear her recite her poems, puts her in the same league at these ethereal and beautiful women. What is the core attribute and quality?

Door open
Close the door
Little door
Door does not open anymore
Door clamps
Door clamps
wants to demolish the door
Door stays closed
User manual lost
no idea how I can open it
Cupboard just thrown around
Cabinet injured
in pieces on the floor
screws are loose
boards are broken
but the door is open again
The content is clearly visible
everything fragile and malleable
“Exactly the way I want it”
the teacher said to his pupil.

    Lara Roozemond does not have a clue what it means to be my Pre-Raphaelit Muse. To here that there were 80,000 prostitutes in London due to the Industrail Age, is testomony to the truth that Man has put Woman beneath him to cushion his fall, as it was just before Adam and Eve were thrown out of Paradise. And we Old Hippies still take the blake for being into free love, there a million maidens around the world, giving it away for free. Not as much as a farthing or washer and dryer.
