A dark ballet

Asher Kelman

You are impetuous and brave, Charlotte for your title. In today’s hyper-sensitive bombastic, unforgiving political correctness, you could be, pilloried, crucified and then drawn and quartered and killed again!

However, miracles occur! One bullet from somewhere must have hit the bullets aimed towards you so I think your past work recruited Wonder Woman” to be your advocate!

In short this picture has a tentative modesty and purity that is forgiving of the hurts endured by the crimes ancestors, (uprooted like harvested crops) and then still today, merely tolerated in many places in our society.

You celebrate the lonely woman and advocate for her spirit and give strength to her endeavors.

Bravo Charlotte! Another fine image created in layers by your witchcraft!

Charlotte,

Look at this video, Leonard Cohen composed about Joan of Arc in a fashion of layers like the ancients who reused old precious parchments from Pergamon!

Then read the analysis of the song here, for 3 extra credits! 🐝

Charlotte,

Yes, she deserves beautiful French, not the English that burnt her! So I will try my very best:

Jeanne d’Arc est ma propre protectrice pour le courage et l’innocence.

Leonard Cohen lui trouve une robe de mariée blanche, ce qui est ironique quand on aura besoin d'un linceul, mais il ne faut pas oublier que les cendres de ceux qui ont été brûlés ne sont jamais enveloppées dans un linceul mais simplement éparpillées.

Thank you for the new info! I have seen Cohens video long ago when I was researching Joan before I did my first overlay on her courage and strength. I did not know of the lyrics. The white wedding dress Is most likely a metaphor for a bride pf Christ. Very Catholic. I was inspired by what you sent and made another work for Joan. I will love to read your take as I also have one as well.

Charlotte,

For a more female influenced version of the same song, by Jennifer Warnes, (with Leonard Cohen too), listen to this crucifixion-heavy expression of Joan d’Arc death here!

You will lalso enjoy the acoustic guitar here, I promise!
