Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

I love miniatures too.

This looks to be a fun interesting shadow box. I wish they sold stuff like this up here.
One of the many things I enjoy about the holiday season is seeing walnuts and pecans in fruit bowls.

For a time, I collected Mexican retablos, especially the ones thanking the Virgin for rather odd interventions, like this one:

Anyone wishing retablos or nichos can find many on eBay (though it is much more fun to scout them in Mexico!)
