notes from a small island

Head

This is the head of an Assyrian King, in the British Museum. I love his shell-like ear.

A word in your shell-like...

And I was hoping for a brighter day today, but it is more brooding weather. This is a picture of Douglas Head, taken from Onchan Head - they define the two curves of the bay.

Weird, I could have sworn I had already commented to this.. must have forgotten to hit "send" again. *facepalm*
I love your heads! The shell-ear is quite quaint, what a fun discovery on a statue! I remember that such things always made my day when I was small and visiting museums, as if I'd found a secret treasure grown-ups wouldn't see. *g*
Onchan head is a place I'd like to be right now. Such a beautiful, peaceful view!
I do love that Assyrian King's ear - and you are right, I would have loved it even more as a child.

I think Onchan Head might not be a good place to stand tomorrow - we are expecting the wind to gust up to 70mph so I reckon if I stood there then I might be blown off my feet.
