The origin of the Cuckoo Clock

“You know what the fellow said – in Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had five hundred years of democracy and peace – and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.” – Harry Lime (in The Third Man, movie from 1949)

Funny because the Cuckoo Clock was also invented in Italy.

Silhouette 10 (the End)

Not all will agree that this is a silhouette and that’s fine with me. I’m a purist by nature but I am also a notorious breaker of all kinds of rules and prefer to go for the unknown. Sometimes my behavior leads to a dent in my ego and that’s also fine. I only live once and life is there to be lived.

For this serie of 10 ‘Imaginary Silhouttes’ I made use of 2 beach girls (they won’t recognize themselves 🙂 ) for the first 9 and Yvonne modeled for the last one. I’m not fully satisfied about all but think that there are at least 2 or 3 that are acceptable.

Let me know what you think and I’m not afraid for another dent …
