This week I am hosting Style Imitating Art and I thought I'd go old school on everyone and choose the Caves of Lascaux. I started reading about it and finding images online. Scholars seem to disagree on exactly how old these paintings are, the range being somewhere between 15,000 and 30,000 years old. I was looking at a virtual tour and I announced to my Handsome Husband, "I want to go see the Caves of Lascaux!"
HH: In France? (where he lived for almost a year in college)
HH: I've already been there.
HH: (Looking at my monitor) Yeah, I've been there.
Me: Fine, I'll go with someone else!
HH: Don't be like that!
Me: Why didn't I know you've been there? Do you have pictures?
HH: No, you weren't allowed to take any.
Me: Oh, well, what was it like?
HH: I dunno, it was like kid drawings on a wall.
Me: Was it dark? Were there candles? Was there electricity in there?
HH: I dunno, there was some kind of dim lighting
Me: Was it stuffy? Was it crowded? Did you have to crouch?
HH: No, it wasn't crowded, they only allowed a certain number of people in there at a time. Some parts of it I had to get down low. I don't think they let everyone go to every part of it.
Me: So you don't want to go again with me sometime?
HH: I didn't think it was that cool.
HH: Yeah, it was like kid scribbles.
Kid scribbles or not, I think these images are pretty darn cool. I will be wearing an outfit inspired by these doodles sometime this week and posting it Monday night (Sept 24th.) If you'd like to play, send me a photo of you in your outfit (and your link if you have a blog post) by Monday afternoon. Thanks, guys!
Here's something I wore this weekend. It actually kinda goes with the art. Maybe I'm done? That would be no fun...
