Refrigerator Art -- The Benediction
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small
people always do that, but the really great make you feel that
you, too, can become great.
-- Mark Twain
After a distinction is made between “commercial” and "personal" art work, to insure the exclusivity of the tribe's work, a logo is designed and placed somewhere on all work done by members of the Stone Circles tribe, in addition to the signature of the individual artists or groups creating the artwork.
Following one tribal meeting, Despina's signature on her horses running through a decidedly Iowa-looking green pasture, flanked by green trees, not desert or mountains, suddenly sprouts the tribal logo.
As she contemplates the surprise addition, Bruno comments, "Is honor; is acceptance. Is good."
She doesn't dare even whisper, "But I'm not an Indian."
Last updated 7/17/08 changed to “commercial” and “personal” art work; (7/14/08 After a... connected next sentence. 3/11/06 put Bruno's quote in parallel structure.) 1/2/06. (Maybe this is already worked in somewhere...)
