Allowing juxtaposing patterns and colors to create the rhythm. 3 wooden beads all varying in size are strung on an adjustable leather cord and hand painted in unique colors and patterns. Each piece is hand painted meaning there are no 2 pieces that are identical. Though these are finished with a gloss coating, they are not waterproof. It is recommended that these are kept away from moisture to preserve the quality and extend the life of the piece.
'The emotional meaning of the film—the narrative itself, really—is communicated through the juxtaposition of these images. During a stirring sequence, Eisenstein metaphorizes the Russian rebellion to the waking of a sleeping lion by juxtaposing images of three different lion statues: the first lion is sleeping, the second rousing itself, and the third has risen to full height."
This is a fun exercise using two wonderful and famous poems: "Ozymandius" & "The New Colossus."
