The Royal Tenenbaums [2001]

This is my adopted daughter, Margot Tenenbaum / I’m not in love with you any more / Of course it’s dark, it’s a suicide note / You used to be a genius / They just fell out of your pocket / Who? / She smokes / Why are you wearing pajamas? Do you live here? / I think we’re just gonna to have to be secretly in love with each other and leave it at that, Richie / The last six days have been the best six days of probably my whole life / Four minutes, forty-eight seconds. We’re all dead. Burned to a crisp.

I’d like to think that I can be pretty objective when it comes to observing art, but once in a while I find pieces like this sculpture that strike a chord with me. This is Phrasikleia. A kore sculpture of the Greek Archaic Period, Phrasikleia depicts the likeness of an young girl who died before she could be wed. An short, eery description of her tale can be read in the inscription on the block of marble on which she stands. It reads in Ancient Greek Tomb of Phrasikleia Kore [Maiden] I must be called evermore; instead of marriage, by the God this name became my fate. Inscribed on the left side of the block, is “Aristion of Paros made me.” If this interests you, I greatly encourage reading this study I found about the scientific and artistic processes involved in learning about this haunting and important piece of Archaic art.

If womens rights in the Muslim world, especially Saudi Arabia, were implemented by what’s stated in Surat-al-Nisa (Chapter of the Women) in the Qur’an and not barbaric backward minded ignorant Muftis, Muslim women would be travelling to space, never mind driving a car.
