    Dragonfly helmet, made in Japan in the 17th century (source).

    High-ranking lords began to embellish their helmets with sculptural forms so that they could be visually located on the battlefield. Exotic helmets (kawari kabuto) also allowed leaders to choose symbolic motifs for their helmets that reflected some aspect of their personality or that of their collective battalions. This helmet is shaped like a giant dragonfly. In Japan, the dragonfly is symbolic of focused endeavor and vigilance because of its manner of moving up, down and sideways while continuing to face forward. In addition, in ancient texts Japan was often referred to as Akitsushima (Land of the Dragonflies), because of their abundance. They were also thought to be the spirits of rice, since they are often to be found hovering above the flooded rice fields. - from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts description

    Finally had a chance to put together all the hand lettered section intros I did for A Woman in the House. My editor had the idea to do each section in a style that reflected the era covered in that section. I thought it was a great, albeit challenging, idea and ran with it. Still can’t believe they let me put Back to the Future-style 1980’s lettering over Supreme Court Justices!

    "You go to Italy and you look at Michelangelo’s work, and there are people saying, ‘Come on, let’s go, I can’t stand it.’ [Laughs.]  And it doesn’t lessen the achievement of what he has done. It just says that everyone is not going to be enamored of your particular art, and I don’t think that’s an unhealthy thing. But American society says, ‘Wait a minute. If that happens, then you won’t get to make another film, therefore you must make your films more accessible to people so that they will like it.’ If you don’t like my films, I can’t do anything about it, but I’m a street person so I don’t care about being esteemed. If esteem will help you make the next picture, then great. And if antipathy will help you make the next film, I don’t really care.I’m going to be myself. I want to make a film I can be proud of."  — John Cassavetes
