I always cry when he sees his mother after she'd been locked up because they thought she was dangerous when really, she just got mad at a visitor bothering her baby.
My favorite scene was when Timothy and Dumbo get drunk and they see pink elephants.
(For the next few pieces, unless I say otherwise, I got my information from the Metropolitan Museum of Fine Art's Website)
I love unicorns and this is the most well-known picture of one.
The Unicorn in Captivity, 1495–1505
The seven individual hangings known as "The Unicorn Tapestries," are among the most beautiful and complex works of art from the late Middle Ages that survive. Luxuriously woven in fine wool and silk with silver and gilded threads, the tapestries vividly depict scenes associated with a hunt for the elusive, magical unicorn.
"The Unicorn in Captivity" may have been created as a single image rather than part of a series. In this instance, the unicorn probably represents the beloved tamed. He is tethered to a tree and constrained by a fence, but the chain is not secure and the fence is low enough to leap over: The unicorn could escape if he wished. Clearly, however, his confinement is a happy one, to which the ripe, seed-laden pomegranates in the tree—a medieval symbol of fertility and marriage—testify. The red stains on his flank do not appear to be blood, as there are no visible wounds like those in the hunting series; rather, they represent juice dripping from bursting pomegranates above. Many of the other plants represented here, such as wild orchid, bistort, and thistle, echo this theme of marriage and procreation: they were acclaimed in the Middle Ages as fertility aids for both men and women. Even the little frog, nestled among the violets at the lower right, was cited by medieval writers for its noisy mating.
Because the unicorn is often used as a symbol of purity, it had been said that it would only approach virgin damsels.
The Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer, 19th–20th century (executed ca. 1880; cast in 1922)
By Edgar Degas (1834–1917); Cast by A. A. Hébrard
I remember seeing this in a museum once.
This is one of the most well-known pieces by Degas.
The sculpture is bronze with a cotton skirt and a satin ribbon. I like how it gives the illusion of a 'movable' skirt.
Another thing I've noticed in Degas's work is that in performance, in rehearsal, all of his dancers wear tutus, never leotards. Either they didn't wear leotards back then, or the subjects wearing leotards wouldn't give him that much to work with.
