Domina - mosaicist
#1
Hello all<br>
<br>
Here are a few images of the LEG II AVG mosacist in action, Lawrence has introduced himself in the general forum but has asked for a few images to be posted here. I have had to give a link to the page on the Domina website as geocities can be a bit tetchy sometimes about doing direct links to their websites. You can reach the write up [url=http://www.geocities.com/domina_uk/lifestyle/mosaic.html" target="top]here[/url]. I did the write up which will soon be replaced by Lawrence, and I know next to nothing about them so pelase don't judge his work on my efforts!<br>
<br>
Lawrences work goes from strength to strength and I will hopefully be getting some better pictures of his more recent work in a couple of weeks, once, I have them I will drop a notification in here.<br>
<br>
He uses period practices and techniques for the mosaics including cutting his own tessari (sp?).<br>
<br>
Lawrence gets on the forum here when he can so he ought to be able to answer any questions that you have but it might be a little while.<br>
<br>
All the best. <p>Graham Ashford

Looks great; my congratulations to him. I'd definitely be interested in more detail. How, for example, does he transport all that stuff?<br>
<br>
Say, is that a gladiatrix gazing on in the funny pants/shirt/shorts? <p></p><i></i>

Yes that is one of the gladiators of [url=http://www.ludus.org.uk" target="top]Ludus Gladiatorius[/url] along with one of the male members as well. The building in the background is the back of our display building while we were at the British Museum.<br>
<br>
The equipment goes in the back of his estate at the moment as I understand it.<br>

I have seen the famous mosaic of the girls in the Roman bikinis, but this is the first time I have seen one wearing a Roman sports bra. Is the lady in the photo wearing an item of clothing I was previously unaware of? Strictly an academic question, of course. <p></p><i></i>

Just you try holding a couple of grapefruits on your chest with only a horizontal strap bound around them, and then jump around a bit! I can imagine a vertical binding was quite necessary for practical purposes...<br>

After an incident which nearly trebled audience attendance at Dover Castle with a single strap around the chest almost coming away, we let the ladies take a look at thier costumes and come up with some alternatives, this was the best compromise!<br>
<br>
Mind you perhaps this could be a way of boosting figures.<br>
<br>
We are currently taking a look at what is known about female underwear for the chest and seeing whether or not a more elaborate version could be used in the arena ... but not for this year.<br>
<br>
All the best<br>

Yes, just jump right in Jen. Say, you could always be a gladiatrix; ever thought of that? <p></p><i></i>
