“Contraption” 03

“The last directly Whitehead Crossing related collage presently is “Jasper 04 Revisited.”

Hucka D.:

Here we have a rock from a neighboring valley — the blog friendly NORRIS, the stream I was briefly married to several years back — placed in the center of Whitehead Crossing. It has a cross, or an “x” if you wish on it. This “x” was not present during my marriage but added later. Is it to mark the rock as a tombstone? Or is it to define it as a symbol of Christianity, perhaps by a follower of that religion? I think the former now.

bb:

I believe I do too, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

So it’s perched on Orange Hill. This is the Jasper 04 Collage referred to in the title. Most of its elements return in the new work.

bb:

But, as I’m looking at it, everything is turned around in the new collage. Facing left instead of right and visa versa. Everything.

Hucka D.:

Baker and dog — dingo — are perched atop a high rock in both. The rock, again, in Jasper 04 Revisited is the one from Norris. Pull up a pic.

*Is* it a tombstone?

bb:

I don’t think so.

Hucka D.:

You sure?

bb:

Not totally sure, no. It *is* in the ground firmly, that’s for sure.

Hucka D.:

But at any rate, this is the crossroads, or marks the crossroads. “X” marks the spot, and so forth and so on, etc.

bb:

Guitar weilding Mouse is now playing in the middle of Whitehead Stream, Hucka D. Playing the the Von Trapp children that may represent rocks or perhaps white-ish rocks within the stream. Mouse himself may be an island in the stream. In fact, all of them are *on* an [ unnamed] island just below Orange Hill. Orange Hill is the cliff above them, with the Norris rock added to the top now to make it more similar in height or at least picture-wise to the rock cliff of Jasper 04. The island, then, becomes important. *Is* it Mouse Island?

Hucka D.:

A [definite] possibility. Good.

bb:

About the only thing that doesn’t reappear from Jasper 04 in the new work is the Gill’s Pier sign, Hucka. That’s Gill’s Pier, Michigan, where in 2052, according to the legend, Pierre will reappear and all carrcasses will be freed of their restrictive chains.

Hucka D.:

A great event it will be. Get prepared[ even now].

bb:

Mouse will be free to play guitar to the Sound of Music children. He can teach them the ABC’s of Do Re Mi.

Hucka D.:

The fox is opposite the dingo. This is death opposed to life. Valley to peak. Bottom to top. The dingo with its diamond tail is perched atop the cliff, like the diamond was pivoted atop a hemlock tree in the former collage just examined.

bb:

Way back in 2009 we examined Jasper 04, Hucka.

I remember the triangle. The Triangle. There’s not really the same kind of equal triangle in the repurposed work.

Hucka D.:

Nah.

bb;

But all the pictorial elements return, however.

Hucka D.:

Yeah. Better end.

bb:

Thank you.
