As the end of the term draws near, children's schools begin preparations for grade-level camps and play presentations.
My son's class will put on a play "Perseus and Medusa" based on Greek mythology.
Medusa is familiar (?!), and it's familiar in Japan, isn't it?
Perseus was a demigod born to Zeus, the supreme god, and Danae, the daughter of Acrisius, king of Argos.
Take Medusa's head.
Children call it Perseus in English.
The children read the 19-page long manuscript little by little every morning, and before they knew it,
I remember most of the roles.
Then we discuss and decide who is best suited for which role.
I looked for a book to try to remember what kind of story it was.
"Reading with illustrations..." is a book that can be enjoyed lightly, and I asked for it at the museum.
When I looked inside the cover of "Visual Edition Greek Mythology", it looked like a book given to me by my parents when I was in my twenties.
Very informative and interesting.
Greek mythology, which often appears in Western art and literature,
I think that it is often the subject of comics,

During plays and presentations,
Sewing enthusiasts are looking forward to preparing their costumes.
Excitedly wondering what kind of costume I should make for Perseus, I looked for it...
......not very helpful!
There was, there was. the one on the right.
It's a nice atmosphere.
I listened to a friend who used to restore clothes for art galleries and museums, and the story of Greek textiles and sleeves was very interesting and enthusiastic, so I was thinking about making a costume as simple as possible. Please," a letter was sent to my parents.
A grand plan turned really simple ^^
Then, I gathered with several parents,
Everyone is making crunchy crunchy.
Without any hesitation, I sewed it little by little and smoothly.
I also tried to proceed roughly, but I was accustomed to the finish and specifications of Kururu, and it was rather difficult to correct the trajectory of the strange cut. I sewed
It was fun sewing while smiling wryly at myself.
By the way, this Klimt painting is a famous work, but now the title Danae and Perseus' mother Danae are properly connected.
Discoveries like this are fun. (K)
