Gorgeous Vases of No Contact Wrestling

And so it was that An old favoUrite Has come to reclaim the lead! with 4 wins and 0 losses to each of them, we have . . .

Evangeline $120

Evangeline tells the tale of a great Acadian love story that is a part of the local culture here in my home of Nova Scotia.

Evangeline, A Tale of Acadie’ is an epic poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. In this poem he
follows her search for long lost love Gabriel, with whom she was betrothed.

Evangeline and Gabriel were separated by ‘The Great Upheavel’, also known as the Acadian Expulsion. During this dark chapter of English –
French relations in Canada, over eleven thousand Acadians were deported by the British.

Separated by the Acadian Expulsion, Evangeline and her betrothed would only be reunited in their old age when Gabriel, who was already very sick, would perish in her arms.

This work of fiction has become immortalized here in Nova Scotia, where you can follow the stunning landscape of the Evangeline Trail and explore the ancestral home of the Acadians! Nova Scotia invites you to
visit and explore our vibrant culture and landscape.

Maybe you will find your own ‘Gabriel’.

Mount Olympus $240

Zeus was not like the other gods. He knew what he wanted and he would get it. And he knew all it would take is a little bit of Magnum, Ferrari, or a dose of Le Tigre.

Unfortunately, meeting his philandering goals also meant killing mortals and upsetting the other gods and – much more than once – his goddess wife Hera.

“Zeus is here to set the record straight! What was Zeus to do? It was not his fault everyone wanted him! He was blessed with being “Zeus’ gift to women” everywhere! Surely, nobody could blame him for that!”

“This is complete ZeuSlander!”

Indeed, It was true that the people simply couldn’t resist him – Mostly due to him being an all powerful god,

Zeus. was. “IT.”

Zeus’ tangled love life (including many rather questionable relationships) resulted in all of these children.

His harem included

  • Leto who was the mother of Apollo and Artemis
  • Semele who was the mother of Dionysus
  • Maia who was the mother of Hermes
  • Dione who was the mother of Aphrodite
  • Hera, the wife of Zeus was the mother of Ares, Hebe and Hephaestus
  • Demeter, the sister and lover of Zeus, was the mother of Persephone

One thing was perfectly clear: By gods, he knew how to pose!

It was no freak gasoline fight accident that brought this vase to life, but rather, the magic of raku and when the ash was cleared, Zeuslander was left to ponder life’s important questions alone on Mount Olympus – forever searching for an answer to “why male models?”


Who will be your victor? Be sure to get your vote in BELOW!

  1. This was a tough one as they are both lovely. I like the blue in both pieces, but as Mount Olympus has a shine to it, that’s my choice for this week.
