Some of the fan art on DA is amazing but this guy http://chris-secretkells.deviantart.com/ is just posting artwork ripped from this blog and saying it's theirs. Several people have called them on it but he just hides their comments.
I finally saw the film last night. It was rich in visual symbolism and filled with unexpected beauty. I wanted to see it again immediately and will catch another showing in the coming week, while it's still in Seattle.
That dA site is now deactivated, thankfully. Love the watercolour of Aisling (2nd pic)! I ought to draw some TBOK fanart soon myself...
They are all fantastic!! It's a pity we couldn't see the film in Spain!!
Does anyone know what are the earring things on Brendan and Aidan's ears and why are they matching? It's been bothering me since i watched the movie..
It´s a great and beatiful art.One question.Will the movie get a spanish distributor?Thanks and congratulations.
I lovvvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeee these! How I wished I was working on a movie like this! :DHope to see more from you guys up there :)warm wishes all the way from IndiaGulzar
Anonymous: those are probably ear cuffs. That style of ear decoration has been around for a very long time.
... or maybe Celtic hoop earrings. Please see link below, last paragraph:http://www.marariley.net/celtic/SentToKass/Cosmetic.htmCan't seem to find any reference of this in the web, aside from the link above. I'm not sure if the wearing of earrings even have any religious significance. Only Bro. Aidan and Brendan may be seen wearing them; and so, methinks it could signify a rite of passage, or a bond across distances (a bond that has come into communion). I could be wrong. The Abbott himself is earringless, as are the other monks in the Abbey. Hmmm, I wonder if the illustrated comics shed light on this?Wikipedia has a modest article on earrings (see Ring of Ear.jpg),http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earringwith this link:http://larsdatter.com/earrings.htm
Correction, some of the kids playing what I believe is called hurling also have these earrings.
