Wah! Taj at The Cheshire Cat Blog

Wah! Taj - the big picture

Dr B gets blissed out in, out in, out in India and sends the Cheshire Cat
an artistic distillation of his religious experiences on the great sub-continent.
It's been a busy year for the Cheshire Cat and his chums, which is why not a lot has been happening on this blog. Apart from lots of work and travel, not to mention redecorating the office, we have been redesigning this website to make it easier to navigate around the blogs, travel guides and other sections. The new streamlined layout is being gradually applied across the entire site, and as from this month to this blog.

But we haven't forgotten you, dear readers, and as a special Christmas bonus we present this delicious collage by the globe-trotting paradoxologist Dr B.

Since Dr B decided to take a short sabbatical (around two decades ago), he has been making a careful study of multifarious aspects of life and thought in various parts of the world. He sporadically presents the conclusions of his investigations in the form of ground-breaking, flow-of-consciousness reports, cakes, spicy dishes, fruit compotes, yodelling compositions and artworks, some of which find their way to the My Favourite Planet HQ.

We have been itching to share some of his astounding work with our readers for some time. However, the somewhat idiosyncratic notatation method he employs to record his complex, polyphonic yodelling arrangements are difficult for most readers to get their heads around; the compotes make a right mess of the office scanner; and - to be brutally frank - we ate the cakes at an editorial briefing. So we thought it would be easier to publish one of his collages.

A vivid colour explosion celebrating the religious diversity of India, which presents what Edwin Drood would call a "panoply" of spiritual splendour. The Taj Mahal, once described as "a tear on the cheek of time", represents this multicultural esoteric garment in concrete form which many consider to be the apotheosis of religious architecture on the sub-continent. As you may have already guessed, Dr B is a commited pantisocratist with Post-Bavarian leanings.
