Kitty — A 1968 computer animation by N. Konstantinov

"This Soviet computer animation was made in 1968. A group of Russian physicists and mathematicians led by N. Konstantinov created a mathematical model of a cat and realized this model in a program for the computer 'BESM-4.' The computer printed hundred of frames on the paper using alphabet symbols and then they were converted to the cinefilm."

Eerie and wonderful.

Dog (or Cat) High Chair

35ERTYU

From the website:

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Satisfying a mutual desire for companionship, this high chair permits your dog or cat to accompany you at the dinner table.

The high chair clips securely to tables up to 2" thick and its height adjusts without tools to elevate your pet to near eye level.

It has a frame of powder-coated 5/8" steel tubing and its arms are rubber-coated so they will not mar table surfaces.

By providing an alternative to sitting on your lap, running disruptively underfoot, or outright banishment, the chair assuages a pet (and its owner's) frustration, and promotes more refined behavior.

The chair's 600-denier tan/brown nylon fabric cleans easily.

Two tethers on the chair protect your dinner guests against any lapses in etiquette.

Folds for convenient storage and travel. 

10"H x 12"W x 9.5"D.

For pets up to 10 lbs.

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••

$49.95.

The Mourners — Medieval Tomb Sculptures from the Court of Burgundy

1

From the Metropolitan Museum of Art website:

2

The renovation of the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Dijon provides an opportunity for the unprecedented loan of the alabaster mourner figures from the tomb of John the Fearless, Duke of Burgundy, and his wife, Margaret of Bavaria.

3

Each of the statuettes is approximately sixteen inches high.

4

They were carved by Jean de La Huerta and Antoine Le Moiturier between 1443–1456 for the ducal tomb originally in the church of Champmol,

5

and they follow the precedent of the mourner figures carved by Claus Sluter and colleagues for the tomb of Duke Philip the Bold (1342–1404).

6

The tombs are celebrated as among the most sumptuous and innovative of the late Middle Ages.

7

The primary innovation was the space given to the figures of the grieving mourners on the base of the tomb, who seem to pass through the real arcades of a cloister.

8
