A stately pleasure dome decree
Where Alph, the sacred river ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.
–Kubla Khan, Samuel Taylor Coleridge
This was photographed at Academy of Science, also drawn there without reference so I 'm going to use that as an excuse for the Vasco Da Gama-ish appearance of the great Kahn. Coleridge's poem was evidently based on Marco Polo's account of Kublai's hunting grounds/park attached to his palace. I will be imagining some incidents from his life this month. Most of them will be the altered photos I have been showing.
