Art In Hats 2014 Event Featuring…Sailing to Byzantium Fascinator by Chop Zuey

CHOP ZUEY SAILING TO BYZANTIUM FASCINATOR_022

Last year, this spectacular and very talented lady, Belle Roussel, introduced her Watermelon Fascinator, at the phenomenal, ground breaking, first ever,  Art in Hats Event! Belle, being the fabulous designer she is, did not disappoint, ( like she could ever!!!), with this year’s exquisite presentation of her “Sailing to Byzantium Fascinator“! Belle drew her inspiration, from her love of the poem, of the same name, Sailing to Byzantium, by William Butler Yeats, thus giving us her wearable love and joy, personified, in the Sailing to Byzantium Fascinator.  Here is the poem that launch the fascinator of dreams…

That is no country for old men. The young
In one another’s arms, birds in the trees
—Those dying generations—at their song,
The salmon-falls, the mackerel-crowded seas,
Fish, flesh, or fowl commend all summer long
Whatever is begotten, born, and dies.
Caught in that sensual music all neglect
Monuments of unaging intellect.

II
An aged man is but a paltry thing,
A tattered coat upon a stick, unless
Soul clap its hands and sing, and louder sing
For every tatter in its mortal dress,
Nor is there singing school but studying
Monuments of its own magnificence;
And therefore I have sailed the seas and come
To the holy city of Byzantium.

III
O sages standing in God’s holy fire
As in the gold mosaic of a wall,
Come from the holy fire, perne in a gyre,
And be the singing-masters of my soul.
Consume my heart away; sick with desire
And fastened to a dying animal
It knows not what it is; and gather me
Into the artifice of eternity.

IV
Once out of nature I shall never take
My bodily form from any natural thing,
But such a form as Grecian goldsmiths make
Of hammered gold and gold enamelling
To keep a drowsy Emperor awake;
Or set upon a golden bough to sing
To lords and ladies of Byzantium
Of what is past, or passing, or to come.

This stunning fascinator, is a sail boat upon turbulent waves of Blues, Purples, and Red, with it’s gem encrusted sail of Kalahari Diamonds and Aquamarines, facing forward from the jeweled blaze of the sun, richly decorated in Garnets, Padparadscha Sapphires, Kalahari Diamonds, and inspirational words. It’s side emblazoned with “Sailing to Byzantium” and the mast topped off, with a star formed, from the Kalahari Diamond.What I get from Belle’s breathe taking work, is to celebrate life through art. Art bears witness to the past, the present, and our future! Thank you Belle, for this awe inspiring creation, which you can purchase at the awesome Art In Hats 2014 Event, which runs until July 31st!

As you can see, this beauteous sailor celebrates life by taking her plane…smiling, it’s much faster!
