awake thou that sleepest....

my absolutely most favourite (at the moment) carboot sale treasure\revelatory article has to be this print. It is a biblical saying illustated with a fairly arbitrary (it has to be said) image on tinselled foil paper of a scene from swanlake the ballet.
I,d guess that it would be from the 1930-1950,s. and from the northern protestant tradition.
The world inhabited by the ballet dancers dreamlike or what!! I,m there ,I have awoken to this dream for sure. I love the colours, the shinyness and the contrast of the vintage style of print amongst it all.
