From the Beast to the Blond, by Marina Warner.

This book was recommended to me today by Christian in my tutorial. I have a running theme and interest in the female body and want to take a deeper look in to this subject, to help with the themes and content in my work. We also talked about reading up on a wider range of feat rituals, as I have used the Day of the Dead quite a few times in my work. Christian told me about the Ghanaian death rituals, where they make coffins to resemble things which can have been important/loved in the dead persons life.
