The alterations mainly involved giving the historical culture a more encompassing feel. Everything you do is effected by past events and we are products of them. Ghosts are also products of past events. This is the reasoning behind the way the circle shapes are formed from the paths that flow from the historical consciousness. Also, a blending of category is explained with new hybrid categories that involve both originals. The center is the actual individual. They are a product of all of this happening around them

This is a photo that I actually own and was passed down in the family... SUPER cool :)
There is just something about the artwork of the pinup girl that amazes me. I really wish I could have lived back in time where showing a leg was considered scandalous. The way women were used to promote ideas and show power really gets my mind rolling and wanting to learn more. Pin up girls were placed on calendars, hung in boys lockers, were inspiration to the men fighting in the war, and even graced the noses of planes that fought in battle. To me the artwork is such a powerful statement of America's history. This is why I have decided to brand an educational exhibit to show the history and importance of the pin-up girl. Hopefully I will be able to learn more and possibly let someone else share my deep interest in this subject.
