These window-paintings were always so slapdash - yet earnest in trying to mimic the promotional poster for the movie. The Lafayette tapestry has that same look and feel - 'hopeless but trying'. It made me interested in misshapen follies - in particular the ambitions of space travel and other near misses. </p><p> </p><p> </p>
