  2. Ooh, the first and third are exciting. They look like artefacts. I suppose that’s exactly what they are, really.

      That is what I was going for . A historically distanced observation of the mundane items. I chose to identify these household items as part of manual labour to separate them from the gender stereotyping with which they are associated.

        We should all move beyond stereotyping to quantum-stereoscopic vision; find unity in diversity and become whole. 🙂
