    So you liked the poppy addict creature (awfully cute, I must say)…

    It’s fascinating. I was wondering what it represents; death, probably, since that’s what the poppies usually symbolise.

    Opium was earlier used against pain, mostly physical but also psychological. Although there is no name on the sculpture, it must be there for a grave, trying to bring solace – if an artificial one – to the grieving relatives of the deceased.

    Orlando is without question one of my very favorite films. It works on so many levels!
