evoke celestial allusions
I get an email every day, M-F (I think), from Object Lesson. Today it was a picture of a late 18th century Marquise ring that looked like stars in the night sky. Diamonds mounted on a dark blue enamel background were popular in the late 18th- early 19th-century. The description said that the blue enamel rings evoked celestial allusions. I just fell in love with that phrase "EVOKE CELESTIAL ALLUSIONS". It could be inspiration for an artwork. I'll get right on that, well, as soon as I am able.
