    Just like when a racing car driver is learning to drive.
    There is no need to do this exercise with little projects
    as learning a theorem. Here in the Nala Damayanti story, Damayanti discerns her husband Nala, a virtuous human from the celestials
    who came in his form by his winking eyes
    and the celestials.

    Hi There, These are fabulous! I found your site b/c I’m planning a
    project similar to this w/ my 5th graders and I’ve been
    searching for a simple way to build the base for threading the
    Ceramic components to the totem pole. Any suggestions? Thx so much!

  11. corinnamori says:

    could you please tell me how you anchor the totems to the base?
    What materials do you use? Many thanks, Corinna

    The bases are solid wood and the strong wire that goes from top to bottom onto which the pieces are threaded is attached underneath the timber with a thread and screwed nut. I hope this helps. Max

  31. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or
    vice-versa? My website discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you’re interested feel free to send me an email.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way.

    Contact me on my email address which is on my Home Page. Max

    Hi again Mary. I’d still love to have some of your work (students’ or your own) on my website. Cheers Max Darby

    Dear Jen,
    I’m sorry you can’t get the photos to open. Everyone else seems to be able to do so.
    They do sometimes take a minute or two to download depending on your computer. Give it another go and wait a little longer.
    Perhaps you can email me directly and we can share whatever information I do have – (
    I flew into Tullamarine this morning and noticed 3 or 4 new poles placed there. There may be more.

    I’m happy to let you know whatever I know.

    Cheers and good luck

    My son’s primary school in Melbourne is considering painted poles as an art project. I can’t open any pics on your site. We live near Geelong so have seen those done on the foreshore there. I am interested in any ideas you might have about this project.
    Kind regards,

  35. max says:

    Thanks for your response. It’s always good to hear from people who enjoy any of the work I put on my website. The works are usually students rather than mine. There are some other ceramics files on the site. Please let anyone else who might benefit from visiting the site know about it’s web address. Thanks again, Max
