The Sort of Dramatic Thing

Lee Durkee sent me an article ("click" here) about a painting of John Dee that used to show John Dee standing in a circle of skulls (see also) but then the skulls were painted over, probably because they creeped out the person who bought the painting. I guess my favorite paragraph in the article is: "Dee is performing some sort of experiment. 'It looks like the sort of dramatic thing chemistry teachers do at the end of term,' said Birkwood." Pictured, some of the skulls that were painted over.
