Meleni Fairymeadow’s rarest works are temporarily showed at Crescent Moon Museum,   FairChang Village sim, one of the oldest and more reliable museum in SL (visit it)

It is a great and temporary occasion to look at Meleni more complex sculptures (they count hundreds of prims). In other words,  it is an unique opportunity to admire some of the works of one of the best sculptress in SL.

The exhibition is based on most of the sculptures that she made on exclusive commission. It is the only time they have been displayed together like this in public.


[Father and Daughter – Meleni Fairymeadow]

Inscripted on one side of the Father and Daughter sculpture, there is a poem by the person who commissioned the statue to Meleni. I think it is worth to report it here. It is in Italian, so i added below my personal translation of it (apologizing for my unsecure English).

The Eleonora’s poem inscripted on the Father and Doughter statue:

Quando sei andato via non credevo di poter vivere
Mancava la tua mano, il tuo guardare punti lontani
Quando sei andato via sono rimasta come una pietra di sale
Inutile come un granello di polvere
Superflua come una goccia nel mare
Impaurita come una foglia autunnale
Quando sei andato via non sapevo dove andare
Il tempo, che è un padre freddo si è preso cura di me
Il tempo che èun padre distratto m’ha cresciuta storta
Il tempo che è un padre severo m’ha punita senza motivo
Se tu fossi ancora con me m’avresti difesa
M’avresti resa sicura con le grandi mani e gli occhi buoni
Ma sono arrivata sin qui da sola tra sguardi di belve unghie nemiche
Padre io sono ancora qui.
Qui è quel che ho potuto fare
Quel che resta di me cresciuta senza di te.

Eleonora Scripsit – Meleni Fairymeadow Fecit – MMVII

[Once you left, I did not believe I could live anymore
I was missing your hand and your staring  at farer points
Once you left, I remained like a salt stone
Useless, like a grain of dust
Superflous, like a drop in the sea
Scared,  like an autumn leave
Once you left, I did not know where to go
Time, which is an indifferent father, took care of me
Time, which is an absentminded father, grew  me up as a twisted one
Time, which is a severe father, did punish me without a reason
If you were still with me, you would have protected me, you would have made me feel safe with your big hands and good eyes
But I came here alone, among sights of wild harmful claws
Father, I am still here.
Here is what I could do
What remains of me who grew up without you.]

I run there to take my photos.
