Picturing a World

Jack o' lantern

Blog tip: Somewhere I read about American art students in Paris carving caricatures at Hallowe'en. I wanted to include a scene in which Jeanette and her friends carved turnips to look like their teachers, but it didn't fit dramatically. This picture—from a post at That Devil History—illustrates how really creepy the original jack o' lanterns were and something of what is involved in carving them. Happy Hallowe'en!
