The Three Muses Challenge - Steampunk

This is a true story. Well, it could be true. Perhaps. Maybe.

This week’s theme is STEAMPUNK. When the Industrial Revolution began in the late 1700’s, a noblewoman, The Grand Duchess of Schteamponk, became interested in the great changes taking place, so much so that she surrounded herself with the new machinery pieces and revelled in the progress. She became known as a champion of the revolution and the word “Steampunk” was adopted to ensure that she would not be forgotten.

The Duchess would be honoured to think that, in the year 2010, her name is still remembered and recorded in your art pieces.

Thankyou!!
