Delicatessen Reopens-Just Amazing!

Meilo as Madalena in Delicatessen

The Amazing Delicatessen sim reopens today Saturday, May 22, 2010. I jummped in early with high expectations since I know the sim owners, Meilo Minotaur and CapCat Ragu (via Flickr friends), and what great works they do. I saw a few sneak peak pics on their Flickr streams and knew it was going to be great. This is NOT a sandwich shop by any means.

Thankfully Capcat put a little write up in Flickr about the place for better understand and I will paraphrase here a bit: "de Maria, de Mariana, de Madalena" is a a project conceived for the 5th edition of All My Independent Women, a platform for feminist thinking and exhibition that occurs across Portugal. Most projects are on display in Coimbra at Casa da Esquina, between May 21 and June 18, 2010 RL.

This year's edition of AMIW revolves around the book "Novas Cartas Portuguesas" by Maria Isabel Barreno, Maria Teresa Horta and maria Velho da Costa, first published in 1972, banned by the dictatorship until April 1974.

This SL display invites visitors to embody themselves as a woman. They have 3 unique avatars free for all to pluck as fruits from a tree in the sim. Be sure to click the words, notes and trees for a English translation of the Portuguese notes. The sim is filled with many unique sites and I have a few pics here. There are pose balls around and photographers as well as explorers and artists will love this place. Check it out.
