When children enter foster care they are given a general test called the “Parents’ Evaluation of Developmental Status” (PEDS). Its purpose is to give a brief overview of their mental state and developmental state(, 2010). The test is intended to be filled out by the caregiver, but in most cases the primary caregiver is no longer available. Children coming from abusive situations will likely show signs of emotional and developmental delays. In some cases, due to malnourishment, children are physically stunted and will be found in earlier stages of development physically. From quite early in his career, Alken began to specialise in sporting subjects, and painted under the name of “Ben Tally-Ho”.His highly illustrative style won him many commissions, and his work was very sought after. He became a successful cartoonist and illustrator of sporting life, and his paintings and drawings of horses were among his most popular works. Today his work can be seen hanging in some of the most pretigious museums and galleries, including both theTate Modern, and the British Museum, in London.

The bricks were cut and frayed. Fabrics were chosen according to their implied texture – shiny or dull, smooth or course. The colour choices came from a fashion forecast in the furniture industry for that year. Eisler, J. (1990). Creative Music Therapy for the Mentally Handicapped or Emotionally Disturbed Children.

Particularly helpful for the monastic context is a 2014 article by Rebecca Krawiec that addresses the conceptually twinned authorial processes of writing and dressing in the production of monastic social memory, processes I see evoked in the Life of Antony and the Life of Paul.R. Krawiec, ‘The Holy Habit and the Teachings of the Elders’: Clothing and Social Memory in Late Antique Monasticism,” in Dressing Judeans and Christians in Antiquity, ed. K. Upson-Saia, C. Daniel-Hughes, and A. J. Batten (Farnham, UK, 2014), 55-73. See also R. Krawiec, Clothing Makes the Monk: The Rhetoric of Clothing in Late Antique Monasticism,” in Living for Eternity: The White Monastery and Its Neighborhood; Proceedings of a Symposium at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, March 6-9, 2003, ed. P. Sellew (Minneapolis, MN, 2009), (abstract only). For the literate monk at Apollo’s monastery, there were also the paired processes of viewing images while wearing the habit. The monk-viewer’s own habit was a constant reminder of his role as disciple and son to his monastic father, his membership in his father’s monastic community, and his own ongoing ascetic work. Pictorial clothing would have resonated powerfully with a monk’s memory of his own investiture, in which his father gave him his clothing, which he took up as a symbolic promise to submit to his father’s authority and teaching. A monk’s habit also symbolized the transmission of ascetic and spiritual authority and lineage, and had the capacity to convey a father’s teachings. Several examples of painted portraits from the monastery of Apa Apollo at Bawit make this clear.
