This week's theme was Lady of Shalott who was cursed to remain inside a tower on Shalott. She can't leave the tower or even look trough the window, instead she has a mirror in which she sees what happenesĀ  in the world and has to weave a tapestry on which everything that goes on in the world is shown. Eventually she falls in love with Sir Lancelot, and as he is riding by she looks trough the window, the curse is immediately fulfilled and when she realizes what she had done, she flees the tower. She finds a boat in the river and she decides to go to Camelot but she dies before she gets there. My final depicts the moment when she looks trough the window, and here's the moment as it was described by Lord Tennyson in his poem The Lady of Shalott She left the web, she left the loom, She made three paces through the room, She saw the water-lily bloom, She saw the helmet and the plume, She look'd down to Camelot. Out flew the web and floated wide; The mirror crack'd from side to side; "The curse is come upon me," cried The Lady of Shalott.
