What is the best substitute for rice paper?
I’ve been wanting to begin a project recently, that is making a handmade Japanese lantern, but I’m having some difficulty in finding the rice paper needed to use and I’m not sure what the best substitute would be. (And preferably something that doesn’t burn easily, if thats’s even possible)
Mulberry paper would work, but it may be as difficult to locate in your area as rice paper. You also might try parchment paper which you can find at the grocery store around where plastic wrap, tin foil and baggies are located. Parchment paper is often used in baking to keep goodies from sticking to cookie sheets..I’ve used it to make votive candle holder without incident.
When and where can I buy silkworms or silkworm eggs?
I live in Victoria and would like to hatch eggs and ‘raise’ some silkworms for a school project. When is the best time to hatch them? Where can you buy the eggs from?
You can buy them from Carolina.com. They are sent as eggs, but if you wish to delay hatching, put them in the REFRIGERATOR. Just lay the eggs in the tank. To feed them give them FRESH mulberry tree leaves or the paste substance.
How is the white mulberry tree in “O Pioneers!” symbolic?
I need to know how the White Mulberry Tree in this book is symbolic. Im trying to help my sister with a project for school, but we can not read the book. I have tried looking up answers online and I cant find anything. Any Help? I just need to be able to explain to her what the mulberry tree is symbolic to. Any answers would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
The tree is a symbol for white supremacy. I know it seems kind of out of place in a book about Swedish immigrants in Nebraska, but it’s true. I just wrote my honors thesis on something very similar. You see, once Emil returns from Mexico he has become tainted from the true path of life. This is only exasperated by the fact that he and Amelia admit their unfaithful love for each other. Cather was a violent racist and vehement Christian. Anything that wasn’t of the purest intent she considered a sin.For this reason, the white mulberry tree is a symbol of at first, christian ideals, but furthermore, the supremacy of these ideals (held by the whites in America) over all others. She masks it well by making Emil a stereotypical white European. However, if you look at his traits and character arc it is clear that she uses him as a symbol for a minority. Then, when Emil and Amelia and murdered underneath the mulberry tree, which remains standing- pure and strong- it symbolizes the triumph of White Christian ideals over who Cather considered impure heathens.
Not the most pleasant symbolism I know.
