Joseph was a carpenter who made a wooden boy. Pinnocio derives from this theory; in the story of Pinnohcio there is no Mother figure, just a father. The mothers sex has been eradicated, as is Mary’s sex in the bible. Joseph was the God the father; he made Jesus with wood by hand which accounts for the virgin birth. Mary faked a 9 month pregnancy in order not to arouse susspition and alert anyone about the magic in operation. The making of Jesus and Pinnochio is a model for an alternative birth option which has been lightly veiled to in order to conceal the option of the male partner in premier possession of a child and therefore maintain the status quo of the main parent defaulting to the mother.
Instead of Joseph the father, we have Mary the Mother of Jesus and everyone in the world. The template for the suffering mother. Suffering over the death of her adult son.
Domestics head’s are puppet children once controlled by makers, now endeavouring to find new pastures and set up home elsewhere, taking home with them. A rite of passage; a bid to grow; growing up and out, oversized and clumsy, sad and lost.
There is reference to the three little pigs, alice in wonderland, little bo peep Italio Calvino and war of the worlds as well as the bible and Pinochio.
