How The Artist Becomes An Admirer, Defender And A Representative Of Nature Balthus, “The Golden Days”, 1944 – 1946 Is the heroine of this painting a disgusting dirty little creature trying to seduce the honest worker, probably hired by her parents, to fix the fire-place?

The Waves Of Cognitive Breakthroughs Vs Tormenting Tears Of Desperate Compassion Otto Dix, “Nietzsche”, 1912 Dix’s sculpture of Nietzsche’s head is a depiction of swarming clusters of intense metaphorical transformations characterizing through the mutual imaginative echoing the philosopher-poet’s perception of the world of humankind’s destiny.

Cosmic Plant-like Creatures With Hearts As Flowers Of Love And Budding Sexual Organs My star is a hibiscus flower Jean Cocteau Roberto Matta, “Stars of the Garden” In our universe the stars (boiling deaths) are like faraway pools of energy feeding (with itself) the planetary wombs.
