Art was religion’s enemy, but nobody knew it. Ignorance’s persecution and deception’s excommunication are invisible marks stamped onto every wooden pallete.
What with the saints’ every feature executed with the finest human touches, it’s divinity could not be more countoured and highlighted. The bold kisses of sunlight onto the walls of the cathedrals remind tense shoulders and pointed slippers how much they are adored by the universe..
while they, not as much so.
God’s fingerprints are engraved onto every human brain for the mind is powerful enough to imagine vast forests and fine cloth, sweet wine and golden crusts of bread, cherry lips and tamed silver hairs, the softest pillows for varnished beds, herds of sheep and gallops of mares.
The artist is glorified, admired and lusted for the deceptions it’s brushes could print onto textured paper. Perhaps heaven’s mess sent graciously upon wiked ground, unfertile for carrying the growth of who is gripping too lightly on the artist’s border for beauty, were the wrong tones of purple, blue, red, yellow, or brown.
