Where Does Art Reside ?

Art Quote of the Day

Leave a comment

Man is called by the ancients a world in miniature and certainly this name is well applied, for just as man is composed of earth, water, air and fire, so is the body of the earth.  If man has in him bones which are the support and armor of the flesh, the world has rocks which are the support of the earth: if man has in himself the  sea of blood, in which the lungs rise and fall in breathing , so the body of the earth has its oceanic sea which also rises and falls every six hours for the world to breathe.  If from the said sea of blood spring veins which go on ramifying throughout the human body, similarly the oceanic sea fills the body of the earth with infinite veins of water.”

Leonardo da Vinci  from the book You Are Here – Personal Georgraphies and Other Maps of the Imagination by Katharine Harmon
