Comment by Angus on History Has Been Woven by a Stick – The Astonishing Drop Spindle, on April 27, 2010. This is too good to miss!
Art is, at its most beautiful, best, intrinsic essence, three things:
3. a reflection of God
When useful, art stops being a thing to view, and begins to be a part of us.
When metaphorical, art is both the thing at hand, and a representation of greater things.
When a reflection of God, it is a humble desire to be more like Him. He is, after all, the Creator; the Artist.
I too, am flabbergasted.
