"The transporting power of many works of art is attributable to the fact
that their creators have painted scenes, persons and objects
which remind the beholder of what, consciously or unconsciously,
he knows about the Other World at the back of his mind."
Aldous Huxley, The Doors of Perception

From indescribable transforming flashes
such figuration-: Feel! and trust!
We know too well how flames can turn to ashes:
in art, though, flame is kindled out of dust.
