A description of the experience
Jacquetta Hawkes – A Land – On Contrast
The forces of attraction and repulsion, of mutuality, in all their forms, have acted like some universal, instinctive artistic genius, creating all that is most highly formed, most brilliantly coloured in the world: all that is furthest from the drab equality of chaos. Insects have intensified the colours of flowers, fighting has set delicate antlers on the stag, court-ship has given birds their brightest plumage. Love refines and sharpens human personality and provokes poetry and music.
