The old saw about the sculptor who created the perfect vision, and left everything real for the image. There is that fatal flowing out of the life force, whenever man puts his mind to creating. It is a crazy thing to do, to make beauty solid, to give form to life, and it requires the sacrifice of the life itself, more often than not.
