The Strangeness Of It

Damselfly
Joris Hoefnagel (b. 1542 Antwerp, Belgium, d. 1601 Vienna, Austria)

 

“Watching him, it seemed as if a fibre, very thin but pure, of the enormous energy of the world had been thrust into his frail and diminutive body… as if someone had taken a tiny bead of pure life and decking it as lightly as possible with down and feathers, had set it dancing and zig-zagging to show us the true nature of life. Thus displayed one could not get over the strangeness of it.”

 


“The Death of the Moth”
Virginia Woolf (1882 – 1941)
