Dream Sequence V: We Find Larval Bird Snakes Fallen from Their Nest and Debate Bringing them Home, ink, 2015

I learned a new word yesterday, courtesy of Herbert Read's otherwise somewhat dry Concise History of Modern Sculpture. This is always exciting especially when it's such a timely one. Horripilate, an adjective describing something that raises goosebumps.

Day 279 #MakeArt365

Glittering Eye, ink, 2015
“The thing that most impressed her companions, who consider her a saint, was her continuous weeping…. Then suddenly one day her eyes became dry, without one tear, and glittering as you saw them…. The devout believe this was the sign of God’s forgiveness. Nevertheless, Sister Aparicion does not believe that she has been pardoned, for old as she is, she still fasts and prostrates and scourges herself.”
“She is doing penance for two,” I answered, surprised that my chronicler’s penetration had failed to grasp this point.
-Emilia Pardo Bazan, Sister Aparicion, translated by Harriet de Onis
