Going Between Quiddler And Hide
|Henry Moore, 1945 |
"People Looking At A Tied-up Object"
...I have gratitude for Psyche’s veil. It is the way “Nature loves to hide.”
"Phusis kruptesthai philei." ~ Heraclitus
And there you catch it. The image, the veil, is the image itself as veil, as the covering that hides and that is itself this hide. The unknown object of dreams is an image of psyche-making.
In the myth, the gods give humanity to man this way. In form, feminine. But in material, immaterial, veil-like. Her name is Pandora, which means all-gift. Her psyche-making is this. She is a personfied notion
for "image of psyche" which we inherit in its entirety without knowing what "it" "is".
