Her cosmos is flanked in the four directions by beasts of the Apocalypse. An eagle sets the course, soaring at rise of light. In its train are the poems, the stories, the soul that creates. While at full sun, a mighty lion roams the veld, the fire of its passion coursing through its body, impelling it to devour and to feast. When light plunges deep into the great waters, it unleashes emotions that, like the bull, are powerful, intemperate.
Man, the fourth beast of the Apocalypse, represents earth, matter, that which brings forth life, decays and reforms itself. It is the home of dreams and darkness, the mystery that confounds us. These four powers: the unknowable, the ability to create, a keen appetite and an implacable heart are the gifts of life, the wonders that impel the naked woman to perform her ballet.
