O Menino do Olho by Jose-Garel-Alvoeiro O Menino do Olho by Jose-Garel-Alvoeiro
:icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:

"The boy of the eye / O Menino do Olho"

- wax crayons on paper / lapis de cera sobre papel

40 x 30 cm - 2007


"...Now do you not see that the eye embraced the beauty of the whole world?
The eye is the window of the human body through which it feels its way and
enjoys the beauty of the world.
Owing to the eye the soul is content to stay in its bodily prison, for without
it such bodily prison is torture."

"... Ora, não percebeis que com os olhos alcançais toda a beleza do mundo?
O olho é a janela do corpo humano, por onde a alma especula e frui a beleza
do mundo, aceitando a prisão do corpo que, sem esse poder, seria um tormento."

Leonardo da Vinci

Great symbolism expressed wonderfully. I think as we age, most men at times have had the desire to look at life through the eyes of the boy within.
