the begetting of beauty
and hokusai found a view of fuji at hodogaya with twisted trees and twisted men, all looking in different directions
and riviere saw trees this way after seeing hokusai
and lalique saw trees and dragonflies
and mucha saw sycamore leaves like dragonflies
and they both saw green women with green breasts and toothy wing-like projections coming from their shoulders
and thus seeds and insects and twisted beings became woven into the new beauty that this synthesis was creating.
p.s. mucha imagined the jewelry and fouquet made it.
