But no — they were not perfect. And it was the touch of the imperfect upon the would-be perfect that gave the sweetness because it was that which gave the humanity.
― Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D’Urbervilles
We step in the land of infinity, where the unbounded pursuit of the essence of life has been for eons manifesting itself through philosophy, spirituality, and art.
As we journey back to the Hellenistic Period (323- 150BC) the idea of still and unabridged perfection abates, allowing for the innocent movement and emotion to flow. The strings of precision and form are gently detached; character, vitality, and incarnation manifest themselves in patterns, transparency, and texture. Beauty does not conform to canons. By being thoroughly distracting and infatuating it becomes palpable, emotional, seen from every possible angle.
The Greek gods had fits of sulks and family quarrels, their hearts cherished freedom, movement and character and they would value one another in small and substantial details, in other words, they were just as imperfect as mortals. It is no wonder why love in ancient Greece was a deity as well.
