'If there weren't light, this stone would look cut off where it drops clearly from the shoulders, its skin wouldn't gleam like the fur of a wild animal, and the body wouldn't send out light from every edge as a star does... for there is no place at all that isn't looking at you.' -From Archaic Torso of Apollo by Rainer Maria Rilke, translated by Robert Bly
