Example text

Furthermore, we have no doubt that she is aware of how the deep is in the process of fading and withdrawing into the darkness of a progressively lost past and she laments this advancing Western classicism. Yet, she remains no less integrated into, and trusting of, the deep's deepening. Many other artists, even in the following Classical and Hellenistic ages, showed a similar if more faded regret and tried in their own ever more "Western" ways to resuscitate such mystery cults. ) At this time, the chthonic cults probably still believed that they could influence and draw back these more surface-bound Apollonian ways of life in order to give them weight, mystery and depth.

She is thus not at all"held back", but continues with radiance to come forward with all her body from this "holdingness" and "backness". Her look can be uncompromisingly serious (but very different from the troubled graveness of the later korai) without conflicting with her bright forthrightness. Her, at times almost fearsome, intensity does not resist her expansive outflowing involvements in her surroundings, but buoys them up with eddies, undercurrents and swells that give them sub-stance and sus-tenance.

But this movement gathered back all their current blossoming life lines as well to a realm that kept them deepened and bound to the concealed and mysterious. This indefinite region, phusis, underlay their communal, personal and momentary lives as well as made them full parts of that nature that sheltered also all non-human existents. On the other hand, it teaches us more and more to understand how all phenomena, appearances, realities, events, institutions and entities are figures that are ever arising to the surface of this deepening deep.
