Back to Maso's painting
Thanking Gawain and his Friends in heaventree.
This is also, in a very modern way, something of a mystery :
inspired by a beautiful painting ( I was left breathless when I saw it ) the curiosity of the gesture, told in the legend, and of the colour black, told nowhere that I know, started a dialogue in the ether of the present times.
I feel, without explaining too much, that the painting of Maso leaves the same lesson Hildegarda left: the perpetual love (let us call it the perpetual life-energy) bounding creator and creation, man in the center, being origin and ultimate end, and that is why the Virgin had to leave the Saint her belt as a cord : of love as it happens in the birth of a child.
Just look at this other Vision...it is told in the SCIVIAS fourth description.
