Famous quotes with Spoor

  • Sculpture should walk on the tips of its toes, unostentatious, unpretentious, and light as the spoor of an animal in snow. Art should melt into and even merge with nature itself. This is obviously contrary to painting and sculpture based on nature. By so doing, art will rid itself more and more of self-centredness, virtuosity and absurdity.
    Jean Arp
  • I am Love: in heaven and earth I have no place; I am the Wondrous Phoenix whose spoor cannot be traced.
    Fakhruddin 'Iraqi
