HYMN TO BEAUTY

by: Charles Baudelaire (1821-1867)

  

 Beauty! dost thou generate from Heaven or from Hell?
Within thy glance, so diabolic and divine,
Confusedly both wickedness and goodness dwell,
And hence one might compare thee unto sparkling wine.
Thy look containeth both the dawn and sunset stars,
Thy perfumes, as upon a sultry night exhale,
Thy kiss a philter, and thy mouth a Grecian vase,
That renders heroes cowardly and infants hale.
Yea, art thou from the planets, or the fiery womb?
The demon follows in thy train, with magic fraught,
Thou scatter'st seeds haphazardly of joy and doom,
Thou govern'st everything, but answer'st unto nought.
O Loveliness! thou spurnest corpses with delight,
Among thy jewels, Horror hath such charms for thee,
And Murder 'mid thy mostly cherished trinklets bright,
Upon thy massive bosom dances amorously.
The blinded, fluttering moth towards the candle flies,
Then frizzles, falls, and falters—"Blessings unto thee"—
The panting swain that o'er his beauteous mistress sighs,
Seems like the Sick, that stroke their gravestones lovingly.
What matter, if thou comest from the Heavens or Hell,
O Beauty, frightful ghoul, ingenuous and obscure!
So long thine eyes, thy smile, to me the way can tell
Towards that Infinite I love, but never saw.
From God or Satan? Angel, Mermaid, Proserpine?
What matter if thou makest—blithe, voluptuous sprite—
With rhythms, perfumes, visions—O mine only queen!—
The universe less hideous and the hours less trite.

 

"Hymn to Beauty" is reprinted from The Flowers of Evil. Charles Baudelaire. London: Elkin Mathews, 1909.

 

..she is not just a body, every woman is a sacred temple that expresses the majesty of life. Le Corps Mystique is not one more Editorial, is a visual ritual to Seduction,Hypnosis,Fear and Power of the Female being...
 
 Here Body is the epiphany of a sacred presence, a carnal invitation of that Unknow Darkness that is beyond our senses and expresses the Sacred, the fruit of the Wisdom. 
 Our Vision is not anymore in rational prison of the thinking but is abandoned in the land between reality and fantasy, walking closer to the gates of Religiosity. 
 
 Panagiotis Malliaris Photography is almost a Painting, a Hagiography of the Nudity, reaching the point of shooting as a dreamer who's watching an Unreal Woman in his Hypnos.
 His Photography is waving between the description of Seduction and his fascination of the Icon that is standing in front of him.
 What makes a Fantastic Artwork this shooting is his talent to shoot under the condition of this Magic with the curiosity of an explorer.
 
 On the other hand, Katya Clover is not modeling but delving herself in acting of a Divine figure. She takes herself away from herself,
 and posing as a creature who does not have anymore relation with the real time.
 All of her expressions are a monument of Sacred Sexuality, an embodied gift of High Art par excellence. She is dominating the time and space , creating a dimension of an atmospheric lust. 
 
 We will continue our journey to Le Corps Mystique with one more part of Panagiotis Malliaris Photography soon and of course we will create more and more editorials that inspire through their Icons 
 the passion for the experience of High Art as the Ultimate passion of life...
