the fable of the moth and the sun [det]

detail of an old drawing of a moth (a winged princess) and the sun (the almighty king)... from the times in which I believed that genuine love between moths and kings could exist. Now I know: it is all a fable.


How silly of me to believe such stories.

    That sun is so cheerful;
    I want to print him and keep the print in my pocket
    so that I can pull him out and look at him when I am in
    the dark places.

    I like! the printing out idea doesn't sound too bad. I could take him to my chemistry classes...keep me out of depression.

    Hello! I would like to use this image in an educational application for iPad (of course with proper attribution to you). The application is designed to teach children to read in Spanish, and I think this picture represents beautifully the concept "sun".

    Thanks for posting this great photo available under Creative Commons!
