Varo: Musica Solar

Arthurian Legends Illustrated - The Female Quest of Remedios Varo: "'[In Solar Music] . . . a woman plays a stringed sunbeam with her bow, and the music releases the birds in nearby trees from their cocoon-like capsules. Where illumination from the sun falls, it makes both the forest floor and her mantle green; but [Page 83] it is her own music, rising in arcs from the point where her bow touches the strings, that releases the birds from their torpor ... the creator in Solar Music has the power to affect her environment not by accident or by fate but because she is atTUNEd to the sunlight.'"
