Panel Detail

This close-up of the panel shows the use of bevels and iridescent glass. The panel is especially beautiful at night when light from a chandelier sparkles the swirl of stars.

Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.

- Leonardo da Vinci.


by Galway Kinnell

On the tidal mud, just before sunset,

dozens of starfishes

were creeping. It was

as though the mud were a sky

and enormous, imperfect stars

moved across it as slowly

as the actual stars cross heaven.

All at once they stopped,

and as if they had simply

increased their receptivity

to gravity they sank down

into the mud; they faded down
 into it and lay still; and by the time
 pink of sunset broke across them

they were as invisible
​ as the true stars at daybreak.
