Savage Garden

Wild Forest (Yakushima, Japan)

In spite of all the refinements of civilization that conspired to make art ~the dizzying perfection of the string quartet or the sprawling grandeur of Fragonard’s canvases~ beauty was savage. It was as dangerous and lawless as the earth had been eons before man had one single coherent thought in his head or wrote codes of conduct on tablets of clay. Beauty was a Savage Garden.

~Anne Rice
from The Vampire Lestat
