Now that we have passed the climax, Eros has to take a nap to recharge. To continue the tour in the places of our worship it was necessary to step inside the greek section of the Metropolitan Art Museum, since they have a nice touch on the historical background. Aphrodite's (in the front) face is not revealed, but the left breast is out to underline the matters of the heart as her queendom. Dionysos on the other hand is exaggerating his rule on awakening sexual forces by resting his hand on the head of the symbolic feminine beauty. He is coarse sometimes, but that might be necessary for the balance of mundane things. As we know, no one controls aphrodisian flow of love in the end.

Aristotle, in the shadow of our friend Plato and illustrated by the gloomy Rembrandt, is imitating the god of intoxication by resting his hand on the head of Homer, contemplating material rewards as opposed to spiritual values, with the play of light and shadow on his features suggesting the motions of his mind. As for us, this is not a question to ponder. We pay for the destruction by gladly renouncing our scarce material possessions, while on spirit we never compromise.
