Portion of photograph on canvas, ‘World is Mirage’ by June Perkins
This piece is inspired by the following words:
” Know ye that the world is like unto a mirage which the thirsty one thinks to be water; its water is a vapor. . .” (‘Abdu’l-Bahá)
“Verily I say, the world is like the vapor in a desert, which the thirsty dreameth to be water and striveth after it with all his might, until when he cometh unto it, he findeth it to be mere illusion. It may, moreover, be likened unto the lifeless image of the beloved whom the lover hath sought and found, in the end, after long search and to his utmost regret, to be such as cannot “fatten nor appease his hunger.” (Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 328-329)
