<…> the revitalizing force of Platonic ideas helped to liberate art. The Renaissance sees a revival of Platonic (Platonistic) philosophizing about beauty <…> The aim of art is beauty; and beauty is itself a value of harmonious proportion, brought down from the cosmos to art. (Philosophies of art and beauty: selected readings in aesthetics from Plato to Heidegger by A. Hofstadter and R. F. Kuhns)

In today’s photo column I would like to present the image by Wendy Slattery (Evil_Elliot on Flickr) from Birkenhead, England.
