The Mystery of Art lets the form of art tell their own tale. Instead of analyzing the art expressions, this narrative work invites the reader to re-discover the functions of art. The narrative tale invites to explore the whole art field. Poetry, music, dance, painting and sculpture point to something more subtle than the aesthetic experience and lead the art lover, step by step, deeper into the mystery of transformation.
