Have you ever really considered a dog's nose? Is it not beautiful in every possible way? Shape, texture, colour, potential... look at the perfect reciprocity of the structure in the image to the right. It is both Art Nouveau and Modernist, atavistic and futuristic, pointless flourish and brutally utilitarian appointment. Ce n'est pas une le nez d'un chien.
I don't think it accidental that beauty is almost always as it is here- bilaterally symmetrical. After all, what is dexter without sinister?
A dog's nose.
The nose is our prow, its philtrum the proud emblem of our median or sagittal plane, that the most profound of divides and font of all reconciliation. Everything we are is arrayed behind this shallow little cleft, from the moment we are fully formed until our dissolution. The nose is the truth in the heart of the lotus.
