Overview

Excerpt from Christ in Italy: Being the Adventures of a Maverick Among Masterpieces

What happens to you if you have drunk Hassayampa is that all place and time dissolve, so that if you should see, for example, a young girl with the shadow of dreaming in her eyes, work ing purple roses on centre pieces and making embroidered pillow shams, you would see much more besides: maidens spinning and spreading flax upon the grass, Indian women weaving baskets; savage women beating fibre from the palm, wild birds that gather down, - sea birds that take it from their breasts, and mothering ewes that tread out grassy hollows; lift and urge of the world.
