The Beauteous, Surreal Descriptions in the Scriptures

Does anyone else ever get the urge to try to draw out literal versions of some of Baha'u'llah's metaphors?? My artistic skill is limited to pixel art and nothing more, yet I still want to try to paint the above quote.

Yes, it is so

I once started to draw Abdul'baha's Tablet of the Universe, but it was beyond my skill, which is not high in art.

The other day I took a couple of photos of an Native Australian Baha'i painting she started quite a few years ago. It was like I was considering to draw

Must find and post them for you and all.

Regards Tony.
