The White Deer is a 96-page children’s novel written by James Thurber in 1945. It is a fairy tale about the quest of the three sons of King Clode (Thag and Gallow, the hunters, and Jorn, the poet) who are set perilous tasks to win the heart and hand of a princess without her memories who had once been a beautiful white deer.
Art for me has always been like a friend. It keeps me company, comforts and inspires. All art is autobiographical like the pearl is the oyster’s autobiography. An artist creates with his brain, heart and soul – not with his hands. And the vision of the artist is far more significant than the labour. However: “The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.” /Michelangelo/
