  4. 4. “From pre-abstraction, man is thus drawn to expression through the medium of myths and symbols: from that moment the artist had to intervene, to interpret these concepts by finite forms, engraving them on men’s minds… Thus the ordinary worshiper is initiated by an image representing phenomena caused by the divine power, and deciphers in a concrete way the enigma whose mystical sense is only understood by the Brahmans.” Viollet-le-Duc 1864, Beaux-Arts Lecture
  5. 5. “Let us first establish certain overriding facts. The various human races are not equal, and to take the two extremities it is clear that the white races… are infinitely superior to the black races… The former have an orderly history… the latter are still where they were twenty centuries ago… The further back we go into the distant past, the more marked become these differences.” Viollet-le-Duc 1864, Beaux-Arts Lecture
