Drawing a horizon line is the simplest way

to draw a landscape as it separates

the earth and the sky. The horizon line is

an optical illusion of the Western mind that

has learned to perceive the world according

to the laws of linear perspective which

places the human being in the centre

of the universe. To this human

psyche one must see in order to believe.

Thus the horizon line is also a visual

paradox to the mind that has ceased to

believe in the divine but yet sees with ones

very eyes the heaven touching the earth

in the far distance.
