$10 RIPT Apparel: My Deer Friend

Join the conversation

If, as Martin Buber says, "lust reduces us to the level of the infant, but it is an infancy that lacks innocence, lacks the beauty of the babe", then perhaps true love raises us to the level of the wild deer and adds to us the beauty of antlers and ignorance. In which case, rickikat has done a helluva job here. The image's simplicity belies the artist's rather moving idea--sure, love makes fools of us all, but it makes us into wild and beautiful fools who are far too naive to doubt the power of holding hands.
