Two women made of bamboo, one red flesh; the other blue soul. "The ancient tyrant Mesentius from Etruria bound each prisoner to a corpse and left them thus until the corruption of the dead involved the living. St. Augustine hath writ that this is the very type and emblem of us mortal beings: the shining soul that must drag around the corpse of the body and its vile decadencies." - from The Kingdom of the Waves by M. T. Anderson
