The Sacred and the Profane

Rotterdam, The Netherlands

A famous and revered Monarch dies a natural death at a ripe old age and is consigned to the earth with pomp and majesty. A global media event witnessed by billions of millions of people from all over the planet. ‘The Crown’ live.  

 

 

Not so far away, in the killing fields of The Ukraine, the corpses of unknown people are excavated from that same earth. People committed to their graves with their hands bound and bullets in their heads. The words of Kurtz, the famous character from Joseph Conrad’s novel ‘Heart of Darkness’ reverberate in the silence: ‘The horror! The horror!’

 

The world we are living in: the sacred and the profane.
