The eye

(Guardian Spirit of the Water, Odilon Redon 1878)

“I think it was his eye! Yes, it was this! He had the eye of a vulture -a pale blue eye, with a film over it.

Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold; and so by degrees -very gradually – I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye forever.”
