Such a delight to behold and discover its many elements!

The power to ward off evil might be a local belief, but even though I am a non-believer, I have seen that beauty such as this has killed the evil of boredom and ennui of my mind!

It is time to gaze at it and discover its nuances and be intrigued by all that the elements could mean.
