The Sans of the Pure Cut

Why the Wild Tulip?

The tulip is a perennial flower, meaning it comes back year after year.

While the tulip doesn't last forever, it creates buds and seeds that make similar bulbs.

Historical reference- tulip instigated a craze in Holland in 1600s- tulipmania.

sans pure cut= without end

Knowledge ruins free beauty.

Utility ruins free beauty.

??? Free beauty = sublime ???

??? adherent beauty = beauty ???

Living in the information age, is it possible to experience free beauty, when non-knowledge is now known as ignorance?
