Giotto And Guita Joe And The Violin d'Ingres

________________________________________________________________________________________________


© Oliverio






At the end
of the thirteenth Century,
Giotto created The Crucifix.

The year was 1293 but 
the ear of Giotto—
with divine intervention—
listened to music from the middle
of the twentieth Century.

He listened to a sculpted 
blues  musician named
Guita Joe.

Maybe that is why Jesus appears 
to be dancing on the cross.

Maybe that is why the top panel
of the crucifix once made flesh
of a violin's sound holes

Maybe not.
