Arthurian Legends Illustrated – The Female Quest of Remedios Varo: “‘[In Solar Music] . . . a woman plays a stringed sunbeam with her bow, and the music releases the birds in nearby trees from their cocoon-like capsules. Where illumination from the sun falls, it makes both the forest floor and her mantle green; but [Page 83] it is her own music, rising in arcs from the point where her bow touches the strings, that releases the birds from their torpor … the creator in Solar Music has the power to affect her environment not by accident or by fate but because she is atTUNEd to the sunlight.'”
