Here is the best example of how biology drives meaning—in theory, art, and even its recent nemesis, religion. (Remember that back in the old times religion was not only metaphorical psychology but also cosmology and biology. Today, our cosmology and biology have improved. We know that the sky is not a stone wall holding back water and that rain is not the opening of hatches in the sky-wall. Yes, the Bible says that. And it says that people were created by being molded out of clay and then blown on.)
What kind of objects are good enough to be subjects of artistic reproduction? Flowers are common—something pretty nature has made, and we love them so much that we have to make more, or try our hand at being God and making a two-dimensional one. Like all the guys in fifth grade drew naked girls. What’s the thing on your mind that you want to make more of? What object would you like to get behind and participate in by making one yourself?
GodMom is sturdy and vat-like. Look at the vaginal cleft. It is a quarter the length of the whole vat, I mean body. And the head? That’s exactly how the head looks to the baby that crawls about the baby world, which is abdomen, lap, and chest of Mommy. And what impresses the males that watch their women give birth? Fat girlfriend spreads her legs and an Uruk-Hai bloobs out. The vagina is the stargate between this planet and PeopleWorld.
The woman is the doorway and food-maker of visitors from People Land. What is essential about a doorway is its being a doorway. The decorations around the frame of the door (except the breasts) are secondary. The climax of the door is the vagina (the door proper) and the breasts (the food-maker).
Presence in art is conveyed through presence. Thereafter, rank of presence is determined by (relative) size. Important things are bigger than everything else. Realism is secondary to interest. And so GodMom is doorway and food-maker to early humans—and to us if we are exposed only to plants, animals, sky, and rock. (A spread-legged woman pushing out a baby is a shocking thing to behold. Human shitting mini-human is something at home in a bad trip, or a Bickford animation.)
