"This very recognition, that personifying emotionalizes, shifts the discussion from nominalism to
imagination, from head to heart. This image of the heart... was an important idea in the work of
Michelangelo... When Michelangelo portrayed Lorenzo and Giulano Medici in the Sacristy
of San Lorenzo, the features which he depicted were unnatural, not as they appeared in life
but rather transfigured to conform with the true image of their persons in the heart." - James Hillman
