Contempt

Le mépris

 

“There is no reply so pungent that the silent contempt” (Montaigne)

Why such a fuss about an apple? The young woman takes a contemptuous attitude towards the animal and seems to ignore it. The poor gorilla is very unhappy and offer her sheepishly an “apple of reconciliation” (not to be confused with the “apple of discord” or bone of contention).

I took over here the allegory of the true force of nature (bestiality) developed by the filmmaker Merian C. Cooper in 1933 in his “King Kong” movie.

Human must not place himself outside (above?) the world, but he must accept the fact that he is a part of it. Human must give up his contemptuous attitude and resume dialogue with the world.
