The Confluence of Freedom

"A man sets himself the task of drawing the world. As the years pass, he fills the empty space with images of provinces and kingdoms, mountains, bays, ships, islands, fish, houses, instruments, stars, horses and people. Just before he dies, he discovers that the patient labyrinth of lines traces the image of his own face."

Jorge Luis Borges, El Hacedor (Dreamtigers), from the epilogue.
