Each of us has known moments of striking disclosure,  when the walls that limit our perceptions are pushed back  to reveal the undreamed of.
A sudden change of scale often brings about this enlargement of vision,  like the first glimpse of a galaxy through the telescope or  a drop of water 
brought into microscopic focus. The infinitesimal order of nature commands the same awe as its cosmic grandeur.

When, however, the perceived miracle is a human achievement, the awe is tempered with pride.
We learn something new about ourselves and our capabilities when, for example, we experience for the first time the revelation of lace.

Anna Bennett, Curator of Textiles, emeritus, The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco
