The Scream

I just read this and found it fascinating:

This is a piece of info from Wikipedia about Edvard Munch’s “The Scream”.

In a page in his diary headed Nice 22.01.1892, Munch described his inspiration for the image thus:
“I was walking along a path with two friends — the sun was setting — suddenly the sky turned blood red — I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence — there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city — my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety — and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.”

Perhaps he sensed the rocks crying out to God…
