The Rosary of Voracity

Today's quote from ‘Hidden Faces’ (1944) a novel by Salvador Dali, as translated, in the same year and reportedly in the author’s presence, by Haakon Chevalier.

"The sun, the accomplice of all dramas, painted the six legs of each ant with the iridescent reflections of the landscape...
It was told later in Libreux that someone, in sign of vengeance, traced a swastika on a smooth riverstone with his finger dipped in Girardin's cold blood and that the ants held a Bacchic ritual and wound the rosary of their voracity around it."
