ZARATHUSTRA AND THE HERMIT by Thomas van der Krogt
This print is part of a limited edition of 10 hand colored woodcuts by Thomas van der Krogt illustrating Nietzsche’s masterpiece, Thus Spake Zarathustra.
With singing, weeping, laughing, and mumbling do I praise the God who is my God. But what dost thou bring us as a gift?”
When Zarathustra had heard these words, he bowed to the saint and said: “What should I have to give thee! Let me rather hurry hence lest I take aught away from thee!”—And thus they parted from one another, the old man and Zarathustra, laughing like schoolboys.
When Zarathustra was alone, however, he said to his heart: “Could it be possible! This old saint in the forest hath not yet heard of it, that GOD IS DEAD!”
