    Redon’s Apparition is a depiction of the artist’s dream. As nineteenth-century artists explored their relationship with the natural world, Redon depicts a veritable golden age in which man and nature live in harmony. As the viewer becomes lost in the wilderness, they encounter the divine: a figure in a Phrygian cap, cloak, and leopard skin. The first depictions of Phrygian clothing were in the Persian capital of Persepolis but it was later adopted by the Ancient Greeks and Romans. In the influential Persian epic, Shahnameh (Book of Kings) the earliest Shahs wore leopard skin. Accordingly, the attire of Redon’s figure evokes an idealized past of democratic ideals and peaceful coexistence with the animal kingdom.
