â€œCeci n'est pas une pipeâ€ (This is not a pipe) by RenÃ Magritte illustrates (in every sense of â€˜illustrateâ€) that he did not paint a pipe. No matter how accurate one is to rendering a pipe, it will never be a pipe, just a mere depiction or illustration of a pipe. If one were to carve, drill, and shape briar wood into a pipe, then you'd have a pipe. This is all quite obvious when spelled out, although oneâ€s first reaction is that the painting is a pipe. This RenÃ Magritte painting speaks so much about the illustration of something vs. the embodiment of something. Everything has an intrinsic size. I could make a 100â€ X 100â€ painting depicting ecstasy, but I could not then scale it down to 10â€ X 10â€, and with the same the result. An appropriate title of the new 10â€ by 10â€ painting would be â€œCe n'est pas de lâ€extase,â€ â€œThis is not ecstasyâ€. Therefore, if that is the only goal is to representing or illustrating physical objects, scale doesnâ€t matter. Yet, weather you are representing physical objects, splattering paint, or the other, scale is intrinsic to sentential experiences.
