a: An autochrome ~
b: a stained-glass window
What: "It yielded a grainy, positive image of muted pastels on a glass plate: a stained-glass window of the recent past". Check out the link. I demonstrates what these early color photographs actually look like at a whole. On a microscopic level, the autochrome "is like looking at a pointillist painting, a miniature Georges Seurat."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
