a: Ionic column ~
b: the body of a growing boy
What: "The lengthening slimness of the Ionic column is like the body
of a growing boy. It bears aloft its capital like a delicate flower whose petals are scrolls wound round upon themselves in a double spiral, geinde yet firm, and living as the human hand."

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.
