Aux abattoirs de la Villette by Eli Lotar, 1929 (from Documents)
"For every accessible reality, in each being, you have to find the place of sacrifice, the wound. A being can only be touched at the point where it yields: a woman under her dress, a god on the throat of the animal sacrificed."
— Georges Bataille, Le Coupable, 1944
