The definition of ekphrasis doesn’t ipso facto turn the Italian commentators who remade many Greek translations in the vernacular language as the final authority. Ekphrasis is a burgeoning word. In my opinion anything in this universe could be an example of the artistic potential of Ekphrasis. It stays in a dormant mode until we act upon it, thus bringing it to life. It is also interchangeable like “energy can be converted into matter and matter can be converted into energy.” Understanding the original pure thought is always going to be second hand regardless of how good I or we understood it. It can be translated or transliterated. With time, even our understanding of ekphrasis will undergo change.
