When I was at school, we read a short parable about two silver ladles – one was plain and unadorned, the other ornately molded. I forget the details, but I remember that the moral of the story was that although the plain silver ladle looked rather ordinary compared to the excesses of the more decorative one, it actually took a lot more skill to make the plain ladle, because there was nowhere for mistakes to hide. Lesson: true beauty lies in simplicity, and simplicity is the hardest thing to pull off.
