will by Nature, like all the other imitators, be in thethird remove from the king 1 and truth."
" Probably."
" Then as to the imitator we are agreed; but tellme this about the painter : do you think he attempts to imitate each object as it exists in Nature or theworks of the craftsmen? "
" The works of the craftsmen," he said.
" As they really are, or as they appear? You should make this further distinction."
" What do you mean? " he said.
" I mean this: When you look at a bed sideways or in front or from any point of view whatsoever, it does not differ from its real self, does it, or does it appear different while differing in no respect? And does the same hold true of other things? "
" Yes," he said, "the appearance is different, but the object remains the same."
" Now consider what I am about to say : What is the aim in every instance of the painter's art?

1 The phrase " from the king " was possibly proverbial, and Plato in using it may have had in mind the ruler of the perfect State. See Bk. VIII, p452-454 D. This ruler of the ideal State probably corresponds to the creator of the ideal bed, and as in Plato's political scheme the oligarch is thrice removed from the king, even so here the painter is the third remove from the king. Among the conflicting views as to the significance of this difficult phrase (and there are many), the most reasonable appears to be this: that "king" is intended to represent God, the maker of the ideal bed. Hence "in the descending scale of makers" we have (1) God, (2) the carpenter or maker of a material bed, (3) the painter, whose handiwork is the picture of a bed.
