A Rose is a Rose

A rose is a rose is a rose.
-Gertrude Stein

In other words things are what they are.  

Unless... it is not a pipe:
Magritte's famous pipe paintings from 1928

But it IS a painting of a pipe.

So my rose isn't really a rose.  
BUT I can safely say that I understand my rose better after having communed with it to create the painting.
