Depending on their function and meaning, the following types of kiss can be distinguished: friendship, reverence, submission, peace, reconciliation, pleasurable, family, maternal, paternal, fraternal, welcome, farewell, love and erotic/sexual kiss.
„Art of kissing. Leve 10 “ visualizes the latter, the love and erotic/sexual kiss. The drawing captures the moment when the kiss opens the door for passion. Plato speaks of the „convergence of two souls“. This is the crowning of love. It is a cosmic experience when time and space are lost and two bodies seem to be one. To be in this state, so alive and completely in the here-and-now, is one of the great longings.
