Had his word choice been a little ominous? Hannibal has been accused of worse things that can ruin the mood. He smiles, indulgent, and looks down to the rich carpeting for a moment. "I believe that the interpretation of the signs are even more important than the signs themselves." He watches the photos be slipped away without protest, some of the favored ones already committed to memory - and then she leaves a single one free. He isn't going to forget the little slip of his sleeve in her last photo, the staged floating hand capturing surprises despite Lydia's calculated attempt at controlling the scene. It's an amusing anomaly, one that demands symbolism be assigned to it.

"God may do as He pleases, but without an audience capable of understanding it, what use is His art?" Hannibal speaks of God with a soft voice, not the stern proclamation of a preacher - but absolutely all of the self-confidence. "Art is a good lens to see life through. All of it is in the eye of the beholder."

Hmm. He looks content after speaking, like sharing this actually brings him a lot of personal joy. After a beat, he turns to look over his left shoulder, and then back to Lydia. "Would you like some tea?"
