From The Commentaries Of Muad'Dib

Schoenherr,_John_-_The_Illustrated_Dune_-_Stilgar_And_His_Men.jpg

Pulphope illustrates a parable of M'uad Dib. It is a nice job though I never grokked this one, if I'm honest.

"It is said of Muad'dib that once when he saw a weed trying to grow between two rocks, he moved one of the rocks. Later, when the weed was seen to be flourishing, he covered it with the remaining rock. 'That was its fate,' he explained."

The linked work credits the visionary John Schoenherr as an inspiration. I don't believe Schoenherr ever illustrated this particular parable so I have posted "Stilgar and His Men" as a point of comparison (via Warren Ellis).
