  Et ignotas animum dimittit in artes
— Ovid, Metamorphoses , VIII, 188,
     epigraph to Joyce's Portrait

Paul Hertz, alias "Ignotus the Mage" —

"When we're doing the fortunetelling, as soon
as we finish capturing the face and the voice,
they get sent right over to the table." — Paul Hertz,
"Ignotus" video, 2013

Commentary:

"… ignotus  has faint connotations of lowness,
baseness, vulgarity"

— "International Eyesore: Joyce the Pornographer,"
by S. J. Boyd, pp. 31-60 in Troubled Histories, 
Troubled Fictions
 
, ed. by C. C. Barfoot et al.

Or not so faint.
