Description
As if huddling against a chill he alone feels, this ancient man pulls his knees up against his chest and clutches his throat. His emaciated limbs and shrunken features suggest his advanced age, while his elaborate earrings and ritual scarring indicate his social prominence. From deeply recessed eyes he stares into the void, as if contemplating the unknown landscape of eternity. His gesture is poignant yet powerful, suggesting a man who has lived a full life but is reluctant to relinquish his hold on it. This, he has remained for centuries, unable to make up his mind, suspended between one dimension and the next. - (PF.1407)
