Description
Rendered in a naive, even primitive style, this sculpture nonetheless conveys the impressions of a human presence. It seems timeless and ageless, an embodiment of mankind standing in the face of the unknown. Even if this statue bears only the remotest resemblance to the ancient individual who left it as a votive, it seems to radiate with hopes and dreams that are as old as civilization, common to us all, even today. - (P.0539)
