Description
With his wide, staring eyes and attitude of reverence, this bearded man displays characteristics typical of votive figures since ancient Mesopotamian times. From what biblical deity does he ask a favor? In a manner similar to this, perhaps, Abraham stood vulnerable before his god in the hills of Hebron. We feel in this powerful piece an age-old bond between man and mysterious forces that are far larger than himself. - (PF.0163)
