Description
This elegant figure stifles a yawn as if waking up after a sleep of many centureis. Will he be surprised to find himself in a completely different world? Modeled with fluid, flowing lines, he has the solid, graceful presence of a Henry Moore sculpture, at once abstract and yet logical. The elaborate braided hairstyle contrasts with the simple contours of the anatomy. A work of great subtlety, one that somehow transcends the ages. - (PF.2053)
