Description
Kneeling respectfully before us,he seems to sit patiently, waiting for something. Perhaps he is worshipping or has just given an offering. His large head and his broad shoulders give him undeniable presence. His face is covered with tribal scarification, and his body is covered in paint and tattoos. The expression he carries is not one of anger, but more contemplative.His eyes stare directly outward,and the nostrils are flared. However, his lips are turned down as if in sadness. Completely nude, he exposes himself to us, both physically and spiritually and allows us to feel the power of the spirit and worship. - (PF.3667)
