Description
Though her head is rendered with mask-like abstraction, there is no mistaking the voluptuous sensuality of this woman's body. Intended for burial in a tomb, she evokes the pleasures of the temporal world, the promise of fertility and rebirth to come. Her power, the magic and mystery of life itself, is Universal, ever-present and as old as time. No matter what else changes in human civilization, the things this figure represents remain constant. In her presence, we share our emotions with the vanished culture that created her long ago. - (JC.2000)
