Description
With his beautifully burnished slip and incised costume, it is difficult to say whether we are in the presence of an influential mortal or a god. Clearly he is aware of his own importance, and we hesitate to inform him that the world is a different place from when he first knew it. Though small, he projects an enormous dignity, and we would be wise to accord him all the respect he is used to. - (PF.1190)
