Description
This fellow seems to be making an open-armed gesture of offering to the gods. He is rendered with a naive, almost abstract style, which does not detract from the warm, human aura he projects. We understand that this simple sculpture is a clue, a reminder of a long forgotten life, of someone who--like ourselves- -wanted his world to be the best, the happiest possible. That person offered this gift in hopes of gaining that happiness and centuries later we can still identify with his dreams. - (FZ.052)
