As we hold this splendid figure in our hands today, we see a human female in her most essential form. Such effigies, whether goddess or mortal, have been created since time began in every part of the world. The reaction this charming woman evokes in us is hardly different from that felt by the people who made her and held her long ago. She represents the beauty and mystery of human existence, the fertile promise of continuity. Her power is ageless, basic as a heartbeat. - (PF.1341)
