Fascinating in its sculptural form and fine-line engravings, this great work of art is an enigma. Never seen before, the symbolism and mythological significance is obscure to us. One arm has a human-like posture and the face is undoubtedly human with its almond-shaped eyes, nose, mouth and ears. The mystery lies in the barrel-shape body. While one arm has a human-like posture, the other arm flows across the front of the barrel and extends to the hand of the other. One might be reminded of the Tin Man in the ‘Wizard of Oz.’ Whether he reminds you of the Tin Man or not, he is certain to spark your imagination and send you on a series of daydreams to a forgotten ancient world. - (PF.4086)
