If the sheer size of this magnificent figure did
not impress us, then his timeless dignity would.
His impossibly thin, aristocratic nose lends his
face the regal power of a primitive idol, even as
his elegantly abstract simplicity makes him very
much at home in the modern world. It is obvious
that he was an artistocrat in his own culture, and
there is no reason why he should not enjoy the
same status in our own.
