This powerfully abstract figure raises his hands to his chest in an attitude of perpetual prayer. Long ago, some individual otherwise unknown offered this as a gift to his gods in return for their favor. No one remembers those gods today, the culture and the people have vanished. And yet, through this small figure we feel a direct bond of human communication, as if the personality of that ancient life had been transferred to the stone. - (PF.1039)
