Of enormous presence, this stone figure radiates the spirit of a much larger idol. There is something intense and moving about the strong features and the forcefully carved lines. It is unclear whether the statue represents a votary asking a favor of the gods or the deity himself. It hardly matters: with the passage of centuries, this stone masterpiece has transcended to a level of energy that borders on the divine. - (PF.0224)
