Break Through Capestrano

1982
Stone
Discovery is a breakthrough. We are carried along to this peak by a wave, a tune, a mood, a remembrance. I remembered the joy of that ridiculous and charming sculpture called the Warrior of Capestrano at the Archaeological Museum in Chieti. I suppose it was the gentle humor that I wanted to catch. I also thought of Paul Klee in this respect, as I often do.
