My favorite sculptor quote

The first hole made through a piece of stone is a revelation.
Henry Moore

I think so too.
I often think about cavemen, how they perceived the world. I know it's strange to think about that. Yet I do try to imagine what it was like to be a "maker" in those times. When I look at cave paintings, they strike me with their strength and beauty.
Aren't we all cavemen when we draw, or dance, or pierce stones for the first time?
(That was a strange comment I konw)

A lovely thought, the discovery and the excitement of doing something for the first time, like a caveman, or a child.
Powerful sensation, especially when you discover through art.
