His little people travel back to the distant past, to our ancient roots, as if seeking to identify their ontological presence with History or to feel its necessity, creating, with their bodies, the artist’s own Acropolis. From his very first steps, his instinct led him consistently to his personal ideal, as one thought was succeeded by the next one in a coherent whole, to complete his vision.”
