The first from the "Abstractions series" of art, sketches, abstractions, and doodles, all from my archives.
Detail of face of statue of unknown deity, found in Pheres (Thessalia region) in Greece in 1885.
"God of the golden bow,
And of the golden lyre,
And of the golden hair,
And of the golden fire,
Of the patient year,
Where---where slept thine ire,
When like a blank idiot I put on thy wreath,
Thy laurel, thy glory,
The light of thy story,
Or was I a worm---too low crawling for death?
O Delphic Apollo!..."
