|"The sculptured figures of Egyptian gods and god-kings,
the Madonnas and Pantocrators of the Byzantine mosaics, the bodhisattvas, and lohans of
China, the seated Buddhas of Khmer, the steles and statues of Copan, the wooden idols of
tropical Africa--these have one characteristic in common: a profound stillness. And it is
precisely this which gives them their numinous quality, their power to transport the
beholder out of the old world of his everyday experience, far away, toward the visionary
antipodes of the human psyche."
