"As we come forward in time,
say up to 15,000 BC, the human image begins to emerge, often in one of three image
situations: 1) Person appears to be a satirized, bestialized, distorted phantom (more
often than not masked). Such terms, for me, translate back to the fact that it does at
this time recognize itself as human in any finished or even vertical sense. C.
