Beschrijving

“Etruscan” indicates a culture transcending imagination weather man (such a portrayal of the woman ‘physics’). The here depicted man is stripped of the cultural influences that shape our image of man as strong. These influences go as far back as the ancient Greeks, when philosophers like Plato and Thales formulated aesthetics. The then created (think) about images include beauty still largely determine what we do or do not like it. These ideas are a cultural theme. They describe an ideal of beauty. This ideal defines how we should see things like, and thus how we actually see things. In other words, we see not so much the things in themselves, but we look through glasses (our ideal of beauty) that shows us our ideas of things. It is very difficult to see the world as it is, without glasses, stripped of our ideas about the world. I have here the man primarily portrayed as a man, not personally removed from the earth and not arriving in heaven. The essence of man is then only a small addition: the protrusion of the penis. Yet this is in my view an essential difference: the escape instead of cherishing inward as the wife does (see ‘Den’).
