In Pre-Columbian art there is much tenderness and understanding where children are concerned. Caught between a baby's pudginess and the slimmer lines of youth, a child stands before us expressing something that is clearly important to him. As adults, we perhaps don't treat his question quite so seriously, but do we remember how vital these things seemed to us when we were young? - (PF.0539)
