This poor caryotid has fallen under the load. She is a good girl… look at her face. Serious, unhappy at her failure, not blaming anyone, not even gods.. and she’s crumpled under it. But she’s more then just good art denouncing bad art; she’s a symbol for every woman who ever shoulder a load too heavy. But not alone woman… this symbol means every man and woman who ever sweated out life in uncomplaining fortitude until they crumpled under their loads. It’s courage … and victory. Victory in defeat, there is no higher. She didn’t gave up.. she is still trying to lift that stone after it has crushed her.. she’s all the unsung heroes who couldn’t make it but never quit.
