"The word ‚attitude‘ often recurred in his conversation: ‚I would call it attitude, you know, the way that you can make something almost talk by the way the neck is bent, or the attitude of the head; you can actually make these sculptures talk, they say something according to the exact balance, whereas if they‘re absolutely straight.well, I suppose that‘s saying something, too‘.“
