Dalai Lama | Never give up / Non rinunciare mai



"To remain indifferent to the challenges we face is indefensible.
If the goal is noble, whether or not it is realized within our lifetime is largely irrelevant.
What we must do therefore is to strive and persevere and never give up".

Aristide Maillol | Art Nouveau / Nabi painter /sculptor



Maillol (1861-1944) began his career as a painter and tapestry designer, but after c. 1900 devoted himself to three-dimensional work, becoming one of the most important sculptors of the 20th century.
He concentrated almost exclusively on the female figure in the round, consciously wishing to strip form of all literary associations and architectural context.
Although inspired by the Classical tradition of Greek and Roman sculpture, his figures have all the elemental sensuousness and dignity associated with the Mediterranean peasant.
