Before a decaying Classical setting a once powerful stands palms up before the viewer - his head is cast down in shadow, his tously hair and unkempt beard, now white, betray a long life of struggle - behind him a trio of men's faces seek a sence of direction - one even tentatively points forward. ( Jim Hahn 02/23/95)
