QuotationI have [Miguel] Covarrubias' new book [Indian Art of Mexico and Central America] from the Louisville library. Great Olmec heads in the jungle-this not so interesting. Football players with helmets. But the fantastic little pre-classical figurines of clay. A lovely slate mask of Teotihuacan style-the style I like best. Classical and pure and full of spiritual light. (Toltecs)
Quotation SourceA Search for Solitude: Pursuing the Monk's True Life. The Journals of Thomas Merton, Volume 3, 1952-1960.; Edited by Lawrence S. Cunningham. / San Francisco : Harper Collins. 1996, p. 155
