Relief - Etching
This etching is a study of human nature in a symbolic view of human ideals. subject is down on the ground, he could have fallen, could be homeless, could be resting on the steet, might be a kid goofing around. The smile on his face could mean he is humbled by his situation, could be he is embarrassed, might be sarcasm. The idea he is on the ground and smiling in a situation that does not warrant his position give thought to a deeper meaning of ideals. As people are depressed by their surroundings a smile is always looked over where as if the subject had a stern weathered expression the impact of this image would require less thought.
