In a gesture of tenderness that transcends time and culture, a man and woman are shown in a gentle embrace. The woman sits behind her mate, clutching his waist as if they were listening to tales told around the fire. In mood and gesture, they resemble depictions of affectionate couples from ancient Egypt or Etruria. Linked together for all time, they remind us of the timeless emotions which are shared by all mankind. - (PF.1274)
