S For all that, Peplaforas shows some reticence in her beaming which we sense in the somber shadows that flicker across her smiles. These tones are due in part to the reclining in-turning directions of her mouth and cheeks that accompany their more outgoing swirlings into her environment. She is so "open-faced" that her skin is taut and she seems ready to dehisce and burst out to those around her. Yet, the secret which she is trying to bring to our attention is this strange sort of holding in. It is not a sequestering by and towards a private self but is a holding in and back by exactly that same deepening and spring-like place from Thinking of the Future Archaically /...

We shall see especially in the next chapter on Melas how the Archaic was awestruck by the way that these sculptures showed how marble could become flesh, and how stone and human flesh were continuous with one another and not at all dichotomous. 12 Their amazing capacity to carve marble and shape its radiance allowed them to create the wonderfully warm and tender skin tones in Pepla/aras' face. Somehow there is a chthonically feminine tone right in this stone, and that by itself keeps taking us to a vision of how human flesh seeps back fadingly into the stone in which even our very abstract civilization is ultimately ensconced.

In the face of their new masculinizing institutions and ideology, like the Apollonian Athena, the sculptor and his friends realized that chthonic-phusis could be touched more deeply in this androcentric context if feminine figures were used. Consider how we too are now involved in similar tangles of the masculinized and femininized and much as a result of the foundations that these Early Greeks laid for us. ) As a result, we too can be guided in our search for a future balance by such a feminine persona and life lines.
