Olive Picker

I found a lump of olive besides a path near Soller in Majorca.     Lump is the best description, for it as it had been hacked out of the tree in such a brutal way that I have not found any geometric shape that described the shape.   It looked interesting!!     The scarfe and the bag over the shoulder were just there in the wood, and only needed a little tidying up.    I found a face under the scarfe.   The body just seemed to flow from there.     This is a good example of the Ancient Greek  idea that "every stone contains a sculpture, all the sculptor has to do is release it".
