This picture is bound to renew criticism of this space for a seeming reliance upon images of human handsomeness, even if their advantage lies in sharply articulating something else. Ever since the under development posting, this should have been obvious, but for the occasional digression into the sardonic.

I love this picture, of the face within the figure's face, for one thing. I love it for commemorating the sensation of learning, quite as well as if a poet or mathematician should have had to endure in the discovery of what he can do - and, conspicuously, for recording a sight which those who are willing to teach must have the courage to witness.
