This is my first serious, well-thought work (in alabaster) which I made on my sophomore year. Well, isn’t it true that good and evil constantly whisper into your ear? It requires considerable skill to recognize which voice is good, especially when you’re 18. I remember how my professors chose this work for the Academy holdings without my knowledge, and they decided to take only my head, saying that they don’t need the angel and the devil. Embarrassing! How is it possible for the people who perceive my work in such a way to teach anyone anything? I never gave them my head!
