Elsewhere on The Stanford campus rests a wooden statue created by a Papa New Guinea artist that reinterprets Rodin's classic figure. This solitary figure is pondering how he might recreate fellow mates from the surrounding mud and soil. So here we witness man's rejection of loneliness with a desire for human companionship... Now where did I leave my woman?
