“Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me?” Ps 43:5
That’s what this sculpture by Aristide Maillol brought to mind when I saw it at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The artist did an amazing job — it was as if everything about her just felt so sad.
But there is always hope.
The rest of Psalm 43:5 says “Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.”
