"...the Head of Elche and a body from the Cerro de los Santos. The polychrome alone is a restauration, but it should be realized that the Lady of Elche retains important traces of the colour which decorated it. For the ornaments of the mantle and tunic we have made use of motives from Iberian ceramics or of themes which we might call astronomical, such as stars which are frequently found sculptured on statues at the Cerro. Those who are astonished at the striking character of this ﬁgure may reassure themselves as to its exotism ; it may appear fanciful but it is real ; this spirit hybrid between Greek and western, in which the Greek seems to relapse into a world still more complicated than the eastern, positively exists."
