This carving is called The Philospher because he has large ears to listen with, but a very small mouth to limit how much he speaks.
This sculpture is on the private property of an agriturismo in Pienza- Podere San Gregorio. It was incredible to be in the private presence of something so ancient. It felt unfair, like this should be open to everyone all the time. But as Luciano told us with a shrug, “Italy has many ancient things.”
