Hochob, Str. I

Hochob Structure I [January 3, 2003]

"On Structure 1 of the same city of Hochob ­­ more or less contemporaneous with Structure 2 ­­ these cascades of masks are an interesting compromise between the profile and corner variations, because even though they are essentially profile versions, they could be called "three dimensional" because of the marked break between the central entrance and the wings, and, above all, because of the effect of the noses, standing out in three dimensions over thier smooth lower walls. "
