Holistic disapproval in this effigy of courage.
Mysterious panacea disguised in your haulage.
Malnourished thesis averts its eyes.
From the million corpses that fell like flies.

Image: ‘L’Homme qui marche I’ is a bronze statue by Alberto Giacometti. This is the third sculpture from Giacometti on this list. It depicts a tall and extremely thin man walking. Six copies of the sculpture were made in 1961. On February 3, 2010, a copy which was numbered “2/6” was sold for $104.3 million to Lily Safra, widow to Edmond Safra, a wealthy banker. This was the most for which any sculpture has ever sold. The statue’s iconic appearance is displayed on the 100 Swiss Franc banknote.
