Talking about his work, Constantin Brancusi said, "The Wisdom of the Earth ... It was my attempt to touch the ocean bottom, with the index finger (trying to achieve seniority, archaic). For me it was too big fright when I lifted her veil ... the woman should never be disclosed ... Isis must remain covered under at least one of the seven veils of its beauty, that of the mystery - which provides valuation and immortality. "The Wisdom of the Eearth" it was, for me, what woman is much deeper - beyond your psychology. "
