COVER ILLUSTRATION

An artist’s impression of the clay model, now lost, entered in competition for the rugged iron statue of Gunner Elik, executed by Pietro Renzetti for the Mausoleum on Sira. The half helmet was distorted by omitting the transverse flange, so emphasizing the subject’s heavily-lidded and supposedly over-large eyes and “beak.” By Renzetti he is depicted looking down at the observer, so that this representation is an improvement on the final casting as it appears to the present observer from ground level.
