Citizen of the world!

The Geographer

This male figure is endowed with intense energy. "Another Vermeer work, "The Astronomer" (posted on the right side), is commonly considered a pendant to "The Geographer". Considering these works as pendants offers an allegorical interpretation: the astronomer, student of the heavens, searches for spiritual guidance; the geographer, student of the earth, charts the proper course for temporal life."

Very long time ago I published the astronomer to ask for the next hop. At that time I was thinking in the sentence of Socrates: I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world. I have been away during the last month and now I'm going to chart a new transcental course:)
