We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The ancient Greeks named that partial-figure sculptural form -- actually there were two classic forms, the "prosopon" would have included Bach's shoulders and as much as his upper arms and down to his waist. The "thorax" form is what you see in the illo -- head and middle ends of the collarbones and upper sternum. Pliny came along later and in the Latin called 'em both "capita" if unpainted and "vustus" if painted. Interestingly, the english word 'bust" is derived from "bustum", the latin for 'funeral urn'.
